Price Movements
January 1979

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved up
1.3 percent from December to January on a seasonally
adjusted basis. The increase was considerably more than the
average monthly increase of 0.8 percent during the last 4:
months of 1978 and was the largest monthly advance
since November 1974. Prices for intermediate (semifinished) and crude goods also rose sharply in January. The
acceleration in all three stages of processing occurred
primarily in beef and cattle prices and in a broad range of
nonfood commodities (table A).
For the first time in more than 4 years, all major components of the Finished Goods Price Index rose 1 percent or
more. Prices for finished consumer foods were up 1.8 percent, a continuation of the sharp advances recorded during
most of 1978. Prices for consumer nondurable goods other
than foods rose sharply for the fourth consecutive month,
and increases for consumer durable prices accelerated
following relatively small changes in the closing months of
1978. Capital equipment prices rose somewhat more than

in any month last year (table B).
Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index for
Finished Goods rose 1.4 percent to 20S.3 (1967=100).
Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index increased 9.8
percent. The finished consumer foods index was up 12.9
percent from January 1978 to January 1979, the index
for finished consumer goods excluding foods rose 9.0
percent, and capital equipment prices were 8.4 percent
higher than a year ago. The Producer Price Index for
intermediate goods increased 8.9 percent over the year,
and prices for crude materials advanced 18.S percent.

Finished goods

Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
rose 1.4 percent after seasonal adjustment, compared with
increases of 0.9 percent in December and 0.7 percent in
November.

Seasonal adjustment factors have been recalculated to reflect
developments during 1978. The new factors, to be used through
December 1979, are published in table 17. In addition, data for
September 1978 have been revised to reflect the availability of late

reports and corrections by respondents. For these reasons, some
figures shown above and elsewhere In this report may differ from
those previously reported.

The finished consumer foods index advanced 1.8 percent
over the month, much more than in December (1.0
percent) and November (0.7 percent), and about as much
as in October (1.9 percent). The January acceleration was
caused by prices for beef and veal, which moved up over
13 percent. This was half as much as the increase in beef
and veal prices during all of 1978. Milled rice prices turned
up after falling most of last year. Higher prices were also
recorded for fresh and dried vegetables, vegetable oil end
products, processed poultry, pork, and whole black pepper.
Prices for dairy products and processed fruits and vegetables also moved up but considerably less than in most
recent months. Prices for fresh fruits, roasted coffee, and
fish declined sharply.
The index for consumer durables advanced 1.2 percent
in January, after rising 0.5 percent and 0.4 percent in
December and November, respectively. Prices for passenger
cars were up considerably more than in recent months.
Prices were also higher for household flatware, jewelry
made of platinum and karat gold, luggage and small
leather goods, household furniture, household appliances,
and lawnmowers. On the other hand, prices for household
glassware moved down.
Prices for consumer nondurable goods other than foods
moved up 1.2 percent over the month, somewhat more
than the 1.0 percent average increase in each of the last 3
months of 1978. Some of the largest advances in January
occurred for tobacco products, gasoline, tires and tubes,
and cosmetics. Increases were also registered for home
heating oil, pharmaceutical preparations, razor blades,
sporting and athletic goods, nonalcoholic beverages, sani-




tary papers and health products, apparel, and footwear.
Prices for textile housefurnishings decreased over the
month.
Capital equipment The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment rose 1.0 percent over the month, following
increases of 0.7 and 0.9 percent in December and November, respectively. Some of the largest advances in January
occurred for motor trucks, commercial furniture, oilfield
machinery and tools, and hand tools. Prices for machine
tools, however, rose considerably less than in most recent
months.
Intermediate materials

