INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production edged up 0.1 percent in July after an upward revised gain of 0.6 percent in June. A
4.3 percent gain in the output of motor vehicles and parts was mostly offset by a 1.8 percent decrease in the output of
utilities in July; output in other categories was unchanged, on balance. The gain in the production of motor vehicles and
parts was led by an increase in car and truck assemblies to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 13.4 million units; the
decrease at utilities reflected cooler-than-normal weather on the East Coast. At 126.2 percent of its 1987 average, total
industrial production in July was 3.8 percent higher than it was in July 1995. Industrial capacity utilization decreased
0.2 percentage point, to 83.2 percent.
Market Groups
The production of consumer goods increased 0.3 percent because of the strength in the output of automotive
products. The production of other durable consumer goods edged down 0.1 percent, and the output of nondurable

consumer goods decreased 0.3 percent. Apart from a drop in the residential use of electricity, the output of nondurables
was little changed: Production gains in chemical and paper products were offset by declines in foods, tobacco, and fuels.
The output of business equipment increased 0.5 percent. The gain in motor vehicle assemblies boosted the
output of transit equipment, but the production of other types of transit equipment was little changed. The output of
industrial equipment declined 0.2 percent, its fifth consecutive monthly decrease. This string of declines is the most
pronounced cumulative drop in this grouping since 1991. Despite a 1.7 percent rise in the production of computers and
office equipment, the output of information processing equipment edged up only 0.2 percent; the production of some
types of communications equipment and instruments fell. The output of construction supplies held steady after
increasing substantially in the preceding two months; the production of goods in this grouping has risen 5.2 percent
during the past twelve months.
The output of industrial materials edged up despite the drop in electricity generation. The output of durable
goods materials advanced 0.4 percent, reflecting gains in computer parts and semiconductors. A rebound in paper and
paperboard production helped the output of nondurable goods materials post a 0.2 percent increase.
Industry Groups
Manufacturing production increased 0.3 percent; excluding motor vehicles and parts, the gain was
0.1 percent. Although the output of durable goods advanced 0.6 percent, the gain was concentrated in electrical
machinery and in office and computing equipment in addition to motor vehicles and parts. The production indexes for
lumber, furniture, primary metals, instruments, miscellaneous manufactures, and stone, clay, and glass products declined
1/2 percent or more. The output of nondurable goods edged down 0.1 percent. Among nondurable goods, only the paper
and products industry posted more than negligible gains; the output of food, tobacco, apparel, petroleum products, and
leather and products fell 1/2 percent or more. Mining output decreased 0.3 percent.
The factory capacity utilization rate held steady at 82.3 percent. The operating rate for the
advanced-processing grouping edged up 0.1 percentage point, to 80.7 percent, but the rate for the primary-processing
grouping fell 0.3 percentage point, to 86.2 percent. Capacity utilization in manufacturing is little changed from its level a
year ago. As was the case a year ago, the rate for advanced-processing industries stood at its 1967-95 average in July.
The rate for primary-processing industries has slipped 0.5 percentage point since July 1995, but it remains 3.6 percentage
points above its long-run average. The operating rate for mining decreased 0.2 percentage point in July, and the rate for
utilities fell 1.9 percentage points; rates for both of these sectors remain more than 3 percentage points above their
1967-95 averages.

1996 Annual Revision of Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization
During the fourth quarter, the Federal Reserve will publish revisions of its measures of industrial
production (IP), capacity, capacity utilization, and industrial use of electric power; the current target month
for the release is November. The revisions of IP, capacity, and capacity utilization will incorporate updated
source data for recent years and will feature a change in the method of aggregating the indexes. From 1977
onward, the value-added proportions used to weight individual series will be updated annually rather than
quinquennially. In addition, the IP indexes and the capacity measures will be rebased so that 1992 actual
output equals 100. Capacity utilization, the ratio of IP to capacity, will be recomputed on the basis of revised
IP and capacity measures.
The aggregate IP indexes will be constructed with a superlative index formula similar to that
introduced by the Bureau of Economic Analysis as the featured measure of real output in its January 1996
comprehensive revision of the National Income and Product Accounts. At present, the aggregate IP indexes
are computed as linked Laspeyres indexes, with the weights updated every five years. Because of the rapid
fall in the relative price of computers and peripheral equipment, that periodic updating of weights is too
infrequent to provide reliable estimates of current changes in output, capacity, and capacity utilization. With
the publication of the revision, value added proportions will be updated annually, and the new index number
formula will be applied to all aggregates of IP, capacity, and gross value of product. For the most part,
relative price movements among the 260 individual components of the IP index are likely to have little visible
effect on total IP. However, the more frequent updating of the relative price of the output of the computer
industry could lower overall IP growth in some years by as much as 1/2 percentage point; in other years, the
updating of weights will have virtually no effect. Because the new index number formula will slow capacity
growth as well as IP growth, the effect of the reaggregation on overall capacity utilization should be small.
The regular updating of source data for IP will include the introduction of annual data from the
1994 Annual Survey of Manufactures and selected 1995 Current Industrial Reports of the Bureau of the
Census. Available annual data on mining for 1994 and 1995 from the Department of the Interior will also be
introduced. Revisions to the monthly indicators for each industry (physical product data, production worker
hour, or electric power usage) and revised seasonal factors will be incorporated back to 1992.
The statistics on the industrial use of electric power will be revised back to 1972. These
revisions stem from three basic sources. First, the new figures incorporate more complete reports received
from utilities for the past few years. Second, an updated panel of reporters on cogeneration will be fully
integrated into our survey of electric power use. Third, the levels of the monthly electric power series for
manufacturing industries will be benchmarked to indexes derived from data published in the Census Bureau's
annual surveys and censuses of manufactures. These indexes will also be revised so that 1992 electric power
usage equals 100.
More detail on the plans for this revision is available on the Internet at
http://www.bog.frb.fed.us, the Board's World Wide Web site. Once the revision is published, the revised
dam wiii be available at thai site and on diskettes from the Board of Governors of the Feucial Resei vc
System, Publication Services, 202-452-3245. The revised data will also be available through the Economic
Bulletin Board of the Department of Commerce; for information about the Bulletin Board, call 202-482-1986.
In addition to the data currently provided, the time series of implicit prices necessary for a user to aggregate
IP and capacity under the new methodology will be provided. For information on these revisions, call the
Industrial Output Section at 202-452-3151.

