Price Movements
March 1978
Summary

of processing also moderated, largely because of slower
advances for steel and construction materials. Finished
and crude nonfood products increased about the same as
in most recent months.

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved up
0.6 percent from February to March on a seasonally
adjusted basis. This was considerably less than the 1.1
percent advance in February but was about the same as in
each month during the October-to-January period (table A).
The Finished Goods Price Index reflects only changes in
prices received by producers for goods that are in the
form in which they eventually are sold to final users. (See
"Brief Explanation of Producer Price Indexes," page 78.)
Prices of food products continued their rise begun late
last year. Food items at the finished and crude stages of
processing, however, rose much less in March than in
February. This slowdown was partly caused by an improvement in supplies of some items that had been limited
earlier by severe winter weather. Price increases for nonfood commodities at the intermediate (semifinished) stage

Among finished goods, prices for consumer foods rose
0.8 percent, much less than in February. The indexes for
other consumer goods and finished producer goods moved
up about as much as in recent months (table B). The index
for intermediate materials rose 0.8 percent, nearly as
much as in February and January. (Intermediate materials
are semifinished commodities that have been processed but
require further processing before they become finished
goods.) The Producer Price Index for crude materials
increased 1.6 percent over the month—the sixth consecutive monthly advance, although smaller than those recorded
in February and January. (Crude materials are products
entering the market for the first time which have not been

doughs, and milled rice. Confectionery end products
increased after no change in February. Prices for roasted
coffee fell less in March than in the previous month.
The consumer durables index increased 0.6 percent in
March, more than in February (0.3 percent) and nearly
as much as in January (0.7 percent). Jewelry prices
turned up following a decrease in February, and prices for
household appliances rose much more in March than in the
preceding month. Increases for passenger cars, mobile
homes, and floor coverings were about the same as in
February. Prices moved up more slowly than in February
for home electronic equipment and household furniture.
Prices for consumer nondurable goods other than foods
rose 0.3 percent over the month, about the same as in
each month since October. Higher prices were recorded for
cosmetics and other toilet preparations, pharmaceutical
preparations, sanitary papers and health products, alcoholic
beverages, and luggage and small leather goods. Prices were
lower for gasoline, home heating oil, and tires and tubes.

manufactured or fabricated but will be processed before
becoming intermediate or finished goods.)
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index for
Finished Goods increased 0.4 percent to 189.0 (1967=100).
Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index was up 6.5
percent. The finished producer goods index rose 7.6
percent from March 1977 to March 1978, the consumer
foods index was up 7.2 percent, and the index for
consumer finished goods excluding foods was 5.3 percent
higher than a year earlier. The Producer Price Index for
intermediate materials increased 6.0 percent over the past
year, and the crude materials price index was up 5.1 percent.
Finished goods
Consumer finished goods. The Producer Price Index for
consumer finished goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
moved up much less in March (0.5 percent) than in
February (1.3 percent), principally because of a deceleration
in price increases for consumer foods. On the other hand,
durable good prices rose more in March than in the
preceding month, and prices for nondurable goods increased
about the same as in February.
The index for consumer foods rose 0.8 percent over the
month, following advances of 2.9 and 1.1 percent in
February and January, respectively. Prices turned down
after increasing in the previous month for pork, processed
poultry, refined sugar in consumer-size packages, and
fresh fruits. Prices rose less in March than in February for
beef and veal, eggs, and dairy products. On the other
hand, prices turned up in March after February declines
for vegetable oil end products, flour base mixes and




Finished producer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished producer goods advanced 0.6 percent in March, the
same as the average monthly increase during the past 12
months. Some of the largest price increases were registered
for food products, machinery, commercial furniture, mining
machinery and equipment, machine shop products, machine
tools, and industrial material handling equipment.
Intermediate materials
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components rose 0.8 percent over the month

after seasonal adjustment, about the same as in February
and January but much more than the changes in any of the
8 months prior to that.
The index for intermediate materials, excluding materials used in food manufacturing and manufactured animal
feeds moved up 0.5 percent over the month, less than the
February and January increases. The March deceleration
was largely caused by smaller increases for steel mill
products and construction-related materials such as millwork, fabricated structural metal products, and concrete
products. Prices of coke, synthetic rubber, and motor
vehicle parts also moved up less than in February. Prices for
inedible fats and oils declined slightly in March after 5
months of steep increases, and prices for residual fuel and
diesel fuel also moved down. On the other hand, precious
metals, some aluminum products, electric power, and gray
fabrics rose more than in the preceding month.
The index for intermediate foods and feeds (a composite
index introduced this month, combining stage-of-processing
categories for intermediate materials for food manufacturing
and manufactured animal feeds) advanced 5.4 percent in
March, seasonally adjusted, considerably more than the
increases of 2.1 and 1.8 percent in February and January,
respectively. Prices of soybean meal, crude vegetable oils,
flour, and confectionery materials turned up following
February declines. Prices of refined sugar used in food
manufacturing, however, followed the reverse pattern,
falling in March after rising in the previous month.




The Producer Price Index for crude materials for
further processing moved up 1.6 percent in March, seasonally
adjusted, less than the 3.2 and 2.0 percent advances
registered in February and January, respectively. The
slowdown was due to smaller price rises for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs, which rose 1.8 percent in March
after much larger increases in the first 2 months of the
year. Prices of hay, raw cane sugar, and live poultry moved
down following several months of generally rising prices,
and green coffee decreased for the third consecutive
month. Hog prices continued to rise but much less than in
recent months. On the other hand, prices for grains, fluid
milk, and cattle rose more than in the previous month;
cocoa bean and oilseed prices turned up after February
declines.
Crude materials other than crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs rose 1.5 percent over the month, somewhat more than
in February but about the same as in January. Prices of
natural gas, crude petroleum, and plant and animal fibers
advanced more than in most recent months. The coal
index rose nearly as much as in the preceding month,
when it recorded the largest increase since February 1977.
On the other hand, nonferrous scrap prices fell for the
first time since last September, and wastepaper declined
much more than in February.

Commodities at the subproduct class (6-digit) level are assigned to stage of processing (SOP) indexes according
to 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 consumed at each level of processing. SOP allocations are placed within parentheses
for those commodity groupings whose subproduct classes are not uniformly divided among different stage of

Brief Explanation of Producer Price Indexes
such as eggs and fresh vegetables, as well as processed
foods such as bakery products and meats. Other consumer
finished 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.
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 automobiles
produced from that steel. The All Commodities Wholesale
Price Index and the Industrial Commodities Price Index

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, 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.
Producer finished goods, frequently called capital equipment or producers' durable equipment, include commodities such as motor trucks, farm equipment, and machine
tools. Consumer finished goods include foods and other
types of goods eventually purchased by retailers and used
by consumers. Consumer foods include unprocessed foods

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 WPI 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.)
To the extent possible, prices used in calculating
Producer Price Indexes apply to the first significant commercial transaction in the United States, from the production or central marketing point. Price data are generally
collected monthly, primarily by mail questionnaire. 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 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."

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.)

Index Percent Change

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
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 commodity traders. Unadjusted data generally are used in
escalating contracts such as purchase agreements or real
estate leases.

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.
