BUREAU OF THE CENSUS


(All figures in


New orders for manufactured products declined $1.9 billion
or 1.3 percent to $143.6 billion, the Department of Commerce,
Bureau of the Census reported today. Shipments also declined,
down $3.0 billion or 2.1 percent to $140.1 billion, while in-
ventories increased $3.1 billion or 1.5 percent to $214.4 billion.
Most of the decline in new orders occurred in the durable
goods industries, which dropped $1.6 billion or 2.0 percent to
$77.2 billion. An increase of $1.7 billion or 28 percent in air-
craft parts orders was more than offset by declines in the auto-
motive, shipbuilding, and railroad industries, resulting in a
$1.1 billion or 5.4 percent net decline in transportation equip-
ment new .orders. A $1.5 billion decline in motor vehicle and
parts reflected a similar decline in shipments for this category,
since new orders in automotive assembly, which is the major
part of this category, are considered equal to shipments.
New orders for fabricated metal products dropped sharply,
down to $0.8 billion or 8.1 percent to $8.8 billion, while
steel order declines more than offset gains in nonferrous metals
orders, netting, a decline in orders for the primary metals in-
dustries as a group of $0.2 billion or 1.7 percent to $11.7 billion.
This is the third consecutive month that steel orders have
declined. New orders for machinery rose in June, with the
electrical category increasing $0.3 billion or 2.9 percent to
$9.7 billion and the nonelectrical category up $0.2 billion or
1.8 percent to $13.6 billion.
New orders for the nondefense capital goods industries in-
creased $1.2 billion or 5.7 percent to $23.0 billion. Orders for
commercial aircraft and aircraft parts more than offset declines
in most of the other categories. Without aircraft, orders for
nondefense capital goods declined $0.9 billion or 4.8 percent.
New orders for defense capital goods dropped sharply, down
$1.1 billion or 29 percent to $2.8 billion, with declines oc-
curring in all industries except aircraft parts.
The drop of $3.0 billion in manufacturers' shipments for
June was widespread, with 13 of the 20 major industry groups
reporting declines. The largest drop in the durable goods cate-
gory, which was down 2.6 billion or 3.4 percent to $73.8
billion, occurred in motor vehicle and parts shipments, down
$1.5 billion or 12.4 percent to $10.6 billion. A drop in steel
shipments of $0.6 billion or 9.9 percent to $5.8 billion also
contributed significantly to the decline. An increase in ship-
ments of electrical machinery manufacturers was the only sig-
nificant increase, up $0.3 billion or 3.8 percent to $9.4 billion.


CURRENT INDUSTRIAL REPORTS

facturers' Shipments,

entries, and Orders


JUNE 1979
M3-1(79)-6
or Release 2 30 PM. Wednesday, August 1, 1979

i seasonally adjusted current dollars.)

Shipments for the nondefense capital goods industries as a
group were down $0.4 billion or 1.9 percent to $19.1 billion,
while defense capital goods shipments increased $0.3 billion or
9.9 percent to $3.3 billion.
Shipments for the nondurable goods industries also declined
in June, down $0.4 billion or 0.7 percent to $66.3 billion. The
largest declines were reported by the tobacco industry, down
$0.2 billion or 19.3 percent; the paper industry, down $0.2
billion or 3.0 percent to $5.5 billion; and the foods industry,
down $0.2 billion or 1.2 percent to $19.5 billion.
Unfilled orders for manufactured products rose in June,
up $3.5 billion or 1.3 percent to $274.3 billion. The average
monthly increase for the second quarter of the year was 1.4
percent compared to a 3.1 percent per monthly average
recorded in the first quarter. Backlog of aircraft orders con-
tinued to rise sharply, up $3.7 billion or 5.2 percent to $74.4
billion. Excluding the aircraft orders backlog, unfilled orders
for durable goods declined $0.2 billion. A $0.9 billion or 1.0
percent increase in machinery orders backlog was offset by
declines in several other industry categories.
The value of manufacturers' inventories continued to increase
in June, up $3.1 billion or 1.5 percent to $214.4 billion. Durable
goods inventories increased $2.1 billion or 1.5 percent to
$141.6 billion, with virtually all industry categories except
motor vehicle parts reporting increases. Inventories of nonde-
fense capital goods manufacturers rose $1.1 billion or 2.1
percent to $53.7 billion.

