INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production was unchanged in September following an increase of 0.7 percent in August. In
September, disruptions associated with a strike and with temporary parts shortages contributed to a decrease in the output
of motor vehicles and parts. However, output excluding motor vehicles edged up 0.1 percent, led by another sizable
increase in the output of business equipment.
At 118.7 percent of its 1987 average, industrial production in September was 6.7 percent higher than a year
earlier. Output rose at a 6.0 percent annual rate in the third quarter, up from a 5.4 percent annual rate in the second
quarter. In September, industrial capacity utilization dropped back 0.2 percentage point to 84.6 percent.
Market Groups
Largely as a result of the decline in assemblies of cars and trucks, the index of output of durable consumer
goods fell 1.3 percent. In addition, the production of appliances, which had risen sharply earlier in the summer, moved
down for a second month. The output of nondurable consumer goods has changed little in recent months. Business

equipment other than cars and trucks rose 0.9 percent last month, about the same as the average monthly gain evident so
far this year; much of the ongoing strength in this sector has occurred in information processing equipment, particularly
computers, and in industrial equipment.
The output of construction supplies, after posting stronger gains in July and August than previously
reported, is estimated to have declined a bit in September; for the quarter as a whole, production in this sector rose about
5-1/2 percent at an annual rate, as compared with an 11-1/2 percent gain in the second quarter. Materials output, which
surged nearly 1 percent in August, was unchanged in September. The production of durables continued to increase;
however the September gain of 0.3 percent was smaller than in the preceding two months, largely because of the drop in
output of motor vehicle parts. Production of nondurables eased a bit last month after a sizable jump in August, and
output of energy materials declined as well.
Industry Groups
Manufacturing output edged up 0.1 percent in September after rising sharply in August. Excluding motor
vehicles and parts, factory production advanced 0.2 percent. Sizable increases in the production of electrical and
nonelectrical machinery as well as primary metals were partly offset by decreases in the output of motor vehicles and
parts, aerospace and miscellaneous transportation equipment, lumber, and textiles.
Factory utilization edged down 0.1 percentage point to 84.2 percent in September, still 3 percentage points
higher than its long-run average. Over the past year, utilization in manufacturing has risen 3.8 percentage points, with
gains broadly based. Utilization in primary-processing industries has increased 4.2 percentage points, with the largest
gains in primary metals and fabricated metals products. The operating rate for advanced processors has increased
3.7 percentage points during the past year; strong gains for the motor vehicle and machinery industries have led this
advance. Operating rates in most other industries have increased at least 2 percentage points; only foods, instruments,
and miscellaneous manufactures have shown little gain.
The output in mining and utilities fell for a third month in a row. The decreases in utilities during the
summer have partially retraced the surge in output in June, which resulted from especially hot weather.

NOTICE
An annual revision to industrial production, capacity, and capacity utilization is
scheduled to be published in the second half of November. The revision to the production indexes,
which will affect data beginning with January 1991, will incorporate 1992 value-added proportions
and revisions to monthly source data and seasonal factors. The revision to capacity and utilization
will also incorporate the 1992 value-added weights along with new data on physical capacity
measures and investment where available. The capacity revision will chiefly affect individual series
from 1991 forward; aggregate utilization may be changed slightly for earlier years to accommodate
the introduction of the 1992 weights.

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. 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. 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; 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.
Tuning. 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. In 1993, a revision that converted the indexes to
the 1987 SIC from 1987 forward was published.
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,fromwhich 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 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." 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 1ARIMA
method, developed at Statistics Canada. For series based on production-worker
hours, the current seasonal factors were estimated with data through October 1993;
for other series, the factors were estimated with data through July 1993. In some
cases, series were preadjusted for the effects of holidays or the business cycle before
using X - l l ARIMA. 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.

Reliability. The average revision to the level of the total IP index, withom regard to
sign, between the preliminary estimate and its third revision (or from tl.i 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.

description of the methods used to compile the 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

and 1993 revisions were described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 76 (April
1990), pp. 187-204 and vol. 79 (June 1993), pp. 590-605, respectively. The 1994
revision to the index was described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol 80 (March
1994), pp. 220-6.
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, 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. 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 theresultof
dividing an D series by a corresponding capacity index, aggregate utilization rates
P
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 total industry and
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 and 1993 revisions were described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 76
(June 1990), pp. 412-35 and vol. 79 (June 1993), pp. 590-605, respectively. The
1994 revision to the index was described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol.. 80
(March 1994), pp. 220-6.
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 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.
