INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION
Industrial production rose 0.5 percent in October after a downward revised gain of 0.5 percent in September.
The output of consumer goods, business equipment, and durable materials registered solid gains. The output of energy
materials, which had increased sharply in September, was little changed in October, as was the production of construction
supplies. At 122.7 percent of its 1992 average, industrial production in October was 5.6 percent higher than in October
1996. The rate of industrial capacity utilization rose to 84.3 percent— its highest rate since March 1995.
Market Groups
The output of consumer goods rose 0.7 percent after only a slight gain in September. Durable consumer
goods rebounded from September’s drop as most major sectors posted gains. The pickup in the growth of output of
nondurable consumer goods reflected a notable increase in the non-energy sector, which includes food, paper, and
chemical products for home use. The production of consumer energy products rose again. The output of business

equipment, which increased nearly 15 percent at an annual rate in the third quarter, rose 0.8 percent. Continued strength
in the production of information processing equipment, which includes computers, along with a rebound in industrial
equipment accounted for much of the gain. The output of transit equipment, which has been growing rapidly, on balance,
for more than a year, slipped a bit; a decrease in the production of aircraft contributed to the decline. The output of
materials rose 0.5 percent as durable materials posted another strong gain. The production of parts for high-technology
equipment continues to lead the advance in the output of durable materials. The output of nondurable materials, which
posted another small gain in the third quarter, advanced a little further last month. The production of energy materials
eased off a bit, as electricity generation was nearly unchanged and the production of crude oil and coal declined.
Industry Groups
Manufacturing output rose 0.6 percent with widespread gains in both the durables and nondurables
industries. The growth of output in the durable goods industries, 0.7 percent, was led by increases in industrial
machinery and computers, electrical machinery, and instruments. Output changes among the remaining durable goods
industries were relatively small. The production of nondurable goods rose 0.5 percent, with gains in most major
industries.
.
The factory operating rate rose 0.2 percentage point, to 83.3 percent, about the same as the August level.
The utilization rate for advanced-processing industries increased 0.3 percentage point to 81.6 percent, a level well below
the recent high of 84.2 percent, in January 1989. The rate for primary processing edged up 0.1 percentage point to
87.2 percent, but has changed little, on balance, since last March.

NOTICE
The Federal Reserve will publish revisions of its measures of industrial production (IP), capacity,
capacity utilization, and industrial use of electric power on December 9,1997. The revisions will begin with data for
1992 and will incorporate updated source data for recent years.
The regular updating of source data for IP will include annual data from the 1995 Annual Survey of
Manufactures of the Bureau of the Census and from selected 1996 Current Industrial Reports of the Bureau of the
Census. Annual data from the Department of the Interior on metallic and nonmetallic minerals (except fuels) for 1995
and 1996 will also be introduced. Revisions to the monthly indicators for each industry (physical product data,
production-worker hours, or electric power usage) and revised seasonal factors will be incorporated. Capacity and
capacity utilization will be revised to incorporate preliminary data from the 1995/96 Survey of Plant Capacity of the
Bureau of the Census. The statistics on the industrial use of electric power will incorporate more complete reports
received from utilities for the past few years as well as data from the 1995 Annual Survey of Manufactures.
Once the revision is published, the revised data will be available on the Board’s World Wide Web site
(http://www.bog.frb.fed.us) and on diskettes from Publications Services, 202-452-3245. The revised data will also be
available through the Economic Bulletin Board of the Department of Commerce; for information about the Bulletin
Board, call 202-482-1986. For information on these revisions, call the Board’s Industrial Output Section, 202-452-3197.

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 fora 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
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 1of tables 1A, 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.
Seasonal adjustment. Individual series are seasonally adjusted by the X-l 1ARIMA
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—11 ARIMA. For the data since 1977, all seasonally adjusted
aggregate indexes are calculated by aggregating the seasonally adjusted indexes of
the individual series.
Reliability. The average revision to the level of the total IP index, without regard to
sign, between the first and the fourth estimates was 0.28 percent during the 1987-96
period. The average revision to the percent change in total IP, without regard to sign,




18

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 esti mate.
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 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 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.