Inventories of nondurable goods manufacturers increased
significantly in June, up $1.0 billion or 1.5 percent to $72.8
billion. With the exception of a 1.6 percent increase in April
which was coincident with the truckers' strike, this is the
largest increase recorded since the 1.5 percent increase in April
of 1977.

The figures on the durable goods industries in this report
supersede those issued earlier in the advance report on durable
goods. The present report is based on more complete reporting,
but the estimates are also considered preliminary. Final figures
will appear as historical data in the report to be published for
next month. The advance report on durable goods for July
is scheduled for release on August 21, 1979 and the full report
is scheduled for release on August 30, 1979.

The following is a description of the survey and definitions
used. These are provided to clarify the meaning of the items
involved and do not represent any revisions from those
definitions previously employed.




DESCRIPTION OF SURVEY


The Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders Survey
(M3-1) provides monthly figures that are comparable to the
annual totals published each year in the Annual Survey of
Manufactures (ASM). The ASM is a probability sample of
approximately 70,000 manufacturing establishments drawn
from the most recent 5-year census universe of about 312,000
establishments. In the ASM, each manufacturing establishment
provides data on employment, payrolls, shipments, cost of
materials, capital expenditures, and inventories as well as other
selected items. Until 1976, the ASM did not compile inform-
ation on unfilled orders or new orders. Since the ASM is
establishment based, it provides data for each of the 425
manufacturing industries in the Standard Industrial Classifi-
cation (SIC) system and area data for industry groups.
The estimates presented in the M3 report are based on a
sample panel of approximately 5,000 reporting units, consisting
of virtually all manufacturing companies with 1,000 or more
employees and additional medium-sized companies that
strengthen the sample coverage in individual industry cells. The
reporting unit for many medium- or single-line companies
comprises all operations of the company. Many of the larger
diversified companies file separate divisional reports for their
operations in different industries, although this divisional
reporting is not followed by all large companies.
Each reporting unit in the monthly panel is classified into
one of 79 industry classifications for tabulation. Many of the
reporting units included mixed industry activity even within the
broad industry categories of the monthly survey. However, the
survey estimating procedure assumes that the month-to-month
changes of the reporting units classified in each industry
category effectively represent the month-to-month movements
of the establishments in the SIC industries which make up the
category. This ratio estimating procedure is used for all items
compiled in the survey except for new orders which is discussed
separately below.
The M3 series is periodically benchmarked to the ASM for
shipments and inventories. The most recent benchmark was for
1974 through 1976 and issued in the report M3-1.7 released in
March 1978. In the absence of benchmark data for unfilled
orders, levels were set in August 1962 based upon the ratio of
unfilled orders to sales for companies reporting in the M3. These
levels were reset as of December 1973 in the M3-1.6 benchmark
publication released in December 1976.
The M3 data are subject to some limitations primarily
resulting from the relatively small sample used to develop the
estimates and the use of divisional and company reports to
extrapolate establishment based data. Precise measurement of
these limitations based on estimates of the sampling errors is
not available. In addition to the general limitations of M3 survey
data, the estimated levels of unfilled orders are subject to
further limitations due to the assumptions made in developing
these levels, the definition of unfilled orders, and response


difficulties. These limitations are discussed in greater detail on
pages i-iv in the introductory chapter of the latest benchmark
publication mentioned above. Generally, the limitations to the
unfilled orders data primarily apply to the absolute level of
unfilled orders and, to a much lesser extent, to the month-to-
month change in unfilled orders. Since this month-to-month
change in unfilled orders is used to develop the monthly
estimates of new orders, the estimates of new orders are subject
to fewer limitations than the unfilled orders estimates.






