Data for 1978

Preface

collected under the pilot survey for the Producer Price
Index Revision, as well as a technical note describing the
program. BLS began collecting these test data in January
1978. In addition, this supplement discusses ways to up*
date relative importance data by using previously published
relative importance figures and to calculate composite
indexes by combining published Producer Price Indexes.
Data shown in this supplement are the same as revised
data already published in monthly issues of this report.
All monthly data are subject to revision 4 months after
original publication.

This report, which the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)
publishes once a year, contains annual averages, monthly
indexes, and relative importance data for 1978 for Producer
Price Indexes of all stage-of-processing groupings, commod­
ity groupings, durability-of-product groupings, and selected
Standard Industrial Classification industries and census
product classes. Lists of items added, dropped, or reclassi­
fied in July 1978 and January 1979 are included in this
report, as are tables presenting 1978 data for special
commodity groupings, railroad freight, refined petroleum
products by region, and bituminous coal by region.
This report also contains for the first time test data

Summary of Changes in the
Producer Price Index Sample,
July 1978 and January 1979

Changes in the sample of commodities used to calcu­
late Producer Price Indexes are made each year when the
January index is released in February and again when the
July index is released in August. Sample revisions are
designed, within the fixed weight concept, to improve
primary market coverage and to account for changes in
production and marketing patterns.
Additions and deletions are presented under the heading
“Sample Changes for Producer Price Indexes by Major
Commodity Group, July 1978 and January 1979.” Specifi­
cations for new commodities are listed in tables 1A and
IB. The number of changes in July 1978 and January
1979 by major commodity group is shown on the following
tabulation:

Major areas of change

In the stage-of-processing (SOP) category for inter­
mediate materials, supplies, and components, a major re­
classification and expansion was made for plastic products.
Probability sampling techniques were used to select the
sample of company reporters and products. The new
sample more accurately reflects the state of today’s
plastics industry. The range of commodities, and therefore
of prices, is very broad; consequently, average prices will
not be published. As a result of these sample changes, the
comprehensive index for plastic products (commodity code
07-2) was published for the first time in July 1978. The
following new commodity groupings are allocated to the
SOP category for intermediate goods: Plastic packaging
and shipping products; foamed plastic products; and

In July 1978 and January 1979,75 products were added
to the list of commodities used to calculate Producer Price
Indexes, while 83 items were dropped. As a result, the
January 1979 sample included 2,765 items, compared
with 2,773 in January 1978.
In the Industry-Sector Price Index (ISPI), indexes for
7 more 4-digit industries and 18 additional 5-digit product
classes were published for the first time in July 1978 and

January 1979. These Standard Industrial Classification
(SIC) and census codes and titles are as follows:

1

plastic parts and components for manufacturing. The
expanded plastics sample added two new commodity
groupings to the SOP category for finished consumer
goods: Disposable plastic dinnerware and tableware;
and consumer and commercial plastics, not elsewhere
classified.
A new product class for industrial safety equipment
was also introduced. Most commodity groupings in this
product class— such as respiratory protective equip­
ment, eye and face protective equipment, and protec­
tive clothing— -are allocated to the SOP grouping for
intermediate supplies. However, the commodity grouping
for mechanical power press guards is allocated to the
capital equipment component of finished goods. Also
within the capital equipment component, all motor trucks
were classified into one of two categories: Motor trucks,
10,000 lbs. GVW and under; and motor trucks, 10,001

lbs. GVW and over. Indexes for both categories were
published for the first time in July 1978.
Among finished consumer goods, particularly dura­
bles, the jewelry sample was revised extensively with
the introduction of 15 new items that represent a broad
range of costume and precious metal jewelry. The re­
vised jewelry sample also improved the SOP category
for intermediate materials for durable manufacturing,
which now includes jewelers’ materials and findings. In­
dexes for jewelry and jewelry products are now pub­
lished on a base of December 1979=100; indexes before
that month are not available. A microware oven, four
musical instruments, and a new commodity grouping
for electronic hearing aids were also added to the sample
of consumer durables. Seven items of apparel were added
to improve the category for nondurable goods other than
foods.

