May 1978
percent increase during the previous month, this was the
largest advance since April 1977. The index for capital
equipment increased 0.9 percent from April to May,
more than in any month since last October. (The Finished
Goods Price Index reflects only changes in prices received
by producers for goods that are in the form in which they
eventually are sold to final users. See "Brief Explanation
of Producer Price Indexes," page 81.)

Summary
The Producer Price Index for Finished Goods moved
up 0.7 percent from April to May on a seasonally adjusted
basis. This was considerably less than the 1.3 percent
advance in April and about the same as the 0.6 percent
increase in March (table A). The slowdown in May was
caused in large part by smaller increases for finished
consumer foods. The index for other finished goods rose
0.8 percent in May. This increase was smaller than in the
previous month because jewelry prices rose much less.
Prices of commodities at the intermediate (semifinished)
stage of processing rose about as much as in April, while
prices of crude materials moved up much less than in any
of the 7 preceding months.
Among finished goods, prices for finished consumer
foods increased 0.5 percent in May, the smallest rise so far
this year. The index for finished consumer goods excluding
foods rose 0.8 percent in May (table B). Except for the 1.3

Before seasonal adjustment, the Producer Price Index for
Finished Goods increased 0.8 percent to 193.0 (1967=100).
Over the year, the Finished Goods Price Index was up 7.0
percent. From May 1977 to May 1978, the finished consumer foods index was up 7.6 percent, the index for
finished consumer goods excluding foods was 6.1 percent
higher, and the capital equipment index rose 7.9 percent.
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials increased 5.7 percent over the year, and the crude materials
was up 7.4 percent.

Data for January 1978 have been revised to reflect the
availability of late reports and corrections by respondents. For
this reason, some of the figures shown above and elsewhere

in this report may differ from those previously reported.
Formerly called producer finished goods.
r= revised.

Finished goods

passenger cars and tires and tubes. Prices rose less than
in April for household appliances, floor coverings, household furniture, and mobile homes. Prices for home electronic equipment turned down after increasing in April.
The index for consumer nondurable goods other thaii
foods rose 0.5 percent in May, about the same as in April.
Prices turned up in May for kerosene, alcoholic beverages,
and tobacco products, following declines or no change in
April. Apparel and home heating oil prices rose more than
in April. On the other hand, prices for gasoline edged
down after increasing in April. Prices rose less in May than
in the previous month for leather and rubber footwear,
sanitary papers and health products, and soaps and synthetic detergents.

Finished consumer goods. The Producer Price Index for
finished consumer goods (those eventually sold to retailers)
rose 0.6 percent in May, seasonally adjusted, compared
with a 1.6 percent rise in April. Price increases decelerated
markedly for foods. The index for consumer durables
also moved up less than in the previous month, but the
May advance was considerably greater than in other recent
months. Prices for nondurable goods increased slightly
more than in recent months.
The index for finished consumer foods moved up 0.5
percent from April to May, following increases of 1.9
percent in April and 0.8 percent in March. Prices turned
down for fresh and dried fruits and vegetables, processed
poultry, beef and veal, and pork after increasing in April.
Prices also declined for milled rice and roasted coffee,
following smaller decreases in the previous month. Prices
rose less in May than in April for flour base mixes and
doughs, dairy products, and miscellaneous processed foods.
On the other hand, prices turned up for refined sugar in
consumer-size packages and refined vegetable oils, after
decreasing in April. Prices also moved up for confectionery
end products and eggs following virtually no change in
April.

Capital equipment The Producer Price Index for capital
equipment rose 0.9 percent in May, somewhat faster than
in recent months. Price increases accelerated markedly for
motor trucks. Prices also rose more than in April for
mining machinery and equipment, oilfield machinery and
tools, and metal cutting machine tools. On the other hand,
prices rose less than in April for railroad equipment,
agricultural machinery and equipment, construction machinery and equipment, industrial process furnaces and
ovens, and pumps, compressors, and equipment. Prices
turned down in May after rising in the previous month
for metal forming machine tools and commercial furniture.