EXPLANATION OF TERMS

Value of Shipments-Shipments in the monthly survey are
equivalent to value of shipments as reported in the ASM which
are received or receivable net selling values, f.o.b. plant, after
discounts and allowances and excluding freight charges and
excise taxes. Included in shipments are the value of all products
sold, transferred to other plants of the same company, or
shipped on consignment.
Shipments also include receipts of establishments in the
industry for contract work performed for other, resales, receipts
for miscellaneous activities such as the sale of scrap and refuse;
value of installation and repair work performed by employees of
the plant; and value of research and development performed at
the plant. In the ship building industry the value of work done
in a given year varies considerably from the value of shipments
because of the long lead time between the input of the materials
and labor and the shipments of the completed ship. In the
annual survey, therefore, the value of work done during the year
is requested rather than the value of shipments. Value of work
done is also reported by aircraft and missile producers working
on cost-plus contracts.
The value of shipments figures developed from the ASM
contain duplication at the all manufacturing and industry group
levels since the products of some industries are used as materials
by other industries within the industry group. With the
exception of motor vehicles, it is not significant at the 4-digit
SIC group level. Since the M3-1 industry categories typically are
groupings of industries, this duplication is significant for all the
manufacturing, durable goods and nondurable goods categories
and the various market groups. The significance of the dupli-
cation within the specific M3-1 industry groups varies depending
on the 4-digit industry composition of these groups. It is most
pronounced in a few highly integrated industry areas such as
primary metals and motor vehicles and parts.
Since most monthly reports are for the entire company or
major divisions rather than establishments, the companies are
requested to report net sales, i.e., total company billngs after
discounts and allowances. Companies which file divisional
reports are requested to treat transfers from the division of the
company to another as if they were net sales to outside
customers. Although this definition of shipments in the
monthly reports differs from that used in the annual establish-
ment reports, it is assumed that the month-to-month changes in
company sales in the industry are representative of the
month-to-month shipments of the establishments in the indus-
try.







Inventories-End-of-month inventories in the monthly survey
are identical in definition to the end-of-year inventories in the
ASM. In the ASM, respondents are asked to report inventories
of individual establishments at approximate current cost if
feasible; otherwise, "at book values." Since different methods
of inventory valuation are used (LIFO, FIFO, etc.), the
definition of the aggregate inventories for establishments in an
industry is not precise. The figures on the change in inventories
from one period to the next are of greater significance than the
actual aggregates.
Inventories are reported by stage of fabrication: (a) finished
goods; (b) work in process; and (c) materials, supplies, fuel, and
other inventories. In using inventories by stage of fabrication at
the all manufacturing and 2-digit industry levels as well as for
the durable and nondurable goods sectors, it should be noted
that a finished product of one industry may be a raw material
for another industry at the next stage of fabrication. Insofar as
the durable and nondurable goods sectors and also the 2-digit
industry groups contain industries with successive stages of
processing, the same type of commodity may be included under
different inventory categories in the aggregate statistics.

New Orders and Unfilled Orders-The unfilled orders shown
in this publication represent the net sales value of goods on
order which have not been shipped. They are net of cancell-
ations and include all adjustments resulting from contract


change documents. Only those orders supported by binding
legal documents such as signed contracts or letter contracts are
included. Some large defense contracts are authorized and
funded in several stages. Only the funded portion of such
contracts are included in these figures.
New orders are not calculated according to the standard ratio
estimate procedure, even though they are collected as a separate
item. The reason for this is that not all companies report new
orders, and some that do limit their reporting to specific
products for which long lead times are required in the
production cycle. These companies, in effect, exclude new
orders received for products that are shipped from inventory.
To take advantage of the higher response rate for shipments
data and to include orders filled from inventory, new orders are
computed by adding the change in the backlog of unfilled
orders to the current month's shipments. Thus, the estimate of
new orders includes orders that are received and filled in the
same month as well as orders that have not yet been filled. The
estimate also includes the effects of cancellations and modifica-
tions of previously existing contracts.
Seasonally adjusted new orders are similarly derived from the
monthly change in the seasonally adjusted backlog of unfilled
orders and seasonally adjusted shipments. Many nondurable
goods industries and some durable goods industries have no
backlog of unfilled orders. Shipments are used as the estimate of
new orders in these industries.
