Price Movements
November 1978

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved up
0.8 percent from October to November on a seasonally
adjusted basis. The November increase followed advances of
0.9 percent in both October and September (table A).
Prices for intermediate (semifinished) and crude goods rose
considerably less than in October. Price increases for foods
and food-related materials eased at all stages of processing.
Among finished goods, prices for consumer foods rose
much less than in either of the 2 preceding months. Prices
for finished goods excluding foods, however, increased
more rapidly. Capital equipment prices advanced more than
in any month since October 1977. Prices for consumer
durables moved up after showing no change in October, but
the November pace was somewhat slower than in the first
9 months of 1978. The index for consumer nondurables
other than foods rose more than in any other month so
far this year except for October (table B).
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index for
Finished Goods increased 0.5 percent to 200.6 (1967=100).

Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index rose 8.7
percent. The finished consumer foods index was up 11.2
percent from November 1977 to November 1978, the index
for finished consumer goods excluding foods rose 7.8
percent, and the capital equipment index was 7.9 percent
higher than a year ago. The Producer Price Index for inter­
mediate goods increased 8.2 percent over the year, and
crude material prices advanced 18.0 percent.
Finished goods

Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
rose 0.7 percent in November after seasonal adjustment,
somewhat less than in October (1.0 percent) and September
(0.9 percent). Price increases slowed down markedly for
finished consumer foods, but prices for consumer goods
other than foods moved up slightly more than in October.
The finished consumer foods index rose 0.6 percent in
November, after increasing 1.7 percent in both October and

and construction machinery, however, moved up much
less than in October, and motor truck prices edged down
after a small increase in the previous month.

September. The slowdown in price increases for food was
due in part to a downturn in prices for beef and veal and
fresh fruits and a considerably smaller increase for pork.
In November, prices were higher for fresh and dried vege­
tables, processed poultry, eggs, refined sugar in consumer
size packages, and processed fruits and vegetables. Prices
were lower for milled rice and roasted coffee.
The index for consumer nondurable goods other than
foods moved up 0.9 percent in November, after rising 1.1
percent in October and 0.6 percent in September. Prices
increased less in November for nonalcoholic beverages,
apparel, leather footwear, and gasoline. On the other hand,
prices increased faster than in October for sanitary papers
and health products and for both prescription and over-thecounter drugs. As in October, large increases were registered
for tires and tubes, home heating oil, and alcoholic
beverages. Prices for tobacco products declined.
Prices for consumer durables rose 0.5 percent over the
month after showing no change in October and after
rising an average of 1 percent during the preceding 9
months. Prices were higher for passenger cars, household
flatware, and cutlery, while prices for jewelry declined.

Intermediate materials

The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components rose 0.7 percent in November on
a seasonally adjusted basis. This increase was smaller than
the 1.2 percent rise in October and was the same as the
average monthly increase thus far in 1978.
Prices for intermediate materials excluding foods and
feeds advanced 0.8 percent, compared with a 1.1 percent
rise in October and an average monthly advance of 0.6
percent in the 9 months before that. Price increases for
durable manufacturing materials slowed: Prices for gold,
silver, tin, and copper cathode fell, and finished steel
products advanced less than in the previous month.
On the other hand, prices for copper and aluminum mill
shapes and copper wire and cable rose sharply, partly
reflecting earlier increases in primary metal prices. Among
nondurable manufacturing materials, the industrial
chemicals index turned down, and prices for woodpulp,
paper, and paperboard registered smaller increases than in
October. Higher prices were recorded for inedible fats and
oils, leather, textile products, and synthetic rubber. The
index for plastic resins and materials moved up for the first
time since May.
Prices for materials and components for construction
continued to rise in November, led by advances for lumber
and plywood. Substantially higher prices were also regis­
tered for gypsum products, asphalt roofing, structural clay

Capital equipment The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment moved up 1.0 percent over the month; these
prices had registered an average monthly increase of 0.6
percent during the first 10 months of 1978. Some of the
largest price rises in November occurred for transformers
and power regulators, special purpose machinery, machine
tools, power driven hand tools, pumps and compressors,
aircraft, and railroad equipment. Prices for agricultural

November, following a 3.0 percent increase in October.
Most of the deceleration was caused by a smaller increase
in the crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs index, which rose
1.3 percent compared with 3.6 percent in the previous
month. Prices fell after rising in October for fresh fruits,
raw cane sugar, livestock, and oilseeds. On the other hand,
grain prices moved up substantially for the second consecu­
tive month following 5 months of falling prices. Prices for
live poultry, green coffee, and cocoa beans moved up after
declining in October.
The crude nonfood materials index advanced 1.8 per­
cent, slightly less than the 2.1 percent increase in the
preceding month but more than the 1.0 percent average
rise in the first 9 months of the year. Large price increases
were recorded for iron and steel scrap, crude natural
rubber, and wastepaper. On the other hand, lower prices
were registered for hides and skins.

products, and plastic construction products. Among other
intermediate goods, prices for electric motors registered the
largest advance in more than 2 years, electronic compo­
nents and accessories rose more than in any month since
January, and diesel fuel prices increased more than in most
recent months. In contrast, the index for electronic power
moved down, and prices for motor vehicle parts rose much
less than in October.
The intermediate foods and feeds index declined 0.3
percent from October to November, after 2 months of sub­
stantial increases. Prices fell for both crude begetable oils
and refined sugar for use in food manufacturing. On the
other hand, prices for flour, animal fats and oils, and
manufactured animal feeds moved up.
Crude materials

The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing was up 1.5 percent, seasonally adjusted, in

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 revi­
sion 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
respects:
(1) They are industry-based indexes. The entire out­
put of each industry is sampled, including second­
ary production and miscellaneous receipts. The
current Producer Price Indexes are based on a
sample of major products. Even the IndustrySector Price Indexes (ISPFs) are derived from
these product indexes. The current ISPI’s 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
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.
(3) 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 PPFs 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.
(4) 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 por­
tions of the index. In addition, some products in
the current PPI intentionally 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 transaction were chosen
using probability techniques. In the current PPI,
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 PPFs cover only about 50 percent of
83

this value; the pilot survey covers about 2 percent
of it.
(3) Improved calculation techniques will be intro­
duced, including the use of Census of Manufac­
tures 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, see
“Improving the Measurement of Producer Price Change/’

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, agricul­
ture, forestry, fishing, mining, gas and electricity, and
public utilities sectors. The universe includes all com­
modities 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
FINISHED GOODS




goods) includes commodities such as motor trucks, farm
equipment, and machine tools. Finished consumer goods
include foods and other types of goods eventually pur­
chased 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.

CRUDE MATERIALS

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
collected monthly, primarily by mail questionnaire. Re­
spondents 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 bcok prices are used if transaction prices are not
available. Most prices are obtained directly from prowould 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 on page 85).
To the extent possible, prices used in calculating
Producer Price Indexes apply to the first significant com­
mercial transaction in the United States, from the produc­
tion or central marketing point. Price data are generally
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

Note on Seasonally
Adjusted Data

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.

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