December 1979

12.5 percent. The finished energy goods index climbed 62.7
percent from December 1978 to December 1979, consumer
food prices rose 7.5 percent, the index for finished consumer goods other than food and energy increased 9.3
percent, and capital equipment prices were up 8.7 percent.
The Producer Price Index for intermediate goods rose 15.9
percent over the year, and crude material prices advanced 17.5 percent.

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods advanced
0.8 percent from November to December on a seasonally
adjusted basis. The December rise was much less than the
13 percent increase in November and was the smallest
since June. Prices for intermediate (semifinished) goods
rose 1.2 percent, somewhat more than the 0.9 percent
advance in November and the same as the average monthly
increase in 1979. Crude material prices rose 1.1 percent
following larger increases in each of the previous 3 months
(table A).
The slowdown in the rate of increase for finished goods
occurred because prices for consumer foods edged down
after rising unusually rapidly in November. However, the
index for finished consumer goods other than food rose
1 3 percent, somewhat more than in November. Capital
equipment prices rose 0.9 percent, much more than in
November (table B).
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index for
Finished Goods moved up 0.8 percent to 227.8 (1967»
100). Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index rose

Finished goods
Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished consumer goods rose 0.8 percent in December
following an increase of 1.6 percent in November and 1.0
percent in October. The December slowdown was due to a
downturn for consumer foods, particularly beef and
poultry. However, the index for finished consumer goods
other than foods advanced 13 percent, somewhat more
than the 1.0 percent rise in November.
The finished consumer foods index edged down 0.1
percent, following a 2.6 percent increase in November.

ings moved up after little or no change in November. Prices
for disposable plastic dinnerware and prescription drugs
turned up after declining in the previous month. On the
other hand, tires and tubes rose much less than in any of
the 7 preceding months.
Capital equipment. The index for capital equipment
advanced 0.9 percent in December, following increases of
0.5 and 1.2 percent in November and October, respectively.
Motor truck prices, which had edged down in November,
rose 0.7 percent. Prices rose faster than in November for
construction machinery, metal cutting machine tools,
pumps and compressors, unitary air conditioners, oilfield
machinery, and commercial furniture.

Prices for processed poultry, which had risen 21.5 percent
in November, moved down 0.1 percent; prices for beef
and veal, which had risen 6.0 percent in November, fell
4.3 percent. Prices also turned down sharply for fresh
and dried vegetables following a large increase in November,
milled rice prices fell much more than in the previous
month, and roasted coffee prices dropped slightly after
rising rapidly in November. Also contributing to the slowdown in food prices were smaller increases for pork and
eggs. On the other hand, prices for fresh fruits turned up
sharply after declining in November, and prices for refined
sugar in consumer size packages rose much more than in
the preceding month.
The index for consumer durables rose 1.5 percent, after
advancing 0.8 percent in November. Most of the acceleration was due to a 17.7 percent advance for precious metal
jewelry. Prices also rose for dinnerware, household scissors,
household glassware, and household furniture. Passenger
car prices rose only slightly for the second consecutive
month.
The index for consumer nondurables other than foods
rose 1.3 percent, compared with increases of 1.1 percent
in November and 1.8 percent in October. Prices for energy
goods rose 2.4 percent, about the same as in November but
much less than in most other months in 1979. Gasoline
prices rose 3.4 percent, the same as a month earlier; prices
for finished lubricants moved up 0.5 percent after a 5.0-percent advance; and home heating oil prices were virtually unchanged for the second consecutive month. Prices for
tobacco products, sanitary papers, and textile housefurnish-

Intermediate materials
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components advanced 1.2 percent in December, seasonally adjusted, more than in November but the
same as the average monthly increase in 1979. Accelerating
price increases were widespread, with the largest increases
registered for precious metals. Energy prices continued to
rise substantially, although less than in most other months
in 1979. However, the index for construction materials was
virtually unchanged for the second consecutive month.
The index for intermediate materials less food and
energy rose 0.9 percent, somewhat morethanin November.
The sharpest acceleration was within the durable manufacturing materials group, which moved up 1.5 percent
following a 0.4 percent rise. Silver prices increased 23
percent, and gold was up 15 percent; the index for jewelers'

recorded for flour and animal fats and oils. However, prices
for manufactured animal feeds and crude and refined
vegetable oils continued to fall.

