Industrial activity in the United States continued on a downward path through the end of August with industrial production growth falling to a 31-month low.

Leading indicators of industrial activity such as new orders or new commitments continue to decelerate which suggests the weakness in the manufacturing sector is likely to continue through year-end.

Looking at the three-panel graph below shows the growth rate of total manufacturing new orders less transportation, durable goods new orders less transportation, and nondefense capital goods new orders less aircraft.

All three data sets represent new orders and tend to lead broader industrial production by several months.
