INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production rose 0.7 percent in March after increasing 0.8 percent in February; industrial capacity
utilization increased 0.4 percentage point in March to 83.3 percent.
Much of the rise in industrial production during the past two months reflected large increases in the output
of motor vehicles and parts, which had been curtailed sharply in January when its operating rate fell to its lowest level
since January 1983. The other major contributor to the overall production increase in March was utility output, which
increased markedly as temperatures were more normal after an unseasonably warm January and February. Elsewhere,
production was little changed, on balance, in March. The rise in production of motor vehicles and parts pushed capacity
utilization in manufacturing up slightly in March; nonetheless, it remains below its level of a year ago. At 108.8 percent
of the 1987 annual average, total industrial production in March was 1.0 percent higher than a year earlier.
Market Groups
Output of products rose 0.7 percent in March, with production of autos and light trucks up nearly
16 percent. The rise in motor vehicle output contributed to higher production of both consumer goods and business
equipment; excluding autos and trucks, output of consumer goods was about unchanged. Strong gains in appliance
production and utility output for residential use were offset by decreases in the production of foods and gasoline.

Business equipment excluding autos and trucks edged down owing to a decline in the production of
information processing and related equipment, mainly office and computing machines. Output of industrial equipment
rose 0.8 percent in March but remained below its January level. Output of construction supplies rose slightly in both
February and March; for the first quarter as a whole, production rose more than 4 1/2 percent at an annual rate.
Output of materials rose sharply in March owing mainly to a jump in the production of energy materials,
particularly electricity generation. Among durable materials, the advance in the production of components for motor
vehicles was partially offset by a decline in output of basic metals. The output of nondurable goods materials fell,
reflecting weakness in textiles and chemicals.
Industry Groups
Production in manufacturing increased 0.3 percent in March, bringing the factory operating rate up slightly
to 82.7 percent. This rise stemmed mostly from the sharp increases in production of motor vehicles and parts, as well as
from output gains for the fabricated metals and rubber and plastics industries, which manufacture some motor vehicle
components. Production at utilities rose 6.0 percent in March while mining output increased a bit. Utilization rates for
both mining and utilities were near their 1967 to 1989 average. Within mining, an extended period of weakness for oil
and gas well drilling has been offset by relatively high operating rates elsewhere.
Within manufacturing, capacity utilization for advanced processing industries rose in March while the rate
for primary processing industries fell. Rates for both advanced and primary processing industries have dropped during
the past year. Among the advanced processing industries, significant declines have occurred in operating rates for motor
vehicles and parts, furniture and fixtures, and printing and publishing. Major contributors to the decline in primary
processing include primary metals, textiles, chemicals, and rubber and plastics products. Even so, the utilization rates
for most of these primary processing industries remain above their long-run averages, as does the total primary
processing rate.

NOTICE
The G.17(4l9) Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization release combines information previously published in the separate statistical releases G12.3 Industrial Production and G.3(402) Capacity Utilization.
Effective this release, the industrial production, capacity, capacity utilization, and electric power use statistics
have been revised.
PQifltsoflitfQTOatiQn:
• The industrial production and capacity indexes are aggregated on the basis of 1987 valueadded weights; industrial production and electric power have been rebased to 1987. Revisions date from 1977
for industrial production; from 1967 for capacity and capacity utilization; and from 1972 for electric power.
• The revisions to the index of industrial production are reviewed in an article in the April Federal Reserve Bulletin. The separate system of capacity utilization for materials has been discontinued. Many of
its components have been folded into the revised estimates for mining and manufacturing (see tables 3 and 4 of
the release). The revisions and structure modifications to the capacity and capacity utilization statistics will
appear in an article in the June Bulletin.
• Historical data are available on magnetic tapefromthe National Technical Information Service
(703-487-4650). The revised estimates of production, capacity, and utilization for total industry and total manufacturing are shown in tables 5 A and 5B of the release. Hardcopy of the revised estimates of individual series
shown in this release is available upon written request to Industrial Output Section, Mail Stop 82, Division of
Research and Statistics, Federal Reserve Board, Washington, D.C. 20551.
• Data shown on this release are available on the day of issue through the Department of Commerce's online Economic Bulletin Board (202-377-3870).

