INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production dropped 0.9 percent in January, after falling 0.4 percent in December. The decline in
January was broadly based, although the most significant loss occurred in the motor vehicles and parts industry, where
output declined about 8 percent. At 106.7 percent of its 1987 annual average, total industrial production in January was
about even with its year-ago level. Total industrial capacity utilization dropped 0.8 percentage point in January to
78.0 percent.
Market Groups
Production of consumer goods fell 0.7 percent in January, owing mainly to the drop in motor vehicle
production. Output of consumer goods other than automotive products also edged down in January. Production of business
equipment other than motor vehicles again drifted down in January, owing to further weakness in industrial equipment.
Continued retrenchments by manufacturers of defense and space equipment and oil and gas well drillers also contributed to
the overall decrease in equipment production. Production of construction supplies declined a bit in each of the past two
months; materials output dropped sharply in January for the third consecutive month. While production of energy materials

Average
1967-91

flattened out in January after falling rapidly in November and December, output of both durable and nondurable materials
fell by more than 1 percent last month. While these declines were widespread, reductions in output of parts and supplies for
the motor vehicle industry and in paper were the most noticeable.
Industry Groups
Manufacturing production fell 1.0 percent in January, after declining 1/2 percent over the last two months of
1991. The factory operating rate dropped to 77.0 percent in January, its lowest level since August 1983. The slack in
utilization is especially evident in advanced processing industries, where the operating rate in January fell to 75.9 percent,
5 percentage points below its 1967 to 1991 average and about 1 percentage point below its low in March 1991. In recent
months, the decline in advanced processing has mainly resulted from cutbacks in motor vehicle production, where the
operating rate in January was still 4 percentage points above its level in March 1991. Unlike motor vehicle production,
output of instruments, electrical and nonelectrical machinery, and aerospace and miscellaneous transportation equipment
never recovered significantly last spring and summer, and their operating rates in January were below their levels last
March. The utilization for primary processing declined for a third consecutive month in January; paper, industrial
chemicals, and stone, clay and glass products have been the largest contributors to this recent decline. Nonetheless, in
contrast to advanced processing, utilization for primary processing industries was only 2-1/2 percentage points below its
long ran average in January, and was still above its level last March.
Outside manufacturing, mining output decreased 0.2 percent in January, despite a 2-1/2 percent increase in
coal mining. Utilities output fell 0.4 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. Hie 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.
M arket 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 nonindustnsi 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 of tables 1,2, and 6.
Seasonal adjustm ent. 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 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 industiy 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
aggregat*on 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 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.

Capacity Utilization
Definition. Capacity utilization is calculated for the manufacturing, mining, and
electric and gas utilities industries. Fora 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 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 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 mining,
manufacturing, and utilities as a whole, and for total 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, ’’Recent Developments in Industrial Capacity and Utilization,” Federal
Reserve Bulletin, vol. 76 (Jime 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 reported by manufacturing and mining industries in the
1987 censuses of those industries except for the components in group 2819, which
are estimates. 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 IR
