INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION
Industrial production rose 0.4 percent in February, the fifth consecutive monthly gain. The February gain in
production was slightly below the upward revised 0.5 percent rise in January and equalled the revised gain in December.
Although motor vehicle assemblies decreased more than 2 percent in February, increases in other components pushed up
manufacturing output 0.3 percent for the month. In addition, the output of utilities, which had been held down in January by
relatively warm weather, rebounded sharply last month. However, mining output weakened in February because of
reductions in oil and gas extraction and a coal mining strike.
At 111.8 percent of its 1987 average, total industrial production in February was 4.3 percent above its year-ago
level. Total industrial capacity utilization increased 0.2 percentage point in February, to 79.9 percent, the highest rate since
September 1991.
Market Groups
The output of consumer goods rose about 0.6 percent in February. Along with the rise in the production of
residential utilities, a sharp pickup in the output of appliances and gains in the production of consumer fuels contributed

notably to the overall improvement; the deerease in motor vehicle output partly offset those increases. Production of
business equipment other than motor vehicles increased 0.5 percent in February. Strong increases in the output of
information processing equipment led the way again in February, rising 0.8 percent. The production of construction supplies
picked up 0.7 percent in February, although, on balance, it has only increased slowly since fall. The output of materials
increased 0.5 percent in February. The production of energy materials picked up, a move reflecting the gain in utilities. The
output of both durable and nondurable materials strengthened, with significant increases in the production of industrial
chemicals and equipment parts, particularly those related to computers.
Industry Groups
Within manufacturing, the output of durable goods rose 0.4 percent in February, while the production of
nondurable goods increased 0.2 percent. The gain in the production of durables was concentrated in a few industries.
Output of electrical and nonelectrical machinery, furniture, and stone, clay and glass products all increased 1 percent or
more. Along with the continued weakness in aircraft manufacturing and the dip in motor vehicle production, lower output of
lumber, steel, and instruments held down the increase in durables. Among nondurables, production of petroleum products,
chemicals, and leather products all rose significantly.
Capacity utilization in manufacturing increased 0.1 percentage point in February, to 78.9 percent. The gain
reflected further increases in utilization at primary processing industries; the operating rate for advanced processing
industries was unchanged. The utilization rate for primary processing industries now stands at 83.0 percent, 0.7 percent
above its 1967-92 average. By contrast, the operating rate for advanced processing industries remains more than
3 percentage points below its long-run average. Few advanced processing industries are operating at or above their long-run
utilization rate, with the largest shortfalls occurring in aerospace and miscellaneous transportation equipment, instruments,
apparel, and printing and publishing.

NOTICE
A revision to the industrial production and capacity utilization indexes will be
available with the release of the March indexes on April 16, 1993.
The revisions primarily reflect conversion of the indexes from 1987 forward
to the 1987 Standard Industrial Classification and the incorporation of more
comprehensive annual and monthly source data, where available, for the same period.
Information on definitional and other modifications to the structure and composition of the
indexes, which are not extensive, will be provided at the time of the release.
A diskette containing the data published in this release is available from the
Publications section of the Federal Reserve Board (202-452-3245).

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 o f
Manufactures and M ineral Industries and the Annual Survey o f Manufactures ,
prepared by the Bureau of the Census; the M inerals 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 adjustment. Individual series are seasonally adjusted by the X -l 1 Arima
Method, which was developed at Statistics Canada. Individual series and major
aggregates are seasonally adjusted independently. Seasonal factors for the aggregate
series are based on data through 1991. Seasonal factors for the individual series are
based on data through at least 1988, but many have been reestimated with much more
recent data. 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



18

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.

A. Tranum, ’’Industrial Production: 1989 Developments and Historical Revision”,
Federal Reserve Bulletin , Vol. 76 (April 1990), pp. 187-204.
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 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 (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 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.
