New orders for manufactured goods in May decreased $3.6 billion or 0.7 percent to $493.6 billion.

  • May 2019: -0.7° % change
  • April 2019 (r): -1.2° % change

(*) The 90% confidence interval includes zero. The Census Bureau does not have sufficient statistical evidence to conclude that the actual change is different from zero. 

(°) Statistical significance is not applicable or not measurable for these surveys. The Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories and Orders estimates are not based on a probability sample, so we can neither measure the sampling error of these estimates nor compute confidence intervals. 

(r) Revised.
