Price Movements
April 1978
Summary

Explanation of Producer Price Index," page 78.) The
index for finished consumer goods excluding foods advanced 1.3 percent over the month, principally because a
steep rise in jewelry prices helped to raise the consumer
durables index 2.8 percent (table B). The index for
capital equipment (formerly called producer finished goods)
rose 0.6 percent, about the same as in most recent months.
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials
rose 0.5 percent in April, somewhat less than the increases
registered during the first 3 months of this year. (Intermediate materials are semifinished commodities which have
been processed but which require further processing before
they become finished goods.) The index for crude materials increased 2.5 percent over the month, the seventh
consecutive monthly advance. (Crude materials are products
entering the market for the first time which have not
been manufactured or fabricated but which will be processed further before becoming intermediate or finished
goods.)

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved
up 1.3 percent from March to April on a seasonally adjusted
basis, considerably more than the increases recorded in
most recent months. This acceleration was due to larger
advances for finished consumer foods and consumer durables, especially jewelry (table A). More than one-fourth of
the April rise in the Finished Goods Price Index was
caused by jewelry prices. Prices of commodities at the
intermediate (semifinished) stage of processing rose somewhat less than in March. Prices of crude materials increased
more in April than in March because of advances for a
broad range of crude food products.
Among finished goods, prices for finished consumer
foods rose 1.9 percent in April, following increases of 0.8
and 2.9 percent in March and February, respectively.
(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

Data for November and December 1977 have been revised
to reflect the availability of late reports and corrections by
respondents. For this reason, some figures shown above and else-

Be f Ore seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index
for Finished Goods increased 1.3 percent to 191.4 (1967=
100). Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index was up
7.0 percent. The finished consumer foods index rose
8.5 percent from April 1977 to April 1978, the capital
equipment index was up 7.6 percent, and the index for
finished consumer goods excluding foods was 5.9 percent
higher than a year earlier. The intermediate materials price
index increased 5.6 percent over the past year, and the
Producer Price Index for crude materials was up 5.7
percent.

acceleration in April was caused by a sharp rise in the
index for jewelry, which partly reflected the increase in
gold prices during late 1977 and early 1978. Prices also
rose more than in March for passenger cars, floor coverings,
household furniture, and household appliances.
The index for consumer nondurable goods other than
foods rose 0.4 percent over the month, about the same as
in each month since last October. The largest increases in
April occurred for leather footwear, rubber footwear, tires
and tubes, and sanitary papers and health products.
Prices for gasoline and home heating oil turned up following
2 months of decreases.

Finished goods

Capital equipment The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment advanced 0.6 percent in April, the same as the
average monthly increase during the past 12 months. Some
of the largest price increases in April were registered for
railroad equipment, industrial process furnaces and ovens,
construction machinery and equipment, and machine tools.
Prices of commercial furniture and mining machinery and
equipment moved up much less than in March.

Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
advanced 1.6 percent in April. Prices rose more than in the
prior month for both finished consumer foods and for
finished consumer goods other than foods.
The index for finished consumer foods advanced 1.9
percent from March to April, more than in March (0.8
percent) but less than in February (2.9 percent). Prices
for processed poultry and pork turned up in April after
declining in March. Fresh and dried fruits and vegetables,
dairy products, and miscellaneous processed foods rose
more than in March. Roasted coffee prices fell much less
than in most recent months. On the other hand, prices
for beef and veal and processed fruits and vegetables
continued to increase but less than in March, and milled
rice and refined vegetable oil prices turned down after
rising in March.
The index for consumer durables rose 2.8 percent in
April, following a 0.6 percent rise in March. Most of the

Intermediate materials
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components rose 0.5 percent from March to
April after seasonal adjustment, following increases of 0.8
percent in March and 0.9 percent in both February and
January. The April deceleration was due to prices for intermediate foods and feeds, which edged up 0.1 percent after
advancing sharply in each of the first 3 months of 1978.
Most of this slowdown was caused by a reversal in prices
of manufactured animal feeds, which fell in April after a
2

rapid upward movement during the first quarter of the
year. On the other hand, prices of flour and confectionery
materials rose much more from March to April than
they did in the entire first quarter.
The index for intermediate materials excluding materials used in food manufacturing and manufactured animal
feeds moved up 0.5 percent over the month, the same as in
March but less than in either February or January.
Prices advanced more than in March for steel mill products,
foundry and forge shop products, motor vehicle parts,
paper, and cement. After declining in the previous month,
prices were higher in April for asphalt roofing, gypsum
products, mixed fertilizers, industrial chemicals, and diesel
fuel. Prices of residual fuel and plywood fell less than in
either of the 2 preceding months. On the other hand,
prices decreased in April after rising in March for liquefied
petroleum gas, coke, electric power, nonferrous mill shapes,
and glass containers. Prices rose less than in March for
building paper and board, paperboard, millwork, and
gray fabrics.

seasonally adjusted basis. This was more than the 1.6
percent increase in March but less than the 3.2 percent
advance in February. Prices of crude foodstuffs and
feedstuffs moved up twice as much in April (3.7 percent)
as in March (1.8 percent). Prices for grains and fresh and
dried fruits and vegetables rose much more than in the
previous month, and live poultry and raw sugar prices turned
up following March decreases. On the other hand, prices
of oilseeds and cattle rose much less in April than in the
preceding month. Fluid milk and hog prices turned down
after increasing in March, and green coffee prices declined
for the fourth consecutive month.
The index for crude nonfood materials increased 0.9
percent over the month, following rises of 1.5 percent in
March and 1.0 percent in February. Raw cotton prices
declined after 3 consecutive months of rapid advances.
Wastepaper prices fell for the third consecutive month
after increasing sharply from October through January.
Prices for hides and skins also decreased in April. On the
other hand, prices for both nonferrous and ferrous scrap
moved up in April following declines in the previous month.
Among crude fuels, coal prices rose much more than in
recent months, and natural gas increased nearly as much
as in March.

Crude materials
The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing was up 2.5 percent from March to April on a

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
therelativeproportion 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
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.
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. Consumer foods include
unprocessed foods such as eggs and fresh vegetables, as well
FINISHED GOODS




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.
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

INTERMEDIATE MATERIALS,
SUPPLIES AND COMPONENTS

78

CRUDE MATERIALS

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.)
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.