Relative Importance of
Components in the Producer
Price Index

appeared in each January issue of Wholesale Prices and
Price Indexes. The January 1967 issue included compre­
hensive information on the major weight revision and
commodity reclassification effective in December 1966.
Information for earlier periods was published through
1963 in annual bulletins.

Relative importance of components in the
Producer Price Index by stage of processing

Table 2 presents the relative importance of commodity
groupings in the Producer Price Index by stage of process­
ing (SOP) in December 1978, before and after the January
1979 sample change. The relative importance of a com­
ponent represents its value weight that is allocated to a
particular SOP category— finished goods, intermediate
materials, or crude materials— expressed as a percentage
of the total weight of the SOP category. Commodities at
the subproduct class (6-digit) level are assigned to SOP
indexes according to the class of customer and the amount
of processing, manufacturing, or assembling to which those
commodities are subjected before they enter the market.
The weight of each subproduct class is allocated among the
various SOP indexes in accordance with the relative
proportion of output accounted for at each level of
processing. (For a more detailed explanation, see “Brief
Explanation of Producer Price Indexes” on p. 108.)

Calculation of relative importance data

When prices are changing at different rates, a previously
published relative importance figure may be adjusted to
derive the relative importance of a given commodity or
grouping for any desired month, as illustrated in table A.
Calculated relative importance data (column 6) compared
with published data (column 7) show that this procedure
approximates the true relative importance reasonably well.
This procedure will not work, however, when there has
been a sample change and/or weight revision affecting the
specified commodity or grouping during the selected time
span. For example, the relative importance of plastic
construction products (commodity code 07-21) for Decem­
ber 1978, based on the published December 1977 relative
importance of 0.304, would be 0.283. However, because
the entire structure of plastic products (commodity code
07-2) was revised and reweighted in June 1978, the actual
December 1978 relative importance of plastic construction
products was 0.148.
Any set of commodities or groupings may be subjected
to the procedure illustrated in table A, as long as the All
Commodities data are included. This procedure reflects
relative importance changes which result from different
rates of price change among components of the All
Commodities Index. The relative importance of any item or
grouping will increase if its relative price change over a
given period is greater than the relative price change for the
All Commodities Index, but will decrease if its relative
price change is smaller. Thus, table A shows that the rela­
tive importance for meats declined from December 1975
(3.449) to December 1978 (3.188) even though meat prices
rose more than 12 percent during that interval, because
All Commodities rose nearly 22 percent over the same span.

Relative importance of commodities in the Producer
Price Index, all levels

The relative importance of any item or grouping in the
Producer Price Index (PPI) represents its value weight ex­
pressed as a percent of the total value weight for the All
Commodities Index. The relative importance figure for a
given commodity represents the value of shipments of that
commodity plus the shipment values of unpriced commod­
ities whose price movements are assumed to be similar to
those of the given commodity. Weights currently used to
combine price changes of individual commodities in the
PPI sample are based on shipment values in the 1972
industrial censuses, adjusted for price change between the
weight date (1972) and the specified date.
Table 3 shows the relative importance of items and
groupings in December 1978 before and after the January
1979 sample change.1 Relative importance data and
descriptions of sample changes each year were published in
annual supplements of Wholesale Prices and Price Indexes
starting in 1972. The 1976 supplement included relative
importance data reflecting the major weight revision of
December 1975, when 1972 shipment values were
substituted as weights for 1963 shipment values. From
January 1964 through January 1971, information on
annual sample changes and relative importance data

Divide the December 1978 index by the December 1975
Index and multiply the quotient by 100.
b Multiply the published relative importance (col. 3) by its
relative price change (col. 4) and divide by 100.

C Divide the product for each commodity (col. 5) by the value
for the All Commodities Index (121.71), i.e., adjust the value so
that the All Commodities Index equals 100.
d See table 3.