materials and findings advanced 16.5 percent. Prices for
copper, aluminum, tin, nickel, and zinc also rose
substantially. On the other hand, prices for steel mill products moved up much less than in November.
Among nondurable manufacturing materials, prices rose
substantially for paperboard, woodpulp, phosphates, nitrogenates, industrial chemicals, synthetic rubber, leather,
animal hide glue, and gray fabrics. However, inedible fats
and oils prices declined for the second consecutive month.
The construction materials and components index edged
up 0.1 percent, following a 0.2 percent rise in November.
Softwood lumber and plywood prices both fell more
sharply than in the previous month. These declines were
offset by advances in prices for day tile, concrete products,
Portland cement, heating equipment, valves and fittings,
wiring devices, nonferrous wire and cable, and prepared
paint.
Large price increases were registered for several manufacturing components, including switchgear and switchboards, ball and roller bearings, fluid power equipment,
motor vehicle parts, and electronic components. Other
intermediate nonfood nonenergy goods which rose sharply
included photographic supplies, glass containers, nonfarm
tractor parts, machine tool parts, cutting tools, abrasive
products, and unsupported plastic film and sheeting.
The rate of increase in the intermediate energy index
continued to slow in December. Prices rose less than in the
previous month for residual fuel, commercial jet fuel,
liquefied petroleum gas, and lubricating oil materials.
Diesel fuel prices increased slightly for the second consecutive month following 8 months of much larger advances.
On the other hand, electric power prices advanced more
than in any other month during 1979.
The intermediate foods and feeds index turned up after
declining in November. Prices rose very sharply for refined
sugar for use in food manufacturing. Increases were also




Crude materials
The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing rose 1.1 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis,
following a 2.0 percent increase in the previous month.
Price indexes for crude foodstuffs and for crude materials
other than agricultural products and energy fell slightly
following large November increases, but crude energy
materials rose more than in the preceding month.
The index for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs edged
down 0.1 percent, following a 2.0 percent rise in November. Much of the deceleration was due to a fall in cattle
prices, which had risen in the previous month. Wheat and
soybean prices also decreased. Live poultry and hog prices
moved up, but much more slowly than in November.
On the other hand, cocoa bean and raw cane sugar prices,
which had dropped in November, rose 14.7 and 11.2
percent, respectively. Prices for corn and green coffee also
advanced following November declines.
The index for crude materials less agricultural products
and energy moved down 0.3 percent after climbing 3.9
percent in November. The downturn was caused by prices
for ferrous and nonferrous scrap, which moved down after
rising substantially in the previous month. On the other
hand, prices for natural rubber and hides and skins turned
up after falling in November. Prices for cotton, wastepaper,
and sand, gravel, and crushed stone also rose.
Prices for crude energy materials moved up 4.1 percent
over the month, following 2 months of much smaller
increases. Natural gas prices rose 5.2 percent, the largest
advance since May, and crude petroleum prices increased
4.5 percent, somewhat more than in either of the previous
2 months.

Technical Note: Test Data for
Producer Price Index Revision

Test data from the pilot survey for the Producer
Price Index (PP1) revision have been developed for the
period beginning January 1978 and are published each
month in table 14, "Producer price indexes for the net
output of selected industries and products',' in this
report. The revision is being undertaken as a measurement of price changes by domestic producers of goods
and services. The data now available are from a pilot
survey conducted to test the methods and procedures
for the comprehensive revision. The revision will be
conducted on an industry-by-industry basis. The results
for the first industries in the full-scale survey will be
available in early 1980. Coverage of all mining and
manufacturing industries is scheduled for completion
in 1985.
The four industries covered in the pilot survey are:
Soybean oil mills (SIC 2075), newspaper printing and
publishing (SIC 2711), concrete products other than
block and brick (SIC 3272), and household laundry
equipment (SIC 3633). These industries were selected
bccause they offered a wide range of pricing problems
on which to test the new techniques. Indexes covering
some of these same industries will continue to be
calculated under the old program.
These pilot survey indexes differ from indexes in the
current Producer Price Index in a number of important
respects:
(1) They are industry-based indexes. The entire
output of each industry is sampled, including
secondary production and miscellaneous
receipts. The current Producer Price Indexes
are based on a sample of major products. Even
the Industry-Sector Price Indexes (ISPFs) are
derived from these product indexes. The current ISPFs do not price miscellaneous receipts,
and the prices for primary and secondary production are obtained from any producer of the
product even if that producer does not belong
to the industry. The newly published pilot
survey indexes are derived from prices supplied strictly by producers within the industry.
As a result, the pilot product indexes apply
only to the production within the industry.
After all mining and manufacturing industries




