Revised historical data from the Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) Survey were issued on May 15, 2020. These revisions result from: benchmarking the M3 shipments and inventories data to the 2017 Economic Census data on a 2017 NAICS basis; incorporating the unfilled orders to shipments ratios obtained for 2017 and 2016 from the Manufacturers’ Unfilled Orders (M3UFO) Survey by applying these ratios to the respective 2017 Economic Census data and 2016 ASM shipments data; adjusting the new orders data to be consistent with the benchmarked shipments and unfilled orders data; correcting the seasonal adjusted new order data derived from the monthly estimate of shipments plus the change in unfilled orders between the current and prior period for January 2002; correcting monthly data for late receipts, reclassifications of reported data, and revisions to previously reported data; updating the seasonally adjusted data based on the results of benchmarking and the recent annual review of the seasonal adjustment models. These revisions spanned the seasonally adjusted data for January 2007 through March 2020 and the data not seasonally adjusted for January 2012 through March 2020. An updated Press Release contains revised monthly tables for January 2020 through March 2020.

For the Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders Survey, all current month estimates are preliminary estimates and will be superseded in following months by revised estimates.

For information on survey methodology and use of the data, including seasonal adjustment and other information pertinent to this economic indicator, go to the Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders website, which provides a link to historical data.

The Y-axis for the line charts may be truncated to prevent flattening of the lines or to present the complete range of data.
