G.17 (419)
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production increased 0.3 percent in June, about the same pace as in the previous three months.
The production of motor vehicles rebounded sharply in Junefromthe strike-reduced levels of AprU and May. Continued
strength in commercial aircraft and the high-technology sector again contributed importantly to the growth of output. As
more seasonal weather returned, output at utilities increased 0.4 percent; output at mines was unchanged. For the second
quarter as a whole, industrial production grew 4.3 percent at an annual rate, about the same as in the previous two
quarters. At 119.9 percent of its 1992 average, industrial production in June was 3.8 percent higher than it was in June
1996—more than half of this increase reflects gains in computers, semiconductors, and commercial aircraft and parts.
The rate of industrial capacity utilization was unchanged, at 83.5 percent.

Market Groups
Paced by another sharp increase in the production of durable consumer goods, the overall output of
consumer goods rose 0.3 percent; the production of nondurable consumer goods was unchanged. Among durables, the

output of consumer motor vehicles rose 4.0 percent to near its pre-strike (March) level. The production of appliances and
home computing equipment also posted strong increases. The production of nondurable consumer goods other than
energy products was flat and little changed from its level in March; gains in clothing and in paper products were offset by
declines in foods and tobacco and in consumer chemical products. The output of consumer energy products was also
little changed, with a small gain in residential electricity sales largely offset by a small loss in fuels.
The output of business equipment rose 0.8 percent, and that of defense and space equipment also posted a
strong gain. The growth in business equipment was led by the rebound in business vehicles and by further strong
increases in the output of information processing equipment and of commercial aircraft. However, the production of
industrial equipment and of other equipment, both of which had declined noticeably in May, slipped again in June; even
so, the output indexes for both sectors remained above March levels.
The output of construction supplies fell 0.4 percent, reversing part of the May increase; as a result, the June
index for this market group is now more than 1 percent below its peak in March, but it is still above its average level for
the fourth quarter of last year. The production of materials edged up 0.1 percent, led by another gain in the output of
durable goods materials. Among the components of durable materials, the output of equipment parts, particularly
semiconductors, rose sharply, and the production of parts for consumer durables, mainly for motor vehicles, also
increased. Energy materials fell 0.3 percent, with a large decrease in coal production more than offsetting increases in
electricity generation and sales. The output of nondurable goods materials slipped 0.2 percent.

industry groups
Manufacturing output increased 0.3 percent after identical increases in April and May. Excluding motor
vehicles and parts, the output in manufacturing rose 0.2 percent, or about half the rate recorded during the previous two
months. As in the past few months, much of the strength in manufacturing reflects the increased output of durable goods;
the production of nondurables remains little changed from the end of last year. Gains were widespread within the durable
goods sector, with only the furniture and primary metals industries declining appreciably. Increases were especially
strong in electrical machinery and transportation equipment. The production of nondurables was flat—gains in the
apparel, printing, and petroleum products industries were offset by declines in the rest of the sector, especially tobacco,
paper, and leather and products.
Mining output was flat, with another big gain in oil and gas well drilling offset by a large drop in coal
mining; utility output increased.
The factory operating rate edged down 0.1 percentage point, to 82.5 percent, the same level as in December
1996. The utilization rate for advanced-processing industries remained at 80.5 percent, which is slightly below its
long-term average. The rate for primary-processing industries, which had risen 0.3 percentage point in May, fell back
0.4 percentage point, to 87.0 percent, well below its recent high of 89.6 percent in December 1994; the operating rates for
all primary-processing industries fell. The operating rate at mines decreased 0.1 percentage point, to 94.5 percent, while
the rate at utilities increased 0.2 percentage point, to 87.1 percent.
Note: This release contains revised estimates of capacity for selected industries for March through December 1997. The
revision increased the estimated growth of aggregate capacity 0.2 percentage point between December 1996 and
December 1997.

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.us,
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; the reference period
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
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 comprise 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, prepare*3 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 1987-96
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 kdexes 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.
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 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 component from total
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—1986 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.

Seasonaiadjustment 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.