are covered by the revision, product indexes
will be constructed covering all production of
the product.
(2) These new indexes are classified in accordance
with the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC)
system and incorporate most features of the
Census of Manufactures product code extension of the SIC. The coding will make the data
easier to use in conjunction with other industry-oriented economic data.
(3) Net output values of shipments are used as
weights in preparing the index. Net output
values refer to the value of shipments leaving
the industry. In contrast, the weights used in
the current PPFs and ISPFs are gross shipment
values, which include shipments within an industry. The resulting multiple counting of
price changes is one of the major defects of the
current indexes. The current stage-of«processing indexes partially correct this defect, but the
new indexes consistently correct it at all levels.
(4) Increased emphasis is being given to obtaining
actual transaction prices at the time of shipment.
Although it has been a general objective of the
current program to obtain transaction prices,
they have not been obtained for significant
portions of the index. In addition, some products in the current PPI intentionally have been
priced at order prices rather than shipment
prices.
(5) Probability sampling was used to select the firms
to be asked to report prices. As a result, firms
of all sizes are included in the sample. In addition, within the firm, the individual items to be
priced and the terms of the transaction were
chosen using probability techniques. In the
current PPI, major companies selected on a
judgment basis are asked to report prices for
volume-selling items under "typical" transaction terms.
Since this is a pilot survey, a number of changes will
be introduced as the full-scale survey is put in place.
These changes include the following:
(1) Greater product detail will generally be

79

(2)

(3)

available because of larger sample sizes and increased capabilities to combine product areas
that are not publishable by themselves. The 5digit product class indexes, which cannot now
be calculated, will be produced.
Ultimately, the survey will cover all shipments
by all 493 industries in mining and manufacturing. The present PPI's cover only about SO
percent of this value; the pilot survey covers
about 2 percent of it.
Improved calculation techniques will be introduced, including the use of Census of




Manufactures shipment data to weight the 7digit product indexes to higher levels. The
pilot indexes rely on the estimated relative importance of products based on shipment data
derived from the survey itself.
(4) Estimates of sampling error will be published.

and methodology of the Producer Price Index revision,

Change,** by John F. Early, in the April 1978 issue of
the Monthly Labor Review. Reprints are available from

Brief Explanation of
Producer Price Indexes
Producer Price Indexes measure average changes in
prices received in primary markets of the United States
by producers of commodities in all stages of processing.
These data were previously presented as the Wholesale
Price Index. The name "Producer Price Indexes" is
now being used to reflect more accurately the coverage
of the data. The sample used for calculating these indexes continues to contain nearly 2,800 commodities
and about 10,000 quotations selected to represent the
movement of prices of all commodities produced in the
manufacturing, agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining,
gas and electricity, and public utilities sectors. The
universe includes all commodities produced or imported for sale in commercial transactions in primary
markets in the United States.
Producer Price Indexes can be organized by stage of
processing or by commodity. The stage of processing
structure organizes products by degree of fabrication
(i.e., finished goods, intermediate or semifinished
goods, and crude materials). The commodity structure
organizes products by similarity of end-use or material
composition.
Finished goods are commodities that will not undergo further processing and are ready for sale to the ultimate user, either an individual consumer or a business
firm. Capital equipment (formerly called producer
FINISHED GOODS




