INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production increased 0.2 percent in May, the same rate as the revised gains for March and April; the
average monthly increase from October through February was about 0.7 percent. At 110.4 percent of its 1987 annual
average, total industrial production was 3.5 percent above its year-ago level. Utilization of industrial capacity, at
81.6 percent, has been little changed since February.
Market Groups
The output of durable consumer goods declined 1 percent, as assemblies of motor vehicles fell back and the
production of other durable consumer goods, on balance, was unchanged. Overall, the production of consumer durables,
which rose strongly at the end of last year, has changed little since January. The output of nondurable consumer goods
increased 0.2 percent in May, a move reflecting gains in the output of consumer chemicals. Production of business
equipment rose 0.3 percent, a much weaker advance than in March and April. The output of industrial equipment and
computers continued to climb, but production of other business equipment weakened. The production of transit equipment

fell more than 1-1/2 percent; the output of other equipment, which increased rapidly from February to April, was little
changed. Within intermediate products, construction supplies showed widespread increases and rose 0.7 percent, a rebound
from its declines in the previous two months. The output of products has shown little change over the past two months, but
the production of industrial materials increased 0.4 percent in April and 0.3 percent in May. Gains in the production of
computer-related parts and in iron and steel led the advance of 0.5 percent in the output of durable goods materials. The
output of nondurable goods materials rose 0.2 percent, as chemical materials strengthened and paper materials weakened.
Energy materials edged down because of a strike in coal mining.
Industry Groups
Production in manufacturing increased 0.2 percent in May; excluding motor vehicles, the gain was 0.3 percent.
Capacity utilization in manufacturing was unchanged at 80.8 percent, a level about 1/2 percentage point below its
1967-92 average. Production gains in many areas pushed the utilization in primary processing industries up 0.2 percentage
point, to 84.3 percent, about 2 percentage points above its long run average; operating rates in lumber, steel, and textiles
were above their long run averages. The utilization rate at advanced processing industries, on balance, was unchanged. At
79.4 percent, the utilization rate for this group of industries was still below its 1967-92 average.
Output at mines increased 0.5 percent, despite the strike-related decline in coal production, because of increased
extraction of crude oil and sharp gains in oil and gas well drilling. Output at utilities, which has been quite volatile in recent
months, declined 0.3 percent in May; over the past year, production at utilities has risen about 2 percent.

NOTICE
Last month's G.17 (419) statistical release carried revised Federal Reserve indexes of industrial production and rates of
capacity utilization. Revised statistics date from 1986.
Points of information:
® The revisions primarily reflect (1) conversion of all of the indexes from 1987 forward to the 1987 Standard
Industrial Classification and (2) the incorporation of more comprehensive annual and monthly source data, where
available, for the same period. The number of individual series in the revised index (255), and the value added
weighted proportion based on physical product data (39 percent) remain about the same. The release now includes
more detail on foods, textiles, lumber, fabricated metal products, machinery, and gas utilities. On the other hand, the
timeliness or quality of several monthly series obtained from other agencies or sources deteriorated, and detailed series
on regional crude oil production, hosiery, clay products, and nonferrous metal production are no longer published.
@ The revisions to the indexes of industrial production and the rates of capacity utilization are reviewed in an article in
. the June 1993 Federal Reserve Bulletin.
@ A copy of the structure and series composition of the 1993 index of industrial production is available upon written
request to Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Division of Research and Statistics, Industrial Output
Section, Mail Stop 82, Washington, DC 20551.
• Hardcopy of the revised estimates of series shown in this release is also available upon written request to the
Industrial Output Section at the address above.
® 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, at (202) 452-3245.
@ Data shown in this release are available on the day of issue through the on-line Economic Bulletin Board of the

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 at (202) 377-3870. 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 buisiness cycle before using X - l l 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.

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), forthcoming.

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), forthcoming.

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). c
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.
