Price Movements

October 1978

Summary

Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index for
Finished Goods increased 1.4 percent to 199.7 (1967=100).
Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index rose 8.6
percent. The finished consumer foods index was up 11.9
percent from October 1977 to October 1978, the index for
finished consumer goods other than foods increased 7.S
percent, and the capital equipment index was 7.5 percent
higher than a year ago. The Producer Price Index for intermediate goods rose 8.0 percent over the year, and crude
material prices advanced 20.4 percent.

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved up
0.9 percent from September to October on a seasonally
adjusted basis. The October advance followed an increase
of the same size in September and a 0.1 percent decline in
August (table A). Prices for both intermediate (semifinished) goods and crude goods rose substantially more
than in recent months, as increases for nonfood as well as
food-related materials accelerated.
Amongfinishedgoods, prices for consumer foods rose
sharply for the second consecutive month, following falling
prices in August and July and generally large increases in
the first 6 months of 1978. Consumer nondurables other
than foods advanced much more than in any other month
so far this year (table B). On the other hand, the index for
consumer durables was unchanged after rising rapidly
during most of the year to date; a seasonally adjusted
decline in passenger car prices offset increases for other
consumer durables. Capital equipment prices continued to
increase about as much as in most other recent months.

Finished goods

Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
rose 1.0 percent from September to October after seasonal
adjustment, about the same as in September. This index
had declined in August. In October, prices for consumer
foods rose at the same rapid rate as in September (1.7
percent). Before that, the finished consumer foods index
had declined for 2 months. Prices rose in October for most

finished consumer foods» including pork, fish, beef and
veal, fresh and dried fruits, packaged cocoa, milled rice,
eggs, refined sugar in consumer-size packages, processed
fruits and vegetables, and dairy products. Prices declined
for processed poultry, fresh and dried vegetables, and
confectionery end products.
Price increases accelerated for consumer nondurable
goods other than foods, after rising moderately in most
other months so far this year. The 1.1 percent advance
in October was the largest in 4 years. The acceleration
from September to October was mainly due to larger price
increases for gasoline, home heating oil, and tires and tubes.
Advances were also recorded for soaps and synthetic detergents, leather footwear, nonalcoholic and alcoholic
beverages, and apparel.
Prices for consumer durable goods were unchanged
over the month, the first time since October 1976 that they
did not rise. Decreases for passenger cars balanced increases
for metal household containers, household flatware,
jewelry, dinnerware, and mobile homes. (Prices for 1979
model-year automobiles were reflected for the first time
in October. See USDL news release 78-921 titled "Report
on Quality Changes for 1979 Model Passenger Cars,'9
issued on November 3.) The decrease for the passenger car
index over the month after seasonal adjustment reflected
the decision by domestic automobile manufacturers to
institute price changes throughout the model year rather
than wait until the fall when new models are usually
introduced. Automobile producers had raised prices across
the board this past spring and therefore did not increase
prices of new models as much as they would have under

the former pricing policy. Over the year, passenger car
prices were up 6.2 percent.
Capital equipment. The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment rose 0.6 percent in October, the same as the
average monthly advance recorded in the first 9 months of
the year. Smaller price increases than in September were
registered for some kinds of capital goods, such as agricultural machinery, motor trucks, railroad equipment, and
photographic equipment. These slowdowns were offset by
an acceleration in price increases for several other types
of capital equipment, including construction machinery,
special industry machinery, and power-driven hand took.
Prices for most other capital goods continued to rise about
as much as in recent months.
Intermediate materials

The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components advanced 1.2 percent in October,
seasonally adjusted, the largest monthly increase since
November 1974. The acceleration was caused primarily
by the index for intermediate materials excluding foods and
feeds, which advanced 1.1 percent in October after rising
0.6 and 0.7 percent in September and August, respectively.
Price indexes for durable manufacturing materials and
construction materials both rose much more than in
September. Among durable manufacturing materials,
sharply higher prices were recorded for nonferrous metals.
Plywood, lumber, asphalt roofing, cement, and building
paper and board led the advance for construction materials.
Large increases in prices for motor vehicle parts and electronic components accounted for much of the acceleration
2

a 1.3 percent decrease in August. The index for crude
foodstuffs and feedstuffs moved up 3.6 percent over the
month after rising 1.9 percent in September. The acceleration in October was due to two factors: First, an upturn
in prices for fresh and dried fruits, grains, and raw cane
sugar, all of which had moved down in the previous month;
and second, larger price increases than in September for
hogs and oilseeds. Cattle prices continued to rise rapidly.
In contrast, prices were lower for live poultry, green coffee,
and cocoa beans following September advances.
The index for crude nonfood materials also rose considerably more in October (2.1 percent) than in the preceding
month (1.0 percent). Prices rose much more than in September for nonferrous scrap, plant and animalfibers,and
crude natural rubber; in addition, prices for iron and steel
scrap and wastepaper turned up after falling in September.
Prices were also higher in October for most other crude
nonfood materials, including hides and skins, iron ore,
natural gas, and crude petroleum.

in the manufacturing components index. Among processed
fuels and lubricants, prices for diesel fuel rose substantially
more than in most recent months, but residual fuel and
coke prices turned down. Increases for nondurable manufacturing materials such as leather, gray fabrics, and paperboard were not as large as in September but were generally
larger than those in many other recent months.
The intermediate foods and feeds index moved up 2.8
percent over the month, following a 2.2 percent increase
in September and a 3.4 percent decline in August. Prices
for manufactured animal feeds turned sharply higher
after falling during the 2 preceding months. Refined
sugar for food manufacturing was also up, but prices
for animal fats and oils, crude vegetable oils, and flour
decreased.
Crude materials

The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing advanced 3.0 percent seasonally adjusted in
October, following a 1.6 percent increase in September and

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 tima which have not been
manufactured or fabricated but will be processed before
becoming finished gpods. 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

SUPPLIES AND COMPONENTS

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.
