Price Movements
July 1979

The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods rose 1.1 intermediate goods increased 13.1 percent over the year,
percent from June to July on a seasonally adjusted basis. and prices for crude materials advanced 17.1 percent.
The July advance was considerably larger than the increases
in either May or June. Price increases for intermediate Finished goods
(semifinished) goods and crude materials also accelerated
Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for

finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
Among finished goods, prices for consumer goods rose rose 1.2 percent in July, much more than in each of the

differ from those previously reported. All data are subject to revision 4 months after original publication,
r*> revised.

Prices for intermediate goods other than food and
energy increased 1.3 percent over the month, far more than
in either of the 2 previous months. This was primarily the
result of sharper price advances among materials used in
manufacturing. After 2 months of small increases, the
durable manufacturing materials index advanced 1.8
percent. Prices rose sharply for steel mill products, pig iron
and ferroalloys, precious metals, aluminum, lead, and zinc.
The nondurable manufacturing materials category which
also registered a sharp increase moved up 2.0 percent after
June’s 0.8 percent rise. Price increases accelerated substan­
tially for a number of petroleum-related products, including
industrial chemicals, plastic resins and materials, synthetic
rubber, gray fabrics, and paint materials. In contrast, prices
for leather fell more sharply than in the previous month;
leather prices had climbed very rapidly from mid-1978
through May.
Prices for construction materials moved up at a faster
pace (0.7 percent) than in either May or June, but less than
in any of the first 4 months of 1979. Price increases were
registered for plywood, softwood lumber, structural clay
products, bituminous paving materials, plastic construction
products, and prepared paint. In contrast, prices for mill­
work and building paper and board each fell for the third
consecutive month.
Among components for manufacturing, prices were
considerably higher for motor vehicle parts, electronic
components and accessories, and electric motors. Other
intermediate nonfood nonenergy items which recorded

metal jewelry, floor coverings, dinnerware, lawnmowers,
household flatware, household appliances, and sporting and
athletic goods. Prices for many consumer nondurable goods
other than fuels, however, rose less than 0.5 percent.
The finished consumer foods index was unchanged after
3 months of declines. Lower prices for meats, poultry,
fresh and dried vegetables, and eggs offset advances for
roasted coffee, vegetable oil end products, confectionery
end products, canned vegetables and juices, and bakery
products.
Capital equipment The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment was up 0.8 percent in July, after rising 0.7
percent in May and 0.5 percent in June. Prices rose con­
siderably more than in most recent months for railroad
equipment, metal forming machine tools, construction
machinery, plastic and rubber industry machinery, office
and store machinery, and hand tools. In contrast, motor
truck prices declined more than in any month since Novem­
ber 1977.
Intermediate materials

The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components advanced 1.9 percent seasonally
adjusted from June to July, the largest monthly increase
since the 2.2 percent advance in October 1974. Although
prices for energy products continued to advance rapidly
and food and feed prices turned up markedly, most of the
acceleration in July was due to larger price increases for a
broad variety of materials other than food and energy.

large increases included electric lamps and bulbs, mining
machinery parts, metal forming machine tools parts,
nonfarm tractor parts, and parts for farm machinery other
than tractors.
The processed fuels and lubricants index advanced 4.0
percent, about the same as in recent months. Prices for
liquefied petroleum gas rose nearly 16 percent, Large
increases were also recorded for diesel fuel, residual fuel,
and commercial jet fuel.
After a 4-month period of relative stability, the inter­
mediate foods and feeds index moved up 6.7 percent, as
prices for manufactured animal feeds climbed substantially.
Flour, confectionery materials, and refined vegetable oils
rose rapidly. On the other hand, prices fell for crude
vegetable oils and animal fats and oils.

The index for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs increased
2.1 percent, in contrast to the 1.2 percent drop in June.
The largest advances in July occurred for green coffee
prices (up more than 25 percent) and for corn prices,
which advanced 16.1 percent following 3 months of con­
siderably smaller increases. Prices for wheat, fluid milk,
fresh fruits, and raw cane sugar also rose but much less
than in June. Hog prices decreased substantially for the
fifth consecutive month, and live poultry prices dropped
for the second consecutive month. Prices for fresh and
dried vegetables and cocoa beans turned down after sharp
June increases. Cattle prices edged down, after 2 months
of much larger declines.
Among energy-related materials, natural gas prices
moved up more than 2 percent for the sixth time in the
last 8 months. Crude petroleum prices rose substantially
for the third consecutive month, although the July rise
was not as large as in June.
Prices for crude materials other than food and energy
fell 1.9 percent, after advancing 3.5 percent in the previous
month. Prices for iron and steel scrap, cotton, and crude
natural rubber decreased after substantial June advances.
Hides and skins fell sharply for the third time in the last 4
months. Higher prices were registered, however, for nonferrous scrap and sand, gravel, and crushed stone*

Crude materials

The Producer Price Index for crude materials for
further processing rose 1.8 percent in July on a seasonally
adjusted basis, more than twice as much as in either of the
2 preceding months. The acceleration was largely due to
an upturn in prices for crude food materials. Prices for
crude energy-related materials (principally natural gas and
crude petroleum) continued to climb, but prices for other
nonfood materials generally declined.

Sample Changes in the July 1979
Producer Price Indexes

Sample changes for Producer Price Indexes by major
commodity group

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. Within the
fixed weight concept, sample changes are designed to
improve primary market coverage and to account for
changes in production and marketing patterns.
Specifications for new commodities are listed in table
16. The number of changes by major commodity group is
shown in the following tabulation:

Eight products were added and ten products were
dropped in the list of commodities used for calculating
Producer Price Indexes in July 1979. The sample now
includes 2,763 items, compared with 2,765 in January
1979. The principal sample change affected the stage-ofprocessing grouping for intermediate materials for non­
durable manufacturing as a new subproduct class was
introduced for rubber roll coverings, consisting of graphic
arts, paper mill, steel mill, and industrial roll coverings.

Comprehensive relative importance figures are computed once each 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 ali commodity components of each stage-of-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 importance figures shown reflects only the share

household furniture under the SOP grouping for finished consumer goods excluding foods includes the share
allocated to that SOP grouping but not the share allocated to capital equipment.

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 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 por­
tions 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 PPFs 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 revi­
sion 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 out­
put of each industry is sampled, including second­
ary 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 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.




73

this value; the pilot survey covers about 2 percent
of it.
(3) Improved calculation techniques will be intro­
duced, including the use of Census of Manufac­
tures 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.




(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.

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, agricul­
ture, forestry, fishing, mining, gas and electricity, and
public utilities sectors. The universe includes all com­
modities 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 pur­
chased 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.

75

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 automo­
biles 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 com­
mercial transaction in the United States, from the produc­
tion 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 book prices are used if transaction prices are not
available. Most prices are obtained directly from pro­
ducing 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 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 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 com­
modity traders. Unadjusted data generally are used in
escalating contracts such as purchase agreements or real
estate leases.
