Abstract: The data was collected by the Census Bureau. Its universe is all manufacturing companies but the sample was drawn from manufacturing companies with $500 million or more in annual shipments and selected smaller companies are included to strengthen the sample coverage in individual industry categories. The sample is based on information from manufacturing companies with $500 million or more in annual shipments, as well as selected smaller companies included to strengthen the sample coverage in individual industry categories. Data are available at national level for most 2-digit SIC codes on value of shipments, new orders, unfilled orders, total inventories, materials and supplies inventories, work in process inventories, finished goods inventories, inventory to shipments ratios, and unfilled orders to shipments ratios. Over 50 unpublished categories.
