Constant-dollar inventories, sales and inventory-sales ratios for manufacturing and trade: 1990:I-1993:II.

THE CONSTANT-DOLLAR INVENTORIES, sales, and inventory-sales ratios have been revised beginning with 1990 to incorporate new source data. The constant-dollar inventories through the second quarter of 1993 are consistent with the revised inventory estimates in the August 1993 Survey of Current Business. The constant-dollar sales have been revised to be consistent with the inventories.

Tables 1, 2, and 3 present quarterly and monthly constant-dollar inventories, sales, and inventory-sales ratios, respectively. Table 4 presents fixed-weighted constant-dollar inventory-sales ratios--that is, ratios obtained by weighting detailed industry ratios by 1987 sales. Table 5 presents quarterly and monthly inventories for manufacturing by stage of fabrication.


Quarterly constant-dollar manufacturing and trade inventories, sales, and inventory-sales ratios for 1977-89 were published in the January 1993 Survey.