The steps for combining items are: Step (1) Adjust the
published December relative importance for the commodi­
ties to be included in the special index to total 1.00000. A
new set of relative importance figures is required each time
a major weight revision was introduced or minor adjust­
ments were made due to a sample change. Such changes
effective in January of any year are introduced by linking
in the previous December.
Step (2) Relative importance data are appropriate
weights for combining indexes only when the index base
is the same as the period to which the respective impor­
tance data (weights) refer. Therefore, indexes must be
rebased if the published base does not conform with the
relative importance data to be used to combine the
indexes for specified periods. Indexes may be rebased by
dividing them by the index for the desired base period and
multiplying by 100. All indexes must be on the same
base to make such a conversion.
Step (3) The relative weights (step 1) are multiplied
by the indexes (step 2), which are price relatives on the
same base as the corresponding weights. The sum of the
products is the special combined index on a specified base.
Step (4) For comparability throughout the period,
indexes from step 3 must be converted to a December
1954 base, the starting point for the index. Indexes already
on this base were rounded to one decimal place (step 3-b,
columns 1 and 2). The December 1957 index (December
1954=100) was multiplied by the indexes on a December
1957 base (step 3-b, column 3); the December 1960 index
(December 1954=100) by the index on a December 1960
base, and so forth until all of the indexes are chained
together. Each product in the chaining process is divided
by 100 and rounded to one decimal place.

Calculation of special indexes

Users of the PPI are not limited to groupings for which
index numbers are published because special purpose
indexes can be constructed from published data. Relative
importance figures can be used as weights to combine
relative changes in prices of selected commodities or to
exclude one or more components from a published group­
ing index as illustrated in tables B and C. All major weight
revisions must be taken into account. Therefore, the
number of “links” depends on the number of weight
revisions between the starting date and the ending date.
Changes in classification also must be taken into account
when commodity groupings are combined. In January
1967, the classification structure of the PPI which had been
in effect since January 1952 was revised somewhat. Because
of these changes, new relative importance figures based on
the regrouped indexes were calculated for I960.2 There­
fore, considerable caution must be exercised when com­
bining group indexes prior to January 1967. In those cases
where the composition of a group index has been affected
by reclassification, individual items must be combined.
Table B shows a procedure for combining items into a
special grouping; table C, how an item may be excluded
from a grouping.
Assume that the index for other grains does not exist
and that you want to construct a special index for selected
Decembers to include all major weight revisions since 1954.
Four major weight revisions between 1954 and 1978 re­
quire “linking” in December 1957, 1960, 1966, and 1975.
Any item having minor weight adjustments from sample
changes in other years must be considered. Linking prevents
the weight change from affecting the level of the index
when new weights are introduced. In this process, the
percent change in price from December forward, computed
on the new weights, is applied to the index for December
computed on the old weights.

Indexes on the December 19S4 base are converted to
a 1967 base by dividing each index by the average for the
year 1967, and multiplying the result by 100. The indexes
may differ slightly from published indexes because of
rounding.
The steps necessary to exclude an item are essentially
the same as those outlined for combining items. Table C

Constructing special stage-of-processing indexes

Since early 1978, BLS has emphasized stage-ofprocessing (SOP) indexes for measuring price changes at
the primary market level, rather than traditional commod­
ity grouping indexes such as the All Commodities Index.

SOP index. Suppose two manufacturing firms in a long
term sales contract decided to include an escalation clause
to provide for variations in the cost of raw materials other
than those produced in the agricultural sector. They wanted
a special index for crude nonfood materials less farm
products to be the basis for determining the escalation
from December 1977 to December 1978. (In fact, such
an index is officially published already: Crude materials
for further processing, excluding crude foodstuffs and
feedstuffs, plant and animal fibers, oilseeds, and leaf
tobacco. This index, shown in table 4A of this Supple­
ment, will be used to check the results of this procedure.)

One main advantage of SOP indexes is that they partly
alleviate multiple-counting of price changes as materials
are processed into finished goods.
A method similar to the one previously discussed may
be used to construct special stage-of-processing indexes.
Allocations of commodity groupings to SOP categories are
made at the subproduct class (6-digit code) level; a particu­
lar subproduct class may be allocated to more than one
SOP category. Therefore, to construct special SOP indexes,
SOP relative importance figures such as those in table 2
of this Supplement must be used.
The following example shows how to construct a special



138.04

Index converted to 1967*100 base by dividing indexes on December 1964
base by average for 1967 and multiplying by 100

