Release Date:
October 3, 2019

On May 16, 2019, monthly seasonally adjusted data for Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories, and Orders, based on the North American Industry Classification System, were revised for January 2002 through March 2019. There was no accompanying press release containing revised seasonally adjusted data for January through March of 2019, and historical data not seasonally adjusted were unchanged. These revisions to the historical seasonally adjusted data were based on the results of the recent annual review of the seasonal adjustment models. Based on this review, the lists of series that are seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted were updated. Three unfilled orders series and one total inventories series that have been adjusted are no longer seasonally adjusted. Conversely, two stage of fabrication series that have not been adjusted are now seasonally adjusted. These changes were implemented on May 16, 2019 and were used to produce seasonally adjusted data from the Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories, and Orders Survey, beginning with April 2019.

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Shipments, Inventories, and Orders Survey, all current month estimates are preliminary estimates and will be superseded in following months by revised estimates.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