Price Movements
February 1979

Summary
The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved up
1.0 percent from January to February on a seasonally
adjusted basis. This compares with a 1.3 percent rise in
January and an average monthly increase of 0.8 percent
during the last quarter of 1978. Prices for intermediate
(semifinished) goods rose more than 1 percent for the
second consecutive month, and crude material prices
increased over 3 percent, considerably more than in most
recent months (table A).
Prices for most major components of the Finished
Goods Price Index rose sharply, although not as much
as in January. Prices for finished consumer foods were
up 1.6 percent, slightly less than in the previous month
but much more than in December or November. Prices
for consumer nondurable goods other than foods rose
substantially for the fifth consecutive month. Consumer
durable prices rose 0.7 percent over the month, considerably less than the January advance. The rise in capital

equipment prices slowed slightly (table B).
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index
for Finished Goods rose 1.0 percent to 207.4(1967-100).
Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index increased
10.0 percent. The finished consumer foods index was up
12.5 percent from February 1978 to February 1979, the
index for finished consumer goods excluding foods rose
9.6 percent, and capital equipment prices were 8.7 percent
higher than a year ago. The Producer Price Index for intermediate goods increased 9.3 percent over the year, and
prices for crude materials advanced 20.2 percent.
Finished goods
Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index
for finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to
retailers) rose 1.2 percent after seasonal adjustment, compared with increases of 1.4 percent in January and 0.9
percent in both December and November.

special industry machinery and equipment and for oilfield
machinery and tools also rose considerably less than in the
preceding month. After rising rapidly in most recent
months, prices fell for pumps and compressors, hand tools,
and mining machinery and equipment.

The finished consumer foods index rose 1.6 percent
from January to February, following a 1.8 percent advance
in the preceding month. Prices for beef and veal rose much
less than in January (4.7 vs. 13.3 percent). Prices for some
foods, however, rose at a faster rate than in January—
fresh and dried vegetables, pork, vegetable oil end products,
refined sugar in consumer-size packages, and confectionery
end products. Fresh fruits and fish turned up after falling
in January. Prices for roasted coffee and processed poultry
declined.
Prices for consumer nondurable goods other than foods
advanced 0.9 percent in February after rising 1.2 percent in
January. The largest increases occurred for leather footwear, tires and tubes, gasoline, and textile housefurnishings.
Prices also rose for disposable plastic dinnerware and tableware, alcoholic beverages, and most other nondurables.
The index for consumer durables rose 0.7 percent over
the month after an increase of 1.2 percent in January.
Most of the slowdown in February was caused by a smaller
rise (0.7 percent) in the passenger car index, which had
advanced 2.1 percent in January. Prices for household
furniture also rose much less than in the previous month.
Luggage and small leather goods turned down after a
substantial rise in January.

Intermediate materials
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components rose 1.1 percent in February,
seasonally adjusted, nearly as much as in the previous
month. Higher prices for nonferrous metals and chemicals
accounted for much of the February increase.
The index for intermediate materials less foods and feeds
moved up 0.9 percent from January to February after
rising 1.2 percent from December to January. The index for
durable manufacturing materials advanced 1.6 percent,
somewhat less than the 2.2 percent rise in January. Steep
increases for copper and copper products and for precious
metals accounted for much of the February advance. Prices
were also higher for plastic resins and materials, laminated
plastic sheets, foamed plastic products, flat glass, and
jewelers9 materials and findings. Steel mill prices, which
had risen sharply in the preceding month, were virtually
unchanged in February.
Among nondurable manufacturing materials, industrial
chemical prices rose sharply for the second consecutive
month; this index increased as much during the first 2
months of 1979 as it had from December 1976 to December 1978 (3.3 percent). Price increases were also
registered for paper, paperboard, leather, and inedible fats

Capital equipment The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment rose 0.8 percent after increasing 1.0 percent in
January. Motor truck prices advanced more than 2 percent
for the second consecutive month. Commercial furniture
prices rose sharply for the third consecutive month, but
not as much as in January (1.5 vs. 3.6 percent). Prices for

