Changes in the Sample for
Producer Price Indexes

Changes in the commodity sample used to calculate
producer price indexes were made in July 1979. Within
the fixed weight concept, sample changes are designed
to improve primary market coverage and to account for
changes in production and marketing patterns.
In January 1980, there were no changes. Specifica­
tions for new commodities are listed in table 1. The
number of changes by major commodity group is shown
in the following tabulation:

Eight products were added and ten products were
dropped in the list of commodities used for calculating
producer price indexes in July 1979. The sample now
includes 2,763 items, compared with 2,765 in January
1979. The principal sample changes affected the stageof-processing grouping for intermediate materials for
nondurable manufacturing as a new subproduct class
was introduced for rubber roll coverings, consisting of
graphic arts, paper mill, steel mill, and industrial roll
coverings.

Relative Importance of
Components by Stage of
Processing

The relative importance of a component of the Pro­
ducer Price Index represents the value weight that is
allocated to a particular stage-of-processing (SOP)
category—finished goods, intermediate materials, or
crude materials—expressed as a percentage of the total
weight of the SOP category. Table 2 presents the
relative importance of commodity groupings by SOP
category in December 1979.
Commodities at the subproduct class (6-digit) level
are assigned to SOP indexes according to the class of
customer and the amount of processing, manufactur­




ing, or assembling to which those commodities are sub­
jected before they enter the market. The weight-of each
subproduct class is allocated among the various SOP in­
dexes in accordance with the relative proportion of out­
put accounted for at each level of processing.
For a more detailed explanation of SOP indexes, see
“Brief Explanation of Producer Price Indexes,” on
p. 118. For more information on relative importance
data and an explanation of how to construct special
SOP indexes, see Producer Prices and Price Indexes,
Supplement 1979, Data for 1978, pp. 11-13.

weight of the SOP category.

Relative Importance of
Commodities, All Levels

The relative importance of a commodity on a specific
date represents the value of shipments of the commodi­
ty, plus the value of unpriced commodities assumed to
have price movements similar to those of the priced
items, expressed as a percentage of the All Commodities
Index. Table 3 shows the relative importance of items
and groupings in December 1979.1
The basic value weights currently used to combine
price changes of individual commodities in the sample
are based on shipment values as reported in the 1972 in­
dustrial censuses, adjusted for price change between the
weight date (1972) and the specified date.
For a description of the procedures for calculating




relative importance data and a method for regrouping
component indexes into weighted special indexes, see
the previous supplement, Producer Prices and Price In­
dexes, Supplement 1979, Data for 1978, pp. 10 and 11.
‘ Relative importance figures for earlier periods are published in an­
nual bulletin, Wholesale Prices and Price Indexes, through 1963. A
major weight revision in December 1966 and additions and deletions
in December of each year are published in the final monthly report,
Wholesale Prices and Price Indexes, for each subsequent January
through 1971. Since 1971, data are published in annual supplements
of this report.

Test Data for the Producer
Price Index Revision

(3) Net output values o f shipments are used as
weights in preparing the index. Net output
values refer to the value of shipments leav­
ing the industry. In contrast, the weights us­
ed in the current ppi’s and ispi’s are gross
shipment values, which include shipments
within an industry. The resulting multiple
counting of price changes is one of the ma­
jor defects of the current indexes. The cur­
rent stage-of-processmg indexes partially
correct this defect, but the new indexes con­
sistently correct it at all levels.
(4) Increased emphasis is being given to obtaining
actual transaction prices at the time o f ship­
ment. Although it has been a general objec­
tive of the current program to obtain trans­
action prices, they have not been obtained
for significant portions of the index. In ad­
dition, some products in the current ppi in­
tentionally have been priced at order prices
rather than shipment prices.
(5) Probability sampling was used to select the firms
to be asked to report prices. As a result,
firms of all sizes are included in the sample.
In addition, within the firm, the individual
items to be priced and the terms of the trans­
action were chosen using probability
techniques. In the current ppi, major com­
panies selected on a judgment basis are ask­
ed to report prices for volume-selling items
under “typical” transaction terms.

Table 13 shows test data for 1979 from the pilot
survey for the Producer Price Index revision. The pilot
survey was conducted to test methods and procedures
for a comprehensive, industry-by-industry revision to
improve the indexes. The revision is scheduled for com­
pletion in 1985.
The four industries covered in the pilot survey are:
Soybean oil mills (SIC 2075), newspaper printing and
publishing (SIC 2711), concrete products other than
block and brick (SIC 3272), and household laundry
equipment (SIC 3633). These industries were selected
because they offered a wide range of pricing problems
on which to test the new techniques. Indexes covering
some of these same industries will continue to be
calculated under the old program.
These pilot survey indexes differ from indexes in the
current Producer Price Index in a number of important
respects:
(1) They are industry-based indexes. The entire
output of each industry is sampled,in­
cluding secondary production and miscellaneous
receipts. The current Producer Price Indexes
are based on a sample of major products.
Even the Industry-Sector Price Indexes
(iSPi’s) are derived from these product in­
dexes. The current ispi’s do not price
miscellaneous receipts, and the prices for
primary and secondary production are ob­
tained from any producer of the product
even if that producer does not belong to the
industry. The newly published pilot survey
indexes are derived from prices supplied
strictly by producers within the industry. As
a result, the pilot product indexes apply only
to the production within the industry. After
all mining and manufacturing industries are
covered by the revision, product indexes will
be constructed covering all production of
the product.
(2) These new indexes are classified in accordance
with the Standard Industrial Classification
(SIC) system and incorporate most features
of the Census of Manufactures product code
extension of the SIC. The coding will make
the data easier to use in conjunction with
other industry-oriented economic data.