Explanatory Note
seasonally adjusted total index is calculated by aggregating the seasonally
adjusted major market groups, and may not precisely equal an aggregation
of the seasonally adjusted industry groups. In addition, because the
seasonal adjustment of aggregates is done separately, the seasonally
adjusted value of a given market or industry group may not be equal to an
aggregation of its seasonally adjusted components.

Hie Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization release reports
measures of output, capacity, and capacity utilization in the manufacturing,
mining, and electric and gas utilities industries. Survey data on electric
power use in manufacturing and mining also are included.
Industrial Production
Coverage. The industrial production index (IP) measures output in the
manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities industries. The
index's current reference period in which all of the production indexes
equal 100, is 1987. The total IP index is constructed from 250 individual
series. These individual series are aggregated in two ways: market groups
(shown in table 1), such as consumer goods, equipment, intermediate
products, and materials, from which the seasonally adjusted total index is
derived; and industry groups (shown in table 2), such as two-digit Standard
Industrial Classification (SIC) industries and major aggregates of these
industries, for example, durable and nondurable manufacturing, mining,
and utilities. The 1977 SIC is the basis for industry classification of IP.

Reliability. The average revision to the level of the total IP index, without
regard to sign, between the preliminary estimate and its third revision (or
from the first and the fourth estimates) was 0.36 percent during the
1972-88 period. The average revision to the percent change in total IP,
without regard to sign, from the first to the fourth estimates was 0.27
percentage point during the same period. In most cases (about 85 percent),
the direction of change in output indicated by the first estimate for a given
month is the same as that shown by the fourth estimate.
Rounding. In some cases, components may not add to totals because of
independent rounding. In addition, the published percent changes are
calculated from indexes with three digits of precision to the right of the
decimal point, and may not be the same as percent changes calculated from
the rounded indexes shown in the release.

Market groups. For purposes of analysis, the individual IP series are
grouped into final products, intermediate products, and materials. Final
products are assumed to be purchased by consumers, businesses, or
government for final use. Intermediate products are expected to become
inputs in nonindustrial sectors, such as construction, agriculture, and
services. Materials are industrial output requiring further processing within
the industrial sector. Total products comprises final and intermediate
products, and final products are divided into consumer goods and
equipment.

References. Industrial Production -1986 Edition contains a more detailed
description of the methods used to compile the index, plus a history of its
development, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography. The 1990 revision to
the index is described in Kenneth A. Armitage and Dixon A. Tranum,
"Industrial Production: 1989 Developments and Historical Revision",
Federal Reserve Bulletin, Vol. 76 (April 1990), pp. 187-204.

Timing. The first estimate of output for a month is published around the
15th of the following month. The estimate is preliminary (denoted by the
superscript "p" in tables) and subject to revision in each of the subsequent
three months as new source data become available. (Revised estimates are
denoted by the superscript "r" in tables.) After the fourth month, indexes
are not revised further until the time of an annual revision or a benchmark
revision. The last three benchmark revisions were published in 1990, 1985,
and 1976.

Capacity Utilization
Definition. Capacity utilization is calculated for the manufacturing,
mining, and electric and gas utilities industries. For a given industry, the
utilization rate is equal to an output index divided by a capacity index.
Output is measured by seasonally adjusted indexes of industrial production.
The capacity indexes attempt to capture the concept of practical capacity,
which is defined as the greatest level of output that a plant can maintain
within the framework of a realistic work schedule, taking account of
normal downtime, and assuming sufficient availability of inputs to operate
the machinery and equipment in place. The 74 individual capacity indexes
are based on a variety of data, including capacity data measured in physical
units compiled by trade associations, surveys of utilization rates and
investment, and estimates of growth of the capital stock.