The index for consumer durables advanced 1.2 percent
in May. Although this was considerably smaller than the
2.8 percent rise in April, it was the second largest upward
movement in this index since October 1974. Jewelry
prices rose much less than in April, but price increases
were greater in May than in the previous month for




Intermediate materials
The Producer Price Index for intermediate materials,
supplies, and components rose 0.6 percent, seasonally
2

from April to May. This index had shown an average
monthly rise of 2.1 percent during the previous 7 months.
The index for crude foodstuffs and feedstuffs was unchanged in May, in contrast to the large advances registered
during each of the first 4 months of 1978. In May, prices
turned down for grains, live poultry, fresh and dried fruits
and vegetables, raw cane sugar, and oilseeds, all of which
had recorded higher prices during most of the earlier part
of the year. Prices for hogs and cocoa beans also moved
down but less than in April. On the other hand, green
coffee prices rose for the first time since last November.
Prices for hay, cattle, and fluid milk also rose in May.

adjusted, about the same as in April but less than in each
of thefirst3 months of this year. The index for intermediate
materials excluding foods and feeds increased 0.5 percent in
May, the same as in both April and March. Prices rose less
than in April for motor vehicle parts, fabricated metal
products, paper-related products, and millwork. Prices for
some nonferrous metal products decreased in May for the
second consecutive month, and the steel mill products
index edged down following a series of price advances
earlier in the year. Prices for leather and liquefied petroleum
gas also declined in May. On the other hand, prices turned
up in May for residual fuel oil, coke, electric power,
inedible fats and oils, and plastic resins and materials.
Prices rose more than in April for diesel fuel, commercial
jet fuel, gypsum products, and gray fabrics.
The index for intermediate foods and feeds increased
2.6 percent from April to May, following a 0.1 percent
rise in the preceding month. Prices for manufactured
animal feeds and crude vegetable oils turned up after
decreasing in April. On the other hand, prices for animal
fats and oils and flour were lower in May, following sharp
advances during the previous month. (Intermediate materials are semifinished commodities which have been processed but which require further processing before they
become finished goods.)

The index for crude nonfood materials increased 0.4
percent from April to May on a seasonally adjusted
basis, following a 0.9 percent rise in April and somewhat
larger advances in each of the 5 months before then.
The slowdown in May was caused primarily by crude
fuels, as prices for coal and natural g&s rose much less than
in April. Among crude nonfood materials for manufacturing,
prices for nonferrous scrap declined after an April increase.
Wastepaper and hides and skins also moved down over the
month, and iron and steel scrap quotations rose less than
in April. On the other hand, prices for plant and animal
fibers and crude natural rubber turned up after falling
in April. (Crude materials are products entering the
market for the first time which have not been manufactured or fabricated but which will be processed further
before becoming intermediate or finished goods.)

Crude materials
The Producer Price Index for crude materials for further
processing moved up 0.3 percent after seasonal adjustment

Publication of revised Producer Price Indexes
Starting with this issue, revised Producer Price Indexes
for the fourth month prior to the most current month
will be published regularly in Producer Prices and Price
Indexes. Producer Price Indexes are now routinely revised
four months after they are first released to reflect the
availability of late reports and corrections by respondents.
The following list shows the tables which include
revised indexes for the various classifications of Producer
Price Indexes.
The order of the columns of indexes in these tables has
been rearranged. Revised indexes appear to the left and
the most current month indexes appear to the right.

Commodities at the subproduct class (6-digit) level are assigned to stage of processing (SOP) indexes according
to the amount of processing, manufacturing, or assembling to which those commodities are subjected before they
enter the market. The weight of each subproduct class is allocated among the various SOP indexes in accordance with
the relative proportion of output consumed at each level of processing. SOP allocations are placed within parentheses
for those commodity groupings whose subproduct classes are not uniformly divided among different stage of




processing categories. Such figures indicate the weighted average allocated to a particular stage of processing
category as of December 1977.

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 g?s, paper boxes, and motor vehicle parts.
Crude materials for fiarther 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.
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 Wholesale
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 WPI 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. 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 aré 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 spécial 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
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.)

Index Percent Change

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.

A Note on Seasonally Adjusted Data
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.

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.
