INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production increased 0.2 percent in July after an increase of 0.3 percent in June. Growth was
slowed by a fall in the production of motor vehicles and parts and by smaller declines in a number of nondurable goods
manufacturing industries. Large increases occurred again in the production of commercial aircraft, computers, and
semiconductors. In addition, output at utilities surged 1.5 percent, as production moved further toward seasonal norms
after unseasonably cool weather in May. At 119.8 percent of its 1992 average, industrial production in July was
3.7 percent higher than it was in July 1996. The rate of industrial capacity utilization slipped to 83.1 percent; during the
past twelve months, the rate has ranged between 83.0 percent and 83.6 percent.
Market grpyp?
After an increase of 0.4 percent in June, the overall output of consumer goods slipped 0.2 percent in July;
the production of durable goods was unchanged, and that of nondurable goods fell 0.3 percent. The lack of growth in

durable consumer goods resulted from a drop of nearly 15 percent in the production of consumer light trucks, a category
that includes vans and sport utility vehicles. In contrast, production gains were widespread among other consumer
durables, including sizable increases in the production of appliances, home computers, and audio and video equipment.
The fall in the production of nondurable consumer goods resulted primarily from significant declines in the output of
clothing, chemical products, paper products, and fuels. Residential electricity sales rebounded further from their big drop
in May.
Continuing its strong expansion, the output of business equipment increased 0.5 percent, bringing the index
in My to a level 7.4 percent higher than that of the previous July. The growth in business equipment was led by solid
gains in the output of business vehicles other than light trucks, by further strong increases in information processing
equipment and in commercial aircraft, and by sharp gains in fami and service industry machinery. However, the output of
industrial equipment weakened again and has now fallen almost 1.4 percent from its recent peak in April. The output of
defense and space equipment fell 0.5 percent.
After a drop of 0.7 percent in June, the output of construction supplies fell another 0.3 percent in July; as a
result, the July index for this market group is more than 1.7 percent below its peak in March. The production of
materials, however, rose 0.6 percent, led by a large increase in the output of energy materials; coal mining and electricity
generation provided much of the boost. The output of durable goods advanced 0.4 percent; gains in the production of
equipment parts, particularly semiconductors, more than offset decreases in the production of parts for consumer
durables, mainly for motor vehicles. Pushed by increases in chemical and paper materials, the output of nondurable
goods materials increased 0.4 percent.
Industry Groups
Manufacturing output increased 0.1 percent in July after a 0.3 percent increase in June; excluding motor
vehicles and parts, however, production rose 0.2 percent for the third consecutive month. Continuing the pattern of the
past several months, the gains in manufacturing output were concentrated in durable goods. Gains were widespread, with
only the lumber, primary metals, and motor vehicles and parts industries declining appreciably; increases were especially
strong in computers and electrical machinery. The output of nondurable goods declined. Only two nondurables
industries, tobacco and paper, saw output gains, while apparel, printing and publishing, petroleum products, and leather
had sizable declines.
Mining output decreased 0.3 percent, as a large gain in coal mining was more than offset by substantial
drops in other mining industries, especially the drilling of oil and gas wells.
The factory operating rate fell 0.2 percentage point, to 82.1 percent—its lowest level since October 1996.
The utilization rate for advanced-processing industries decreased 0.2 percentage point, to 80.1 percent—a level just
slightly higher than the rate attained last October. The rate for primary-processing industries decreased 0.3 percentage
point, to 86.5 percent—its lowest level since January 1997. The operating rate at mines decreased 0.4 percentage point,
to 93.6 percent, while the rate at utilities increased 1.2 percentage point, to 88.8 percent.

Explanatory Note
The statistical release of Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization reports
measures of output, capacity, and capacity utilization in manufacturing, mining, and
the electric and gas utilities industries. The release also includes monthly indexes on
the use of electric power in manufacturing and mining. Data in the release and
historical data are available under statistical releases at http://www.bog.frb.fed.11s,
the Board's World Wide Web site. These data are also available on line on the day of
issue through the Economic Bulletin Board of the Department of Commerce. For
information, call (202) 482-1986. Diskettes containing historical data and the data
published in this release are available from the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System, Publications Services, (202) 452-3245.
Industrial

