Price Movements
August 1978
Summary

so far this year. (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 85.
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index
for Finished Goods moveu down 0.3 percent to 195.3
(1967=100). Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index
rose 7.7 percent. The finished consumer foods index was
up 8.4 percent from August 1977 to August 1978, the
index for finished consumer goods other than foods
increased 7.1 percent, and the capital equipment index
was 8.1 percent higher than a year earlier. The Producer
Price Index for intermediate goods rose 6.8 percent over
the year, and crude materials prices advanced 15.6
percent.

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods edged
down 0.1 percent from July to August on a seasonally
adjusted basis. The August decline was the result of lower
food prices and followed increases of 0.5 percent in July
and 0.7 percent in both and June and May (table A).
Prices for intermediate (semifinished) goods increased
about as much as in most recent months. Crude materials prices decreased for the second consecutive month,
following a period of sharply rising prices from September
1977 through June 1978.
In August, finished consumer food prices fell 1.5
percent, the largest decline in 2 years. The index for
finished consumer goods other than foods moved up 0.4
percent over the month, considerably less than the 1
percent rise in July (table B). The deceleration was caused
by slower price increases for both consumer durables and
nondurables excluding foods. Prices for capital equipment
rose about as much as in July but less than in other months

in this report may differ f r o m those previously reported,
r* revised.

Data for April 1978 have been revised to reflect the
availability of late reports and corrections by respondents. For
this reason, some of the figures shown above and elsewhere

The index for consumer nondurable goods other than
foods rose 0.3 percent from July to August, compared with
increases of 0.6 percent in each of the 2 preceding months.
Prices for tobacco products increased much less than in
either July or June. After advancing in July, prices for
apparel, sanitary papers and health products, finished
lubricants, and prescription drugs were virtually unchanged
in August. On the other hand, prices fell much less than in
July for tires and tubes, and gasoline prices turned up
after declining in July. Alcoholic beverages and leather
footwear increased more than in the previous month.
Capital equipment. The Producer Price Index for
capital equipment moved up 0.4 percent in August, about
the same as in July (0.5 percent) and somewhat less than
in June (0.8 percent). Prices were higher in August for
machine tools, hand tools, internal combustion engines,
and mining machinery.

declined 0.3 percent in August after seasonal adjustment,
the first decrease since June 1977. This index had registered
an average increase of 0.6 percent per month during the
previous 13 months. The finished consumer foods index
decreased more than in the preceding month, and the
indexes for both consumer durables and nondurables rose
less than in July.
The finished consumer foods index declined 1.5 percent
in August, following a 0.3 percent decrease in July and generally large advances in the 9 months before July. Prices
turned down sharply after rising a month earlier for processed poultry, fresh and dried fruits and vegetables, and
eggs. Prices for roasted coffee, vegetable oil end products,
and whole black pepper fell more than in July. Beef
and veal prices fell about as much as in the prior month.
On the other hand, prices for pork and dairy products
turned up after declining a month earlier. Fish prices
increased somewhat more than in July, and processed fruits and vegetables rose about as much in August
as in July.
The index for consumer durables moved up 0.7 percent
over the month, after a sharp rise in July (1.8 percent)
and a small increase in June (0.2 percent). Jewelry prices
advanced markedly less in August than in the preceding
month. Household flatware prices also rose less than in
July. Prices turned down after increasing a month before
for floor coverings. After rising in July, dinnerware prices
were unchanged in August. On the other hand, prices for
mobile homes rose somewhat faster than in July. Price
increases for passenger cars, household furniture, and
appliances were about the same as in the previous month.




Intermediate materials
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components rose 0.5 percent in August,
seasonally adjusted, the same as in July. The index for
intermediate materials excluding foods and feeds increased
0.7 percent over the month, somewhat more than in any of
the preceding 5 months. Much of this acceleration was
caused by steel mill products, which advanced substantially
for the third time this year. Prices for primary nonferrous
metal refinery shapes, fabricated metal products, lumber,
leather, refractories, and concrete products rose considerably more than in the previous month, and plywood and
2

after seasonal adjustment, following a 0.6 percent decrease
in July and a 1.8 percent advance in June. The index for
crude nonfood materials moved down for the first time in
nearly a year. Prices for natural gas and leaf tobacco fell
after rising in July. Crude petroleum prices increased
substantially less than in either of the 2 preceding months.
On the other hand, prices for hides and skins, plant and
animal fibers, and nonferrous scrap turned up following
declines in July. Iron and steel scrap and crude natural
rubber rose more in August than in the previous month.