Crude materials
The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing rose 3.3 percent in February on a seasonally
adjusted basis, the largest monthly advance since May 1975.
Prices for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs moved up 3.8
percent following a 2.8 percent rise in the preceding month.
The acceleration in February was partly due to an upturn in
prices for grains and raw cane sugar, both of which had
declined in January. Prices for hogs, soybeans, and fluid
milk rose more than in the previous month. Cattle prices
rose sharply for the second consecutive month, although
not as steeply as in January. In contrast, prices for live
poultry turned down after rising substantially in each of
the previous 3 months. Prices for green coffee and cocoa
beans both decreased much more than in January.

and oils. In contrast, prices for gray fabrics declined for
the third consecutive month after rising substantially
during most of 1978.
Prices for construction materials were generally higher.
Some of the largest advances were registered for plastic
construction products, asphalt roofing, bituminous paving
materials, gypsum products, prepared paint, and fabricated
structural metal products. On the other hand, prices for
both softwood lumber and building paper and board
declined for the third consecutive month, and plywood
turned down after rising in January.
The processed fuels index edged down as prices fell for
commercial jet fuel, residual fuel, liquefied petroleum gas,
electric power, and coke. Diesel fuel prices rose, but less
than in any month since last September.
Prices rose for a broad range of other intermediate nonfood goods, including motor vehicle parts, rubber products,
mechanical power transmission equipment, mixed fertilizers, bearings, and fluid power equipment. On the other
hand, prices for pesticides declined.
The index for intermediate foods and feeds advanced
1.8 percent in February after rising 1.0 percent the month
before. Prices for manufactured animal feeds and flour rose
after decreasing in January, and crude and refined vegetable
oil prices continued to rise. In contrast, prices for confectionery materials and for refined sugar used in food manufacturing turned down after increasing in January.




The crude nonfood materials index advanced 2.8 percent
over the month, after a 1.7 percent rise from December to
January. Much of the February increase was caused by
substantially higher prices for both ferrous and nonferrous
scrap, especially copper base scrap. Prices for hides and
skins moved up 12.6 percent, more than twice as much
as in January. Prices also rose for natural gas, crude petroleum, and crude natural rubber. On the other hand, raw
cotton prices turned down for the first time since last
July.

1 Comprehensive relative importance figures ara computed once eech year in December. Data shown are
expressed as a percent of total finished goods, total intermediate materials, or total crude materials. Data
shown will not add up to 100.000 because not ell commodity components of each stages-processing (SOP)
index are shown; relative importance figures shown account for about 87 percent of total finished goods,
about 90 percent of total intermediate materials, and about 97 percent of total crude materials. For each
commodity component of the finished goods index which is allocated to both capital equipment and finished
consumer goods excluding foods, the relative importancefigureshown reflects only the shere allocated to

Technical Note: Test Data for
Producer Price Index Revision

Test data from the pilot survey for the Producer Price
Index (PPI) 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 comprehensive effort to
make major improvements in the 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-byindustry basis. The results for the first industries in the fullscale survey will be available in the fall of 1979. Coverage
of all mining and manufacturing industries is scheduled
for completion in 1984.
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 because 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. The new indexes will not begin replacing the old
ones in the Producer Price Index until early 1980.
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 IndustrySector Price Indexes (ISPI's) are derived from
these product indexes. The current ISPI's 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 extensions
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 PPI's and
ISPI's 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 available
because of larger sample sizes and increased
capabilities to combine product areas that are not
publishable by themselves. The 5-digit product
class indexes, which cannot now be calculated, will
be produced.
(2) Ultimately, the survey will cover all shipments by
all 493 industries in mining and manufacturing.
The present PPI's cover only about 50 percent of

83

(4) Estimates of sampling error will be published.
For further information on the underlying concepts
and methodology of the Producer Price Index revision, see
"Improving the Measurement of Producer Price Change,"
by John F. Early, in the April 1978 issue of the Monthly
Labor Review. Reprints are available from the Bureau of
Labor Statistics upon request.

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 7-digit 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.

Brief Explanation of
Producer Price Indexes

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 g^s, 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.

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.

spondents 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 bcok 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 185.0. 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."

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 Pnce 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 questionnaire. Re-

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 following example
illustrates the computation of index point and percent
changes. (See box.)

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 specialists, and commodity traders. Unadjusted data generally are used in
escalating contracts such as purchase agreements or real
estate leases.

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 12-month period.