Column A in table D shows the relative importance
figures for December 1977 for the indexes concerned.
(These were obtained from table 2 of the 1978 Supple­
ment.) The desired special index consists of the crude
nonfood materials index minus the eight subproduct
classes within the major commodity group for farm
products (commodity code 01). In column B, the relative
importance figures are normalized, so that crude nonfood
materials equals 100, and the other indexes are correspond­
ingly adjusted to remain proportionate. The relative impor­
tance for the special index equals 100 minus the sum of the
relative importances of the eight excluded subproduct
classes. Columns C and D show the index values based on
1967=100 for December 1977 and December 1978,
respectively.
Under this procedure as in the one previously described,
indexes are rebased to coincide with the month from which
the relative importance figures were derived (in this case,
December 1977). Column E shows the same indexes as
column D, based on December 1977 instead of 1967.
Indexes in column E are derived by dividing the indexes
in column D by indexes in column C and multiplying

by 100. The normalized relative importance percentages
in column B are multiplied by the rebased index values in
column E to obtain the weighted index values in column
F. As in column B, the sum of the values for the eight
subproduct classes in column F is subtracted from the value
for crude nonfood materials. The remainder is then divided
by the calculated relative importance for the special index
in column B. This result is the special index for crude
nonfood materials excluding farm products, based on
December 1977=100. The value 114.9 matches the PPI for
crude materials excluding foodstuffs and feedstuffs, plant
and animal fibers, oilseeds, and leaf tobacco, which has
also been rebased to December 1977=100 for this example.
Thus, the accuracy of this procedure is verified.
This procedure cannot be used to derive special SOP
indexes before December 1977 because SOP relative
importance data were not published regularly before then.
As noted, calculating special historical indexes requires
linking indexes whenever a major weight revision occurs.
No SOP relative importance data have been published for
December 1975, when the last major weight revision
took place.

Price Indexes for
Railroad Freight

Railroad freight price indexes, which were originally
released in June 1975, are published each month in
Producer Prices and Price Indexes. These indexes are
based on a probability sample of actual shipments. The
prices are derived from tariffs published by the various
bureaus, agents, and/or railroads which are in effect on




the 15th of the month. These indexes are calculated from a
Laspeyres fixed-weighted index formula and are available
back to January 1969. For a more detailed description
and the historical data, see “Introducing Indexes for
Railroad Freight,” Monthly Labor Review, June 1975.

Relative Importance of Product
Classes in the Industry-Sector
Price Index

Table 11 shows the relative importance of product
classes in the Industry-Sector Price Index in December 1978
after the sample change effective January 1979. The
relative importance of a product class represents its basic
value weight expressed as a percent of the total industry




weight. The basic value weight currently used is the 1972
value of shipments as reported in the industrial censuses,
adjusted for price change between the weight date (1972)
and the specified date.

Brief Explanation of
Producer Price Indexes

Producer Price Indexes measure average changes in
prices received in primary markets of the United States
by producers of commodities in all stages of processing.
These data were previously presented as the Wholesale Price
Index. The name “Producer Price Indexes” is now being
used to reflect more accurately the coverage of the data.
The sample used for calculating these indexes continues to
contain nearly 2,800 commodities and about 10,000
quotations selected to represent the movement of prices
of all commodities produced in the manufacturing, agricul­
ture, forestry, fishing, mining, gas and electricity, and
public utilities sectors. The universe includes all com­
modities produced or imported for sale in commercial
transactions in primary markets in the United States.
Producer Price Indexes can be organized by stage of
processing or by commodity. The stage of processing
structure organizes products by degree of fabrication
(i.e., finished goods, intermediate or semifinished goods,
and crude materials). The commodity structure organizes
products by similarity of end-use or material composition.
Finished goods are commodities that will not undergo
further processing and are ready for sale to the ultimate
user, either an individual consumer or a business firm.
Capital equipment (formerly called producer finished
FINISHED GOODS




goods) includes commodities such as motor trucks, farm
equipment, and machine tools. Finished consumer goods
include foods and other types of goods eventually pur­
chased by retailers and used by consumers. Consumer foods
include unprocessed foods such as eggs and fresh vegetables,
as well as processed foods such as bakery products and
meats. Other finished consumer goods include durables
such as automobiles, household furniture, and jewelry,
and nondurables such as apparel and gasoline.
Intermediate materials, supplies, and components are
commodities that have been processed but require further
processing before they become finished goods. Examples
of such semifinished goods include flour, cotton yarns,
steel mill products, belts and belting, lumber, liquefied
petroleum gas, paper boxes, and motor vehicle parts.
Crude materials for further processing include products
entering the market for the first time which have not been
manufactured or fabricated but will be processed before
becoming finished goods. Scrap materials are also included.
Crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs include items such as
grains and livestock. Examples of crude nonfood materials
include raw cotton, crude petroleum, natural gas, hides
and skins, and iron and steel scrap.

