INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production rose 0.4 percent in November, with the increase of 0.5 percent in October, therisehas
more than offset the declines of late summer. The most significant increases in the broadly based November advance were
in nondurable materials and information processing equipment. At 109.7 percent of its 1987 annual average, total industrial
production in November was 1.5 percent above its year-ago level. Total industrial capacity utilization rose another
0.2 percentage point in November, to 78.9 percent.
Market Groups
The November rise in the output of durable consumer goods, led by gains in motor vehicles and furniture, was
0.3 percent; the increase in the production of nondurable consumer goods was also 0.3 percent. The output of business
equipment grew 0.6 percent in November. Within business equipment, the production of information processing equipment
rose nearly 1 percent, after an increase of 1.7 percent in October, as the output of computers continued to climb. The
manufacture of industrial equipment also posted noticeable gains in November, while the production of defense and space

equipment continued to drop. The overall output of transit equipment fell as a continued decline in the production of
commercial aircraft and equipment more than offset increases in the output of vehicles for business use. The production of
construction supplies advanced again, a move partly reflecting gains in the output of lumber. Materials output grew
0.5 percent in November, the production of nondurable goods materials jumped 1.6 percent, with notable gains in the output
of paper, textiles, and chemicals.
Industry Groups
Output in manufacturing increased 0.5 percent in November, the October growth rate was 0.6 percent. Factory
utilization rose 0.2 percentage point in November to 77.9 percent, a level about the same as the levels in the second and
third quarters. Gains in operating rates over the past two months have been the strongest in primary processing industries,
where utilization has increased more than 1 percentage point since September. Utilization rates for lumber and products,
petroleum products, primary metals, rubber and plastics products, fabricated metal products, and primary processing
chemicals have all increased nearly 1 percentage point or more. In the past two months, utilization at advanced processing
industries has increased 0.3 percentage point: The rates for motor vehicles and parts, miscellaneous manufactures,
nonelectrical machinery, furniture and fixtures, and advanced processing chemicals have posted gains of 1 percent or more
since September, but utilization rates in printing and publishing and in the aerospace industry have fallen sharply.
In November, output at mines, boosted by gains in oil and gas well drilling, rose 0.6 percent. Production at
utilities declined 0.6 percent.

Explanatory Note
The 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. Data shown the release are available on the day of issue
through the Department of Commerce's online Economic Bulletin Board
(202-377-3870). Historical data are available on magnetic tape from the National
Technical Information Service (703-487-4650).
Industrial Production
Coverage. The industrial production index (IP) measures output in the manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities industries. The total IP index is constructed
from 250 individual series. These individual series are classified and grouped two
ways: 1) 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 2) industry groups (shown in tables 2 and 6), 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.
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.
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 Bureau of
Mines; 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. 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
hours data 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 (censuses, annual surveys, and the
like); 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 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 faster (slower) than the total index after 1987,
its current proportion will rise (fall). Proportions for the most recent complete year of
data are shown in the second column oftables 1,2, and 6.
Seasonal adjustment. Individual series are seasonally adjusted by the X - l l 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 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.

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 unrounded
indexes, and may not be the same as percent changes calculated from the rounded
indexes shown in the release.

glossary of terms, and a bibliography. To obtain Industrial Production -1986 Edition at a price of $9.00 per copy, write to Publication Services, Mail Stop 138, Board
of Governorsof the Federal Reserve System,Washington,D.C. 20551. The 1990revision to the index is described in Kenneth Armitage and Dixon A. Tranum, "Industrial Production: 1989 Developments and Historical Revision", Federal Reserve Bulletin, Vol. 76 (April 1990), pp. 187-204.
Capacity Utilisation
Definition. Capacity utilization is calculated for the manufacturing, mining, and
electric and gas utilities industries. For a given industry, the utilization rate i s 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 aplant 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.
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 proportions are used to weight the individual capacity indexes in aggregations 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 fortotal 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 mining, manufacturing, and utilities as a whole, and fortotal manufacturing, utilization rates as high as 90
percent have been exceeded only in wartime.
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. The 1990 revision of capacity and capacity utilizaton is described in Richard D.Raddock, decent
Developments in Industrial Capacity and Utilization," Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol.
76 (June 1990), pp. 412-35.
Electric Power
Electric power (kilowatt hour) data 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 1987. The first column of the table shows, for reference, electric power use in billions of kilowatt hours
as rerwrted 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.