Source data. In annual or benchmark revisions, the individual IP indexes
are constructed from a variety of source data, such as the quinquennial
Censuses of Manufactures and Mineral Industries and the Annual Survey of
Manufactures, prepared by the Bureau of the Census; the Minerals
Yearbook, prepared by the Bureau of Mines; and publications of the
Department of Energy, On a monthly basis, the individual indexes of
industrial production are constructed from two types of source data: (1)
output measured in physical units, and (2) data on inputs to the production
process, from which output is inferred. Physical product data, such as tons
of steel or barrels of oil, are obtained from private trade associations, as
well as the government agencies listed above; data of this type are used to
estimate monthly IP where possible and appropriate. When suitable
physical product data are unavailable, estimates of output are based on
either production-worker hours, kilowatt hours, or a combination of the
two. Hours of production workers are collected in the monthly
establishment survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The
kilowatt hour data are collected by the Federal Reserve District Banks from
electric utilities and manufacturing and mining establishments that generate
electric power for their own use (cogenerators). The factors used to
convert inputs into estimates of production are based on historical
relationships between the inputs and the comprehensive data used to
benchmark the IP indexes (censuses, annual surveys, and the like); these
factors also may be influenced by technological or cyclical developments.
The available source data are limited and subject to revision, especially for
the first and second output estimates for a given month.

Groups. Estimates of capacity and utilization are available for a variety of
groups, including primary and advanced processing industries within
manufacturing, durable and nondurable manufacturing, total
manufacturing, and total industry. Component industries of the primary
and advanced processing groups within manufacturing are listed in the note
on tables 2 and 3 of the release.
Weights. Value-added weights are used to aggregate the individual
capacity indexes in the same manner as individual IP series are aggregated
to the total index of industrial production. Although each utilization rate is
the result of dividing an IP series by a corresponding capacity index,
aggregate utilization rates are equivalent to combinations of individual
utilization rates aggregated with proportions that reflect current capacity
levels of output valued in base-period value-added per unit of actual
output. The implied proportions of individual industry operating rates in
the rate for total industry for the most recent year are shown in the first
column of table 3.
References. The basic methodology used to estimate capacity and
utilization is discussed in Richard D. Raddock, "Revised Federal Reserve
Rates of Capacity Utilization," Federal Reserve Bulletin, Vol. 71 (October
1985), pp. 754—66. A review of the 1990 revision of capacity and capacity
utilizaton will appear in an article in the June 1990 Federal Reserve
Bulletin.

Weights* In the index, series that measure the output of an individual
industry are weighted according to their proportion in the total value-added
output of all industries. The industrial production index, which extends
back to 1919, is built in chronological segments that are chainlinked to
form a continuous index expressed as a percentage of output in a
comparison-base year (currently 1987). Each segment, which usually
spans five years, is a Laspeyres quantity index showing changes in
quantities with prices (Census value added per unit of output) held at
base-year values for the segment. For the period from 1987 to the present,
IP is aggregated on the basis of 1987 value-added weights. The
aggregation of the index for the 1982-86 period is based on 1982 weights,
while 1977 weights are used for the 1977-81 period. The other weight
years in the postwar period are 1972, 1967, 1963, 1958, 1954, and 1947.
The 1987 value-added weights used to aggregate the index are shown in
the first column of tables 1, 2, and 6 under the heading "Proportion in total
IP - 1987". To the extent that a given industry grows at a different rate
than the total index, its proportion will change over time. Proportions for
the most recent complete year of data are shown in the second column of
tables 1, 2, and 6.

Electric power (kilowatt hour) data are collected by the Federal Reserve
District Banks from electric utilities and manufacturing and mining
establishments that generate electric power for their own use
(cogenerators). The index aggregations and detailed components shown in
table 9 are unweighted. The first column of the table shows, for reference,
electric power use in billions of kilowatt hours as reported by
manufacturing and mining industries in the 1987 censuses of those
industries. The supplementary group, 'Total, less nuclear nondefense," is
shown separately because the nondefense nuclear material series (part of
SIC 2819) accounts for a disproportionately large part of total electric
power use. Because the value—added proportion for this industry in total IP
is considerably smaller than its share of total electric power use, excluding
this component from total power use facilitates comparisons with total IP.

Seasonal adjustment Individual series are seasonally adjusted by the
X-l 1 Arima Method, which was developed at Statistics Canada. The
current seasonal factors are based on data through 1988. Individual series
and major aggregates are seasonally adjusted independently. The
