INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production fell 0.4 percent in April after increasing 0.5 percent in March; industrial capacity
utilization decreased 0.5 percentage point in April to 83.0 percent.
A sharp drop in the production of motor vehicles and parts, affecting both consumer goods and business
equipment, accounted for the April decline in industrial production. Industrial production excluding motor vehicles and
parts was unchanged in April and has shown little movement since January. Total industrial production fell in April to
108.7 percent of its 1987 annual average, about the same as its level a year earlier. The decline in output lowered capacity
utilization 2.0 percentage points below last April's level.
Output of consumer goods declined 1.0 percent in April as production of autos and light tracks fell nearly
14 percent. Apart from autos and trucks, production of durable consumer goods declined 0.7 percent owing mainly to a
\op in output of appliances. The output of nondurable consumer goods remained sluggish in April. Business equipment
production excluding motor vehicles declined slightly in April and has changed little, on balance, since January. Output of
construction supplies dropped sharply in both March and April, retracing the gains posted during the fall and winter months,
Materials output was little changed again in April as increases in paper, chemicals, and coal were about offset by a decline
in production of parts and materials for the motor vehicle industry.

Manufacturing output fell 0.6 percent in April, bringing the factory operating rate down 0 J percentage point to
82*2 percent. Excluding tb.e output of motor vehicles- and parts, manufacturing output declined 0.2 percent. In contrast,
output in mining and at utilities rose significantly in April The increase for mining resulted from gains in oil and gas
extraction and continued strength in coal mining, The operating rate for coal mines reached 943 percent in April, its
highest level in more than a year,
Within manufacturing, capacity utilization in both primary and advanced processing industries fell more than
03 percent in April Operating rates for most industries declined, reflecting widespread weakness in output Aside from
motor vehicles-and parts, the largest drops in utilization in April came in the nonferrous metals and fabricated metals
products industries. Output in both these industries has retreated substantially since the start of 1989: production of
nonferrous metals has fallen nearly 7 percent, bringing its operating rate down to 84 percent, and output of fabricated metals
products has fallen about 4 percent, bringing its utilization rate down to 80 percent Nonetheless, the operating rates for
both are still above their long-tun averages*

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.

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 of a given market or industry group may not be equal to an
aggregation of its seasonally adjusted components.

Industrial Production
Coverage. The industrial production index (IP) measures output in the
manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities industries. The
index's current reference period in which all of the production indexes
equal 100, is 1987. The total IP index is constructed from 250 individual
series. These individual series are aggregated in two ways: 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 industry groups (shown in table 2), 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 die basis for industry classification of IP.

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),V
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.

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.

References. Industrial Production -1986 Edition contains a more detailed
description of the methods used to compile the index, plus a history of its
development, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography. The 1990 revision to
the index is described in Kenneth A. Armitage and Dixon A. Tranum,
"Industrial Production: 1989 Developments and Historical Revision",
Federal Reserve Bulletin, Vol. 76 (April 1990), pp. 187-204.

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.

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 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.

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 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 hour data are collected by the Federal Reserve District Banks from
electric utilities and manufacturing and mining establishments that generate
electric power for their own use (cogenerators). 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.
The available source data are limited and subject to revision, especially for
the first and second output estimates for a given month.

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 weights are used to aggregate the individual
capacity indexes 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.
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. A review of the 1990 revision of capacity and capacity
utilizaton will appear in an article in the June 1990 Federal Reserve
Bulletin,

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 19.1.9, is built in chronological segments that are chainlinked 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 at a different rate
than the total index, its proportion will change over time. Proportions for
the most recent complete year of data are shown in the second column of
tables 1, 2, and 6.

Electrk Power
Electric power (kilowatt hour) data are collected by the Federal Reserve
District Banks from electric utilities and manufacturing and mining
establishments mat generate electric power for their own use
(cogenerators). The index aggregations and detailed components shown in
table 9 are unweighted. 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.