CRUDE MATERIALS

spondents are asked to provide net prices or to provide
all applicable discounts. BLS attempts to base Producer
Price Indexes on actual transaction prices; however, list
or book prices are used if transaction prices are not
available. Most prices are obtained directly from pro­
ducing companies on a voluntary and confidential basis,
but some prices are taken from trade publications or
from other Government agencies. Prices generally are
reported for the Tuesday of the week containing the 13th
day of the month.
In calculating Producer Price Indexes, price changes for
the various commodities are averaged together with weights
representing their importance in the total net selling value
of all commodities as of 1972. The detailed data are
aggregated to obtain indexes for stage of processing
groupings, commodity groupings, durability of product
groupings, and a number of special composite groupings.
Each index measures price changes from a reference
period which equals 100.0 (usually 1967, as designated by
the Office of Management and Budget). An increase of 85
percent from the reference period in the Finished Goods
Price Index, for example, is shown as 185.0. This change
can also be expressed in dollars, as follows: “The price
of a representative sample of finished goods sold in
primary markets in the United States has risen from $100
in 1967 to $185.”

For analysis of general price trends, stage of processing
indexes are more useful than commodity grouping indexes.
This is because commodity grouping indexes sometimes
produce exaggerated or misleading signals of price changes
by reflecting the same price movement through various
stages of processing. For example, suppose that a price
rise for steel scrap results in an increase in the price of
steel sheet and then an advance in prices of automo­
biles produced from that steel. The All Commodities
Price Index and the Industrial Commodities Price Index
would reflect the same price movement three times— once
for the steel scrap, once for the steel sheet, and once for
the automobiles. This multiple counting occurs because the
weighting structure for the All Commodities Index uses
the total shipment values for all commodities at all stages
of processing. On the other hand, the Finished Goods
Price Index would reflect the change in automobile prices,
the Intermediate Materials Price Index would reflect the
steel sheet price change, and the Crude Materials Price
Index would reflect the rise in the price of steel scrap.
(See illustration on p. 108).
To the extent possible, prices used in calculating
Producer Price Indexes apply to the first significant com­
mercial transaction in the United States, from the produc­
tion or central marketing point. Price data are generally
collected monthly, primarily by mail questionnaire. Re-

A Note about Calculating
Index Changes
Movements of price indexes from one month to another
are usually expressed as percent changes rather than changes
in index points because index point changes are affected
by the level of the index in relation to its base period,
while percent changes are not. The following example
illustrates the computation of index point and percent
changes. (See box.)
Percent changes for 3-month and 6-month periods are
expressed as annual rates that are computed according to
the standard formula for compound growth rates. These
data indicate what the percent change would be if the
current rate were maintained for a 12-month period.

A Note on Seasonally
Adjusted Data
Because price data are used for different purposes by
different groups, the Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes
seasonally adjusted as well as unadjusted changes each
month.
For analyzing general price trends in the economy,
seasonally adjusted data usually are preferred because
they eliminate the effect of changes that normally occur
at about the same time and in about the same magnitude
every year— such as price movements resulting from
normal weather patterns, regular production and marketing
cycles, model changeovers, seasonal discounts, and holidays.
For this reason, seasonally adjusted data more clearly reveal
the underlying cyclical trends. Seasonally adjusted data are
subject to revision when seasonal factors are revised each
year.
The unadjusted data are of primary interest to users
who need information which can be related to the actual
dollar values of transactions. Individuals requiring this
information include marketing specialists, purchasing agents,
budget and cost analysts, contract specialists, and com­
modity traders. Unadjusted data generally are used in
escalating contracts such as purchase agreements or real
estate leases.
