INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION
Industrial production declined 0.2 percent in September after having gained 1.1 percent in August. The
output of utilities, which was boosted over the summer by the unusually hot weather, fell 5.4 percent as'demand for
electricity returned to more normal levels. Manufacturing output rose 0.2 percent on advances in the production of most
durable goods industries; however, the output of nondurables, particularly of textiles, apparel, and paper, declined. At
122.6 percent of its 1987 average, industrial production in September was 3.1 percent higher than it was in September
1994. Capacity utilization declined 0.4 percentage point, to 83.8 percent. For the third quarter as a whole, overall
industrial production rose 3.5 percent at an annual rate after having declined 2.3 percent in the second quarter. The
weather-related surge in utility output accounted for about one-fourth of the gain in the total index in the third quarter.
Market Groups
The production of consumer goods, held down by a drop-back in the output of electricity for residential use,
fell 0.5 percent in September. The production of motor vehicles, which had increased sharply in August, rose a bit

further. In other categories of the consumer goods sector, the production of durable goods other than automotive product
increased again. The output of nondurable consumer goods excluding energy products has changed little, on balance,
since the end of last year. The production of business equipment, which grew rapidly in the previous two months,
increased 0.4 percent; for the quarter, the output in this sector grew 8.7 percent at an annual rate, with gains concentrated
in industrial equipment and information processing equipment. The output of construction supplies has strengthened
recently, with the monthly increase over the third quarter averaging about 0.5 percent.
The production of materials decreased 0.2 percent as declines in energy and nondurable goods materials
more than offset the gain in durable goods materials. The return to a more normal level of electricity generation more
than accounted for the sharp drop in energy materials. Among nondurables, the output of textile and paper materials
declined, and the production of chemical materials remained sluggish. The gain in durable goods materials mainly
reflected continued strength in the production of parts for high-technology equipment.
Industry Groups
The output of manufacturing rose 0.2 percent in September after having gained 0.9 percent in August. For
the quarter as a whole, production in the manufacturing sector grew 2.5 percent at an annual rate, not quite reversing the
3.3 percent loss of the second quarter. For September, as for the entire third quarter, the gains in manufacturing output
were concentrated in durables. The production of nondurable manufacturing declined again in September, with the outpt
of textiles, apparel, and paper posting the most significant declines. The output of nondurables fell for the third quarter,
at a 2.0 percent annual rate, after having dropped 2.9 percent in the second quarter.
The factory operating rate edged down 0.1 percentage point in September, to 82.9 percent, and on balance
has changed little in recent months. The utilization rates in both advanced-processing and primary-processing industries
were about unchanged in September. Nonetheless, the operating rate for advanced-processing industries was
0.6 percentage point above its recent low in July, whereas the utilization rate for primary-processing industries had been
continuing to drift lower.
The output of electricity fell back as temperatures, which had been abnormally high in July and August,
reached more typical levels; as a result, the operating rate for utilities fell from 94.2 percent to 89.0 percent. The
utilization rate for mining rose 0.5 percentage point because of a sharp increase in coal output.

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.
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. 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, 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 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 1992 to the present, IP is
aggregated on the basis of 1992 value-added weights. The aggregation of the index
for the 1987-91 period is based on 1987 weights, whereas 1982 weights are used for
the 1982-86 period. The other weight years in the postwar period are 1977, 1972,
1967, 1963,1958,1954. and 1947. The 1992 value-added weights used to aggregate
the index are shown in the first column of tables 1, 2, and 6, in the "Value added"
column under the heading "1992."
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 1994;
for other series, the factors were estimated with data through at least June 1994. In
some cases, series were preadjusted for the effects of holidays or the business cycle
before using X-ll 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, without regard to
sign, between the preliminary estimate and its third revision (orfromthe 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.
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. To obtain Industrial {
Production—1986 Edition ($9.00 per copy), write to Board of Governors of the
Federal Reserve System, Publications Services, Washington, DC 20551. The 1990
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 early
1994 revision to the index was described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 80
(March 1994), pp. 220-6. The later 1994 revision to the index was described in the
Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 81 (January 1995), pp. 16-26.
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 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 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
early 1994 revision to the index was described in the Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol.
80 (March 1994), pp. 220-6. The later 1994 revision to the index was described in the
Federal Reserve Bulletin, vol. 81 (January 1995), pp. 16-26.
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 anc
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 ar
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 ii'
the 1987 censuses of those industries. The supplementary group, 'Total, less nuclea;
nondefense," is shown separately because the nondefense nuclear material serie
(part of SIC 2819) accounts for a disproportionately large part of total electric powe^
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 tola
power use facilitates comparisons with total IP.