Explanatory Note
The statistical release of Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization reports
measures of output, capacity, and capacity utilization in manufacturing, mining, ana
the electric and gas utilities industries. It also includes survey data on the use of
electric power in manufacturing and mining. Data in the release are 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. For the period since
1992. the total IP index has been constructed from 260 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
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 nonindustriai sectors, such as
construction, agriculture, and services. Materials are industrial output requiring
further processing within the industrial sector Total products comprise final and
intermediate products, and final products are divided into consumer goods and
equipment.
riming. The first estimate of output for a month is published around the 15th ot 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 Sun'ey of Manufactures.
prepared by the Bureau of the Census; the Minerals Yearbook, prepared by the
Bureau ot Mines: and publications of the Department of Energy. On a monthly basis,
the individual indexes of industrial production are constructed from two main types
ot source data: (I) 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 wcli 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 hv 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 in
chronological segments that are linked together 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 1992 to the present. IP is
aggregated on the basis of 1992 value-added weights. The aggregation of the index
for the 1987-91 period is based on 1987 weights, whereas 1982 weights are used for

period. In most cases (about 82 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.

description of the methods used to compile the 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

and 1993 revisions to the index were described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol.
76 (April 1990). pp. 187-204 and vol. 79 (June 1993). pp. 590-605. respectively.
Two revisions were published in 1994 and were described in the Federal Reserve
Bulletin, vol. 80 (March 1994). pp. 220-6 and vol. 81 (January 1995), pp. 16-26. The
annual revision published in November 1995 was described in the Federal Reserve
Bulletin, vol. 82 (January 1996). pp. 16-25.

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 o( 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 o\' inputs to
operate the machinery and equipment in place. The 75 individual capacity indexes
are based on a variety of data, including capacity data measured in physical units
complied 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 fora variety of groups,
including primary and advanced processing industries within manufacturing.
durable and nondurable manufacturing, total manufacturing, mining, utilities, and
total industry. Component industries ot the primary and advanced processing groups
within manufacturing are listed in the note on tables 2 and 3 of the release.
Weights. Value-added proportions are used to weight the individual capacity
indexes in aggregations in the same manner as individual IP series are aggregated to
the tola! index o! 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 ot 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 tor 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 arc specific to each scries 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.
References. The basic methodology used to estimate capacity and utilization is
discussed in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 71 (October 1985), pp. 754-66. The
1990 and 1993 revisions were described in the Federal Resen'e Bulletin, vol. 76
(June 1990). pp. 412-35 and vol. 79 (June 1993). pp. 590-605, respectively. Two
revisions were published in 1994 and were described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin.
vol. 80 (March 1994), pp. 220-6 and vol. 81 (January 1995). pp. 16-26. The annual
revision published in Novennber 1995 was described in the Federal Resen'e Bulletin
vol. 82 (January 1996), pp. 16-25.

Electric Power
Data on electric power (expressed in kilowatt hours) are collected by the Federal
Reserve District Banks from electric utilities and also from manufacturing and
illiniriii CSICILM iSniYiCiiL.!^ iiicit ^Cncitiic uit^ciiic LJVJVVL-I IAM LIIV~-II LJWII LJ^>C \c\JiiCiici dioi ^ /.

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 1987. 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 value-added proportion for the
nondefense nuclear material series (pan of SIC 2819) in totai 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, developed at Statistics Canada. For series based on production-worker
hours, the current seasonal factors were estimated with data through October 1995:
for other series, the factors were estimated with data through at least June 1995. In
some cases, series were preadjusted for the effects of holidays or the business cycle
before using X-Il ARIMA. The 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.