Production

Coverage. The industrial production (IP) index measures output in the
manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities industries; thereferenceperiod
for the index is 1992. For the period since 1992, the total IP index has been
constructed from 264 individual series based on the 1987 Standard Industrial
Classification (SIC). These individual series are classified in two ways: (1) market
groups (shown in table 1), such as consumer goods, equipment, intermediate
products, and materials; and (2) industry groups (shown in tables 2 and 6), such as
two-digit SIC industries and major aggregates of these industries—for example,
durable and nondurable manufacturing, mining, and utilities.
Market groups. For purposes of analysis, the individual IP series are grouped into
fmal 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 comprise fmal and
intermediate products, and final products are divided into consumer goods and
equipment.
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.
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
Department of the Interior, and publications of the Department of Energy. On a
monthly basis, the individual indexes of industrial production are constructed from
two main types of source data: (1) output measured in physical units and (2) data on
inputs to the production process, from which output is inferred. Data on physical
products, such as tons of steel or barrels of oil, are obtained from private trade
associations as well as from government agencies including those listed above; data
of this type are used to estimate monthly IP where possible and appropriate. When
suitable data on physical product are unavailable, estimates of output are based on
either production-worker hours or electric power use by industry. Data on hours
worked by production workers are collected in the monthly establishment survey
conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data on electric power use are
described below. 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; these factors also may be influenced by technological
or cyclical developments. Especially for the first and second estimates for a given
month, the available source data are limited and subject to revision.
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 as an
annually weighted chain-type index since 1977. The components of IP are combined
using estimates of value added per unit of output. For months from January to June,
the weights are drawn from the year containing the month being estimated and the
preceding year; for months from July to December, the weights are drawn from the
current and following year. The IP proportions shown in column 1 of tables 1 A, 2A,
and 6 are estimates of the industries' relative contributions to overall growth in the
following year. For example, a 1 percent increase in durable goods manufacturing in
1997 would account for an increase in total IP of nearly 1/2 percent.

from the first to the fourth estimates was 0.21 percentage point during the 1987-%
period. In most cases (about 81 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. The published percent changes are calculated from unrounded indexes,
and may not be the same as percent changes calculated from the rounded indexes
shown in the release.
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 sustainable 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 76 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 input.
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, mining, utilities, 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. 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 current-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.
Perspective. The historical highs and lows in capacity utilization shown in the tables
above are specific to each series and did not all occur in the same month. Industrial
plants usually operate at capacity utilization rates that are well below 100 percent:
none of the broad aggregates has ever reached 100 percent. For total industry and
total manufacturing, utilization rates have exceeded 90 percent only in wartime.
ElectricP&wer
Data on electric power (expressed in kilowatt hours) are collected by the Federal
Reserve District Banks from electric utilities and also from manufacturing and
mining establishments that generate electric power for their own use (cogenerators).
The indexes of power use shown in table 9 are sums of kilowatt hours used by an
industry or industry group expressed as a percentage of that industry's or group's
usage in 1992. 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 1992 censuses of those industries. The supplementary group, "Total, less nuclear
nondefense," is shown separately because the value-added proportion for the
nondefense nuclear material series (part of SIC 2819) in total IP is considerably
smaller than its share of total electric power use. Excluding this componentfromtotal
power use facilitates comparisons with total IP.
References
The annual revision published in January, including a description of the aggregation
methods for industrial production and capacity utilization, is described in the Federal
Reserve Bulletin, vol. 83 (February 1997), pp. 67-92. In addition, the most recent
revision to the electric power use data is discussed in that article.
Industrial Production—I986 Edition contains a more detailed description of the
other methods used to compile the industrial production index, plus a history of its
development, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography. To obtain Industrial
Production—1986 Edition ($9.00 per copy), write to Board of Governors of the
Federal Reserve System, Publications Services, Washington, DC 20551. The major
revisions to the IP indexes and capacity utilization since 1990 have been described in
the Federal Reserve Bulletin (April 1990, June 1990, June 1993, March 1994,
January 1995, and January 1996). The basic methodology used to estimate capacity
and utilization is discussed in the June 1990 Federal Reserve Bulletin.

Seasonaladjustment Individual series are seasonally adjusted by the X-l 1ARIM A
method, developed at Statistics Canada. For series based on production-worker
hours, the current seasonal factors were estimated with data through October 1996;
for other series, the factors were estimated with data through at least June 1996. In
some cases, series were preadjusted for the effects of holidays or the business cycle
before using X - l l ARIM A. For the data since 1977, all seasonally adjusted
aggregate indexes are calculated by aggregating the seasonally adjusted indexes of
the individual series.
