G.17 (419)
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production rose 0.7 percent in December, following a gain of 0.9 percent in November. For the fourth
quarter as a whole, total output advanced at an annual rate of 7.5 percent. Continuing the pattern begun in September,
December's growth was boosted by developments in the motor vehicles and parts industry, where production grew
4.9 percent for the month and has increased approximately 25 percent since August. Excluding motor vehicles and parts,
industrial production grew 0.5 percent in December, about the same as November's increase; this gain reflected continued
growth in the output of construction supplies, durable goods materials, and business equipment. At 114.0 percent of its 1987
average, industrial production in December was 4.6 percent above its level a year ago. Reflecting the sustained strong
growth in output, the utilization of total industrial capacity rose 0.5 percentage point in December after having increased
0.7 percentage point in November. Capacity utilization at the end of 1993 stood at 83.5 percent, 2.5 percentage points above
its year-ago level but still below its most recent 1988-89 peak.

Market Groups
The output of consumer goods was pushed up by another sizable gain in automotive products. However, the
output of other consumer durable goods, such as appliances, eased in December after two months of strong growth. Despite
last month's decline, the production of consumer durables excluding automotive products grew at an annual rate of more
than 6 percent during the fourth quarter. The output of nondurables remained sluggish: The output of clothing and consumer
paper products continued to be weak, and the production of consumer fuels, mainly gasoline, declined sharply last month.
The rapid expansion in the output of business equipment since August continued in December, led by strong
gains in motor vehicles and computers. The production of most other categories of business equipment, except commercial
aircraft, also increased.
Among materials, another sharp rise in the output of durables in December was driven largely by sizable
increases in the production of semiconductors and parts for motor vehicles. However, the production of nondurable goods
materials declined slightly, as the output of chemical materials rose but the output of paper materials declined. The output of
energy materials expanded 0.8 percent, with coal, crude oil, and utilities production all up noticeably. Nevertheless,
production for this market group was down about 1 percent from its December 1992 level.
Industry Groups
Manufacturing output expanded 0.7 percent in December after a gain of 1.1 percent in November. Production
by manufacturers of durable goods grew 1.3 percent, with particularly strong increases recorded by the iron and steel,
nonelectrical machinery, and motor vehicles and parts industries. By contrast, output of nondurable goods manufacturers
declined 0.2 percent on a broad front; food, apparel, paper, printing and publishing, and petroleum all posted lower output
for the month. The output at utilities rose 1.0 percent, and the output of mines increased 0.5 percent.
Manufacturing capacity utilization increased 0.4 percentage point in December to 82.7 percent. Rising
utilization in durable goods manufacturing has accounted for all of the increase in the factory utilization rate over the past
two months. Increases in utilization have been particularly sharp in primary metals and in motor vehicles and parts. By
contrast, the utilization rate in nondurables manufacturing declined 0.2 percentage point.

NOTICE
Revised indexes of industrial production and rates of capacity utilization will be published in the G.17 (419)
statistical release in February 1994. Revised production statistics will begin in 1991 and revised capacity
utilization statistics will begin in 1990.
Points of information
• The revisions to production primarily reflect the incorporation of more comprehensive monthly source data,
review of the production factor coefficients, and updated seasonal factors.
• The revisions to capacity utilization will reflect improved estimates of capital stocks and preliminary results
from the Census Survey of Plant Capacity for 1991 and 1992.
• Diskettes containing the revised data will be available on the day of release from the Board of Governors of
the Federal Reserve System, Publications Services, at (202) 452-3245.

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. 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
1987, the total IP index has been constructed from 255 individual series based on the
1987 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC). These individual series are classified
and grouped in 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 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 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. Data on physical products, such as
tons of steel or barrels of oil, are obtained from private trade associations as well as
from the government agencies 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
kilowatt hours. Data on hours worked by production workers are collected in the
monthly establishment survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data
on kilowatt hours 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, whereas 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, in the "1987" column under
the heading "Proportion in total IP." 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, in the column headed by the most recent year under the heading
"Proportion in total IP."
Seasonal adjustment Individual series are seasonally adjusted by the X-l 1ARIMA
method, developed at Statistics Canada. The current seasonal factors are based on
data through October 1992. In some cases, series were preadjusted for the effects of
holidays or the business cycle before using X—11 ARIMA. The major market and
industry groups are seasonally adjusted directly; as a result, the seasonally adjusted
value of a given market or industry group may not be equal to an aggregation of its
seasonally adjusted components. The seasonally adjusted total index is calculated by



18

aggregating the seasonally adjusted major market groups, and may not precisely
equal an aggregation of the seasonally adjusted industry groups.
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 0.35 percent during the 1972-92 period. The average revision
to the percent change in total IP, without regard to sign, from the first to the fourth
estimates was 0.26 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.

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
Federal Reserve System, Publications Services, Washington, DC 20551. The 1990
revision to the index is described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 76 (April
1990), pp. 187-204. The 1993 revision to the index is described in the Federal
Reserve Bulletin, vol. 79 (June 1993), pp. 590-605.

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 75 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 the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 71 (October 1985), pp. 754-66. The
1990 revision of capacity and capacity utilization is described in the Federal Reserve
Bulletin, vol. 76 (June 1990), pp. 412-35, and the 1993 revision is described in the
Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 79 (June 1993), pp. 590-605.
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
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. 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