The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components advanced 1.2 percent in January
after seasonal adjustment, more than in any month since
November 1974. The acceleration in the index was the
result of sharply higher prices for a broad range of manufacturing and construction materials.
The index for intermediate materials less foods and feeds
also rose 1.2 percent from December to January. The
largest upward price movements were in the durable manufacturing materials category. Almost half of this increase
was caused by a 3.6 percent increase in prices for finished
steel products. Prices also rose for copper and copper
products, precious metals, hardwood lumber, pig iron
and ferroalloys, flat glass, and jewelers' materials and
findings.
Among nondurable manufacturing materials, the price
indexes for industrial chemicals and plastic resins and

seasonally adjusted.) Prices for animal fats and oils and
crude vegetable oils were up sharply; refined sugar for use
in food manufacturing also rose. On the other hand, prices
for flour and manufactured animal feeds declined.

materials both advanced more over the month than in
all of 1978. Prices were also higher for woodpulp, inedible
fats and oils, leather, and paint materials.
The index for materials and components for construction moved up in January at about the same rate as it had
during most of 1978. Prices for plywood, millwork, Portland cement, concrete products, gypsum products, asphalt
roofing, and fabricated structural metal products registered
some of the largest advances over the month. On the other
hand, the indexes for softwood lumber and building paper
and board declined for the second consecutive month.
Among processed fuels and lubricants, price increases
were recorded for residual fuel, diesel fuel, commercial
jet fuel, and lubricating oil materials. In contrast, liquefied
petroleum gas prices declined, as they had during most of
last year.
Among other intermediate nonfood goods, some of the
largest increases occurred for metal containers, mining
machinery parts, valves and fittings, notions, photographic
supplies, abrasive products, and fluid power equipment.
The intermediate foods and feeds index moved up 1.0
percent from December to January. (This index is no longer




Crude materials

The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing rose 2.4 percent in January on a seasonally
adjusted basis, after a much smaller increase in December.
Prices for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs moved up 2.8
percent, after a 0.1 percent rise in the previous month. This
acceleration was mainly due to a rise of about 11 percent
for cattle prices. Prices for live poultry, hay, oilseeds, and
fluid milk also moved up. In contrast, prices for wheat and
raw cane sugar were lower.
The crude nonfood materials index advanced 1.7 percent
in January. Prices increased for natural gas, crude petroleum, hides and skins, nonferrous scrap, and wastepaper.
On the other hand, prices declined after rising in most
recent months for iron and steel scrap and crude natural
rubber.

Note on Seasonal
Adjustment Procedures

January 1974 to the present. Table C compares percent
changes for seasonally adjusted indexes calculated with the
old seasonal factors and seasonally adjusted indexes recalculated with the new factors for the three major SOP
categories.

Effective with this report, seasonal adjustment factors
have been recalculated to reflect 1978 experience for stageof-processing (SOP) groupings, commodity groupings, and
durability groupings. The new factors, to be used through
December 1979, appear in table 17. This routine annual
recalculation may affect seasonally adjusted data from

Data in this report reflect semiannual changes in the
sample of commodities used to calculate Producer Price
Indexes. Each year changes in the commodity sample are
made in the January and July indexes. Sample revisions
are designed, within the fixed-weight concept, to improve
primary market coverage and to account for changes in
production and marketing patterns.
Inasmuch as 20 products were added and 20 items were
dropped in the list of commodities used for calculating
Producer Price Indexes in January 1979, the sample now
includes 2,765 items, the same as in July 1978. The number
of changes by major commodity group is shown in the
following tabulation:

Major areas of change

The 20 products that were added to the index helped to
improve the coverage in the stage-of-processing (SOP)
grouping for finished consumer goods, particularly durables. The jewelry sample was revised extensively with the
introduction of 15 new items that represent a broad range
of costume and precious jewelry. The revision in the
jewelry sample also improved the SOP category for intermediate materials for durable manufacturing, which now
includes jewelers' materials and findings. Indexes for
jewelry and jewelry products will now be published on a
base of December 1978=100; indexes before that month
are not available. A microwave oven and four musical
instruments were also added to the sample of consumer
durables.
Table 16 lists detailed specifications for new commodities. Detailed data on relative importance of all items in the
index as of December 1978 will be published later this year
in the annual supplement.

Technical Note: Test Data for
Producer Price Index Revision

(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

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.

(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,"

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

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) 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.

92

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 on page 92.)
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-

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."

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.)
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.

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.