finished goods) includes commodities such as motor
trucks, farm equipment, and machine tools. Finished
consumer goods include foods and other types of goods
eventually purchased by retailers and used by consumers. Consumer foods include unprocessed foods
such as eggs and fresh vegetables, as well as processed
foods such as bakery products and meats. Other
finished consumer goods include durables such as
automobiles, household furniture, and jewelry, and
nondurables such as apparel and gasoline.
Intermediate materials, supplies, and components are
commodities that have been processed but require
further processing before they become finished goods.
Examples of such semifinished goods include flour,
cotton yarns, steel mill products, belts and belting,
lumber, liquefied petroleum gas, paper boxes, and
motor vehicle parts.
Crude materials for further processing include products entering the market for the first time which have
not been manufactured or fabricated but will be processed before becoming finished goods. Scrap materials
are also included. Crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs include items such as grains and livestock. Examples of
crude nonfood materials include raw cotton, crude
petroleum, natural gas, hides and skins, and iron and
steel scrap.

CRUDE MATERIALS

For analysis of general price trends, stage of processing indexes are more useful than commodity grouping
indexes. This is because commodity grouping indexes
sometimes produce exaggerated or misleading signals
of price changes by reflecting the same price movement
through various stages of processing. For example, suppose that a price rise for steel scrap results in an increase in the price of steel sheet and then an advance in
prices of automobiles produced from that steel. The All
Commodities Price Index and the Industrial Commodities Price Index would reflect the same price
movement three times—once for the steel scrap, once
for the steel sheet, and once for the automobiles. This
multiple counting occurs because the weighting structure for the All Commodities Index uses the total shipment values for all commodities at all stages of processing. On the other hand, the Finished Goods Price Index
would reflect the change in automobile prices, the Intermediate Materials Price Index would reflect the
steel sheet price change, and the Crude Materials Price
Index would reflect the rise in the price of steel scrap.
(See illustration.)
To the extent possible, prices used in calculating
Producer Price Indexes apply to the first significant
commercial transaction in the United States, from the
production or central marketing point. Price data are
generally collected monthly, primarily by mail ques-

tionnaire. Respondents are asked to provide net prices
or to provide all applicable discounts. BLS attempts to
base Producer Price Indexes on actual transaction
prices; however, list or book prices are used if transaction prices are not available. Most prices are obtained
directly from producing companies on a voluntary and
confidential basis, but some prices are taken from trade
publications or from other Government agencies.
Prices generally are reported for the Tuesday of the
week containing the 13th day of the month.
In calculating Producer Price Indexes, price changes
for the various commodities are averaged together with
weights representing their importance in the total net
selling value of all commodities as of 1972. The
detailed data are aggregated to obtain indexes for stage
of processing groupings, commodity groupings,
durability of product groupings, and a number of
special composite groupings. Each index measures
price changes from a reference period which equals
100.0 (usually 1967, as designated by the Office of
Management and Budget). An increase of 85 percent
from the reference period in the Finished Goods Price
Index, for example, is shown as 18S.0. This change can
also be expressed in dollars, as follows: "The price of a
representative sample of finished goods sold in primary
markets in the United States has risen from $100 in
1967 to $185."

A Note about Calculating
Index Changes

A Note on Seasonally
Adjusted Data

Movements of price indexes from one month to
another are usually expressed as percent changes rather
than changes in index points because index point
changes are affected by the level of the index in relation
to its base period, while percent changes are not. The
box below shows the computation of index point and
percent changes.
Percent changes for 3-month and 6-month periods
are expressed as annual rates that are computed according to the standard formula for compound growth
rates. These data indicate what the percent change
would be if the current rate were maintained for a 12month period.

Because price data are used for different purposes by
different groups, the Bureau of Labor Statistics
publishes seasonally adjusted as well as unadjusted
changes each month.
For analyzing general price trends in the economy,
seasonally adjusted data usually are preferred because
they eliminate the effect of changes that normally occur
at about the same time and in about the same magnitude every year—such as price movements resulting
from normal weather patterns, regular production and
marketing cycles, model changeovers, seasonal discounts, and holidays. For this reason, seasonally adjusted data more clearly reveal the underlying cyclical
trends. Seasonally adjusted data are subject to revision
when seasonal factors are revised each year.
The unadjusted data are of primary interest to users
who need information which can be related to the actual dollar values of transactions. Individuals requiring this information include marketing specialists,
purchasing agents, budget and cost analysts, contract
specialist, and commodity traders. Unadjusted data
generally are used in escalating contracts such as
purchase agreements or real estate leases.