plastic construction products turned up following decreases
in July. On the other hand, prices for inedible fats and
oils, motor vehicle parts, building paper and board, and
millwork fell after increasing in July. Liquefied petroleum
gas and residual fuels declined more than in the preceding
month.
The index for intermediate foods and feeds moved
down 3.4 percent from July to August, following a 1.5
percent increase in July. This reversal was principally
due to prices for manufactured animal feeds, which
turned sharply lower in August after registering a large
advancc in July. In contrast, prices for flour and for refined
sugar for food manufacturing rose following July decreases.
Confectionery materials also increased in August but not as
much as in the previous month. (Intermediate materials are
semifinished commodities which have been processed
but which require further processing before they become
finished goods.)

The index for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs decreased
for the second consecutive month. Prices for grains and
green coffee dropped more than in July. Oilseeds and live
poultry turned down after increasing in July. Livestock
prices also decreased but not as much as in the prior month.
Fluid milk prices rose less than in any other month so far
this year. On the other hand, raw cane sugar prices turned
up following a July decline, and cocoa beans advanced
more than in July. (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.)

Crude materials
The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further processing declined 1.3 percent from July to August

Technical Note: Test Data for Producer Price Index Revision
Test data from the pilot survey for the Producer Price
Index (PPI) revision have been developed for the period
beginning January 1978 and are published each month in
table 14, "Producer price indexes for the net output of
selected industries and products," in this report. The revision is being undertaken as a comprehensive effort to
make major improvements in the measurement of price
changes by domestic producers of goods and services.
The data now available are from a pilot survey conducted
to test the methods and procedures for the comprehensive
revision. The revision will be conducted on an industry-byindustry basis. The results for the first industries in the fullscale survey will be available in the fall of 1979. Coverage
of all mining and manufacturing industries is scheduled
for completion in 1984.
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. The new indexes will not begin replacing the old
ones in the Producer Price Index until early 1980.
These pilot survey indexes differ from indexes in the
current Producer Price Index in a number of important
rcspects:
(1) They are industry-based indexes. The entire output of each industry is sampled, including secondary production and miscellaneous receipts. The
current Producer Price Indexes are based on a
sample of major products. Even the IndustrySector Price Indexes (ISPI's) are derived from
these product indexes. The current ISPFs do not
price miscellaneous receipts, and the prices for
primary and secondary production are obtained
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




(3)

(4)

(5)

with the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC)
system and incorporate most features of the
Census of Manufactures product code extensions
of the SIC. The coding will make the data easier to
use in conjunction with other industry-oriented
economic data.
Net output values of shipments are used as weights
in preparing the index. Net output values refer to
the value of shipments leaving the industry. In
contrast, the weights used 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
major defects of the current indexes. The current
stage-of-processing indexes partially correct this
defect, but the new indexes consistently correct
it at all levels.
Increased emphasis is being given to obtaining
actual transaction prices at the time of shipment.
Although it has been a general objective of the
current program to obtain transaction prices,
they have not been obtained for significant portions of the index. In addition, some products in
the current PPI intentionally have been priced at
order prices rather than shipment prices.
Probability sampling was used to selcct 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 transaction were chosen
using probability techniques. In the current PH,
major companies selected on a judgment basis are
asked to report prices for volume-selling items
under "typical" transaction terms.
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 now be calculated, will
be produced.
(2) Ultimately, the survey will cover all shipments by
all 493 industries in mining and manufacturing.
The present PPI's cover only about 50 percent of
this value; the pilot survey covers about 2 percent
of it.
83

(3)

Improved calculation techniques will be introduced, 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.
For further information on the underlying concepts
and methodology of the Producer Price Index revision, see
'improving the Measurement of Producer Price Change,"
by John F. Early, in the April 1978 issue of the Monthly
Labor Review. Reprints are available from the Bureau of
Labor Statistics upon request.

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




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

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
Pricc Indexes on actual transaction prices; however, list
or bcok 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 18S.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
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.
GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE: 1978




281-405/12

1-3

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.
