INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION
Industrial production edged up 0.1 percent in September, after remaining unchanged in August on a revised
basis. Last month, the output of motor vehicles and parts rose 8 percent, more than reversing the decline in August.
However, output at utilities fell sharply from the high levels evident since May. Elsewhere, production changed little, on
balance. At 108.1 percent of its 1987 annual average, industrial production in September was 2.2 percent below its
year-ago level. Despite little change in September and August, total output for the third quarter as a whole advanced
6 percent at an annual rate. Total industrial capacity utilization slipped 0.1 percentage point in September to 79.7 percent.
Market Groups
Output of consumer goods, excluding autos and trucks, was unchanged in September. A drop in electricity
generation for residential use offset gains in production of appliances and paper products while most other sectors posted
small changes. Apart from motor vehicles, production of business equipment was flat in September, and has not shown
much improvement since reaching its low in March. Output of construction supplies, which declined a bit in July, rose
about 0.5 percent in each of the past two months; despite the overall recovery evident since the spring, production in

September remained well below its year-ago level. Output of materials, which had grown rapidly over the spring and early
summer months, has changed little recently. Among durables, production of parts and materials used by the motor vehicle
industry has been flat since July; in addition, the output of basic metals was unchanged last monfh. Within nondurables,
such as textiles, paper, and chemicals, production in August and September was-somewhat belo# the high level posted in
July. Production of energy materials plunged in September because electricity generation, which was maintained at high
levels over most of the spring and summer, returned to a more normal level.
Industry Groups
Manufacturing output increased 0.5 percent in September, with the rise in motor vehicles accounting for most
of the gain. Factory utilization edged up 0.2 percentage point to 78.7 percent in September, retracing the decline in August.
Operating rates for both primary and advanced processing industries rose slightly, but still remain well below their 1967-90
averages. Among primary processing industries, the utilization rate for petroleum products advanced noticeably, but
operating rates in most other sectors changed little. In advanced processing industries, the utilization rate for motor vehicles
and parts rose sharply, but factory operating rates for foods, printing, and machinery declined.
Outside manufacturing, the operating rate at utilities fell very sharply in response to the step down in demand
for electricity. The utilization rate in mining was down for a second month, but remained a bit above its historical average.

Reliability. The average revision to the level of the total IP index, withoufregard to
sign, between the preliminary estimate and its third revision (or from die 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, hi 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.

Dixon 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 normaLdowntime, 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.

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 l), such as consumer goods,
equipment, intermediate products, and materials, from which the seasonally
adj usted 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.
M arket 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. 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— year (currently 1987).
base
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—11 Arima
Method, which was developed at Statistics Canada. The current seasonal factors are
based on data through 1988. Individual series and major aggregates are seasonally
adjusted independently. Hie 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.



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 except for the components in group 2819, which
are estimates. 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 DPis considerably smaller than its
share of total electric power use, excluding this component from total power use
facilitates comparisons with total IP.