Since this is a pilot survey, a number of changes will
be introduced as the full-scale survey is put in place.
These changes include the following:
(1) Greater product detail will generally be available
because of larger sample sizes and increased
capabilities to combine product areas that
are not publishable by themselves. The
5-digit product class indexes, which cannot
npw be calculated, will be produced.
(2) Ultimately, the survey will cover all shipments
by all 493 industries in mining and manufac­
turing. The present ppi’s cover only about
50 percent of this value; the pilot survey
covers about 2 percent of it.
111

(3) Improved calculation techniques will be in­
troduced, including the use of Census of
Manufactures shipment data to weight the
7-digit product indexes to higher levels. The
pilot indexes rely on the estimated relative
importance of products based on shipment
data derived from the survey itself.




(4) Estimates of sampling error will be published.

and methodology of the Producer Price Index revision,

Change,” by John F. Early, in the April 1978 issue of

Price Indexes for Railroad
Freight

Price indexes for railroad freight are based on a prob­
ability sample of actual shipments. The prices are
derived from tariffs in effect on the 15th of the month
as published by various bureaus, agents, and railroads.
The indexes are calculated from a Laspeyres fixedweighted index formula. Data are available back to
January 1969. For a more detailed description, see “ In­
troducing Indexes for Railroad Freight” , Monthly
Labor Review, June 1975, and “New Sample for the
Railroad Freight Index,” Producer Prices and Price In­
dexes, June 1979.
Table 14 shows 1979 data for total railroad freight
and selected groups. Month-to-month percent changes
are shown in table 15, and standard deviations for these
changes are presented in table 16. Standard deviations
for the indexes themselves are not currently available;
however, a methodology is under development.
The indexes and percent changes published in tables
14 and 15 are estimates based on a sample of freight
transactions. If a different sample had been selected, a
different set of estimates would have been derived. The




standard deviation attempts to measure the dispersion
of the estimates associated with the various possible
samples. A large standard deviation means that there is
a high probability that a different sample would pro­
duce a very different result; a small standard deviation
indicates a low probability that a different sample
would produce a very different result. It is customary to
create a 95-percent confidence interval for each estimate
by adding twice the standard deviation to the estimate
(the upper limit) and by subtracting twice the standard
deviation from the estimate (the lower limit). For exam­
ple, in table 15 the estimated percent changes for the
total railroad freight index for December 1979 was 0.2
percent; the corresponding estimated standard deviation
from table 16 equalled 0.07. Therefore, the 95-percent
confidence interval for the December 1979 percent
change for total railroad freight equalled 0.2 plus or
minus 0.14; i.e., between 0.06 and 0.34. Under ap­
propriate assumptions, estimates from 95 percent of the
possible samples will be between the upper and the
lower limit.

Technical Notes

Crude materials for further processing include prod­
ucts entering the market for the first time which have
not been manufactured or fabricated but will be pro­
cessed before becoming finished goods. Scrap materials
are also included. Crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs in­
clude 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.
For analysis of general price trends, stage-ofprocessing 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 ex­
ample, suppose that a price rise for steel scrap results in
an increase in the price of steel sheet and then an ad­
vance in prices of automobiles 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 struc­
ture for the All Commodities Index uses the total ship­
ment values for all commodities at all stages of process­
ing. On the other hand, the Finished Goods Price Index
would reflect the change in automobile prices, the In­
termediate 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 il­
lustration.)
To the extent possible, prices used in calculating pro­
ducer price indexes apply to the first significant com­
mercial transaction in the United States, from the pro­
duction or central marketing point. Price data are
generally collected monthly, primarily by mail question­
naire. Respondents 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 direct­
ly from producing companies on a voluntary and con­
fidential 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.

Brief Explanation of Producer
Indexes Price
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 in­
dexes 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, agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining,
gas and electricity, and public utilities sectors. The
universe includes all commodities 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
goods) includes commodities such as motor trucks,
farm equipment, and machine tools. Finished consumer
goods include foods and other types of goods eventually
purchased by retailers and used by consumers. Con­
sumer 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 fur­
ther processing before they become finished goods. Ex­
amples of such semifinished goods include flour, cotton
yarns, steel mill products, belts and belting, lumber, liq­
uefied petroleum gas, paper boxes, and motor vehicle
parts.

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-ofprocessing groupings, commodity groupings, durability
of product groupings, and a number of special com4
posite 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 125 percent from the reference
period in the Finished Goods Price Index, for example,
is shown as 225.0. This change can also be expressed in
dollars, as follows: “The price of a representative sam­
ple of finished goods sold in primary markets in the
United States has risen from $100 in 1967 to $225.”

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
box shows the computation of index point and percent
changes.
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.
Seasonally Adjusted
and Unadjusted Data
Because price data are used for different purposes by
different groups, the Bureau of Labor Statistics publish­
ed 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 dis­
counts, and holidays, For this reason, seasonally ad­
justed 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 commodity traders. Unadjusted data generally are
used in escalating contracts such as purchase agreements
or real estate leases.
