Price Movements
April 1979

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved up
0.9 percent from March to April on a seasonally adjusted
basis. This followed increases of 1.0 percent in both March
and February and a 1.2 percent advance in January. Prices
for intermediate (semifinished) goods rose 1.5 percent,
even more than the large monthly increases registered
during the first quarter. Crude material prices, however,
declined slightly after rising sharply in the first 3 months
of the year (table A).
Among finished goods, consumer food prices edged
down in April after increasing rapidly during the 7 preceding months. On the other hand, prices for consumer
goods other than foods and for capital equipment both
rose more than in any month during the last year (table B).
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index
for Finished Goods rose 1.1 percent to 211.2 (1967=100).
Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index increased
10.3 percent. The finished consumer foods index was up

11.3 percent from April 1978 to April 1979, the index
for finished consumer goods excluding foods rose 10.4
percent, and capital equipment prices were 9.2 percent
higher than a year ago. The Producer Price Index for
intermediate goods increased 10.7 percent over the year,
and prices for crude materials advanced 17.1 percent.
Finished goods

Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
increased 0.8 percent in April, after rising about 1.2 percent
in each of the preceding 4 months. Prices for finished
consumer foods declined from the preceding month, while
prices rose more rapidly for consumer durables and consumer nondurables other than foods.
The finished consumer foods index edged down 0.3
percent, the first decrease since August 1978. Prices for
pork and roasted coffee fell more than in the previous

month. Prices for both construction and agricultural
machinery rose considerably more than in most recent
months. The largest increases among other capital goods
occurred for industrial furnaces and ovens, pumps and
compressors, mining machinery, chemical industrial
machinery, and machine tools. Prices for commercial
furniture moved down.

month, fresh vegetable prices dropped sharply for the
second consecutive month, and poultry prices decreased
about as much as a month earlier. Prices for beef and veal,
eggs, and confectionery end products increased less than in
March. On the other hand, prices rose more than in the
preceding month for milled rice, bakery products, and fresh
fruits. Prices turned up after falling in March for vegetable
ofl end products and fish.
Prices for consumer nondurables other than foods rose
more rapidly in April (1.7 percent) than in any other
month since July 1974, when they moved up 1.9 percent.
Gasoline prices advanced 4.4 percent in April, the ninth
consecutive monthly increase over 1 percent. Home heating
oil prices moved up 6.7 percent following a 5.3 percent rise
in March. Prices also rose more than in March for apparel,
over-the-counter drugs, consumer plastics, rubber footwear,
and bicycles. On the other hand, prices for tires and tubes
edged down for the second consecutive month after 5
months of sharply rising prices. Prices for leather footwear
rose considerably less than in most recent months.
The index for consumer durables advanced 0.9 percent,
somewhat more than in the 2 previous months and nearly
as much as in January. The acceleration in price increases
in April was due to higher prices for passenger cars. Prices
for precious metal jewelry and mobile homes, however,
rose less than in March.
Capital equipment. The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment advanced 1.1 percent in April, much more than
in March (0.6 percent) and February (0.8 percent). The
faster rise in April was partly due to an upturn in prices
for motor trucks, which showed no change in the previous

Intermediate materials

The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components rose 1.5 percent in April on a
seasonally adjusted basis, following advances of 1.0 percent
in March and 1.1 percent in both February and January.
The acceleration from the already rapid rate of advance in
this price index during the first quarter of the year was
largely due to nonfood materials, which increased more
than in any month since August 1974. Some of the largest
increases were for products derived from petroleum,
including fuels, plastics, and chemicals. In addition, prices
for many other manufacturing and construction materials,
particularly nonferrous metals, continued to climb.
The processed fuels and lubricants index rose 3.2
percent after advancing 1.9 percent in March. Accelerating
price increases were recorded by residual fuel, diesel fuel,
and commercial jet fuel. Prices for liquefied petroleum gas
rose sharply for the second consecutive month after falling
during most of 1978 and early 1979. Electric power rose
about as much as in March.
The durable manufacturing materials index increased
more sharply than in the previous month, largely because
of continuing large rises in primary nonferrous metals,
2

The intermediate foods and feeds index moved up 0.9
percent in April following a smaller increase in March.
Prices for animal fats and oils rose sharply after edging up
slightly for 2 months. Flour prices continued to advance,
while the indexes for manufactured animal feeds and confectionery materials declined.

particularly copper, nickel, aluminum, silver, zinc, and lead.
Steel mill products and pig iron and ferroalloys rose more
than in March. Prices for plastic components and hardwood
lumber also advanced, while the jewelers' materials and
findings index fell after rising throughout the first quarter.
Prices for nondurable manufacturing materials increased
somewhat more than in March. The industrial chemicals
index rose substantially for the fourth consecutive month;
the April advance was the largest since November 1974.
The largest increases within this group were for petroleumderived basic organic chemicals. Price increases also accelerated for plastic resins and materials, woodpulp, paper,
paperboard, inedible fats and oils, drugs and pharmaceutical
materials, nitrogenates, and phosphates. Leather prices rose
considerably less than in March. Among textile products,
gray fabrics increased for the first time since November, but
processed yarns and threads declined after an advance in
the previous month.

Crude materials

The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing declined 0.4 percent on a seasonally adjusted
basis, the first decrease since August 1977. The downturn
was due to lower prices for both food and nonfood
materials.
The index for crude nonfood materials moved down 0.S
percent over the month, in contrast to the 29.5 percent
annual rate of increase registered in the first quarter of
the year. The largest decreases in April occurred in prices
for iron and steel scrap and for hides and skins, both of
which had been rising substantially for several months. Coal
prices moved down slightly following a moderate increase
in March. Natural gas prices moved up but less than in most
recent months. On the other hand, prices for crude natural
rubber and nonferrous scrap rose much more than in the
previous month. Higher prices were also registered for iron
ore, wastepaper, and crude petroleum.
The index for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs dropped
0 3 percent, seasonally adjusted, after a 0.2 percent rise in
March and much larger increases in thefirst2 months of the
year. Prices were lower in April for hogs, fresh and dried
vegetables, cocoa beans, live poultry, and oilseeds. In
contrast, prices for wheat and corn turned up sharply after
edging down in the preceding month; raw cane sugar prices
also rose after a March decrease. Prices for green coffee rose
about twice as much as in March. Cattle prices continued
to advance, but the April increase was the smallest so far
this year.

Prices for construction materials continued to move up
about as much as during the first 3 months of 1979. Price
increases accelerated for millwork, fabricated structural
metal products, and fasteners. The indexes for nonferrous
wire and cable, asphalt roofing, bituminous paving materials,
softwood lumber, concrete products, and structural clay
products also advanced. On the other hand, prices for
plastic construction products, plywood, and Portland
cement were lower.
Among components for manufacturing, large price
increases were recorded for motor vehicle parts, bearings,
and internal combustion engines. Other intermediate nonfood materials which rose rapidly in April included metal
containers, paper boxes and containers, plastic packaging
and shipping products, pallets and boxes, mixed fertilizers,
and tractor parts.

Technical Note: Test Data for
Producer Price Index Revision

(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
ISPFs 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 portions 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

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
respects:
(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 (ISPFs) 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.

(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.

this value; the pilot survey covers about 2 percent
of it.
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.

Brief Explanation of
Producer Price Indexes

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.

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.

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
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 Index 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. 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 n t
<
available. Most prices are obtained directly from producing 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

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