For release
September 15,

INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION

Industrial production posted a 0.3 percent gain in August and was unchanged
in July; the
level of output in July was initially estimated to have risen by 0.4 percent.
Manufacturing output
inched up 0.1 percent in both July and August, a slower rate than in the first
half of the year,
when increases in manufacturing production averaged a little more than 1/2
percent per month.
Mining output was unchanged in August, while production at utilities surged 4.0
percent.
Capacity utilization for total industry rose 0.1 percentage point, to 82.3
percent, a level 0.3
percentage point above its 1967-99 average.
Market Groups
------------After having declined 0.3 percent in July, the output of consumer goods rose
0.5 percent
in August; production in the durable and nondurable goods sectors posted
comparable gains.
Within consumer durables, an increase in the output of automotive products,
mainly motor
vehicle assemblies and replacement tires, more than offset a decline in the
production of other
durable goods. Among other durable goods, a gain in the production of household
appliances
reversed a small portion of the sizable decline in July, but the output of
carpeting and furniture
and of miscellaneous durable goods fell. Within nondurable consumer goods,
energy products
jumped 3.7 percent in August, led by gains in residential sales of electricity
and fuel oil. The
output of non-energy products ticked up just 0.1 percent.
The production of business equipment rose 0.3 percent last month, with
another large
increase in the output of information processing and related equipment more than
accounting for
the gain. The production of industrial equipment moved down 0.5 percent. A 1.1
percent drop
in transit equipment was due to declines in the output of commercial aircraft and
of medium and
heavy trucks. A large decrease in farm machinery and equipment production pushed
down the
"other equipment" index 4.8 percent. On balance, the level of output of business

equipment was
8.8 percent higher than in August 1999, with gains in all major sectors except
transit equipment.
The production of defense and space equipment dropped 0.7 percent after two
months of sizable
increases.
After a downward-revised 0.1 percent rise in July, the production of
construction supplies
fell 1.2 percent in August and is now about 2-1/2 percent below its recent peak
in April. The
output of durable goods materials rose 0.5 percent, bringing production to a
level 15.6 percent
above the level in August 1999. The output of equipment parts, especially
semiconductors,
continued to post strong gains, but the output of consumer parts and of basic
metals, such as
steel, fell further. The output of nondurable goods materials dropped 0.2
percent, continuing the
sluggish pattern that has been evident this year. In contrast, production of
energy materials
jumped 1.7 percent.
Industry Groups
--------------Manufacturing output edged up 0.1 percent in August for the second
consecutive month.
Upward revisions to the manufacturing index for May and June were more than
offset by a
downward revision for July, which was largely attributable to lower production in
steel, paper,
and automotive parts. In August the level of output in the manufacturing sector
was 6.2 percent
higher than the level in August 1999. Excluding motor vehicles and parts,
manufacturing
production fell 0.1 percent. The output of durable goods industries moved up 0.2
percent, with
the production of transportation equipment advancing 0.9 percent. Durable goods
production
was also lifted by further gains in computer and office equipment and
semiconductors. The
production of nondurable goods edged down, reversing the July increase; continued
weakness in
textile mill products, apparel, and rubber and plastics accounted for most of the
decline. The
overall factory operating rate dropped 0.2 percentage point, to 81.2 percent;
capacity utilization
at primary-processing industries fell 0.5 percentage point, while utilization at
advanced-processing industries held steady at 81.1 percent.
The level of output in the mining sector was flat in August after three
months of strong
gains, which were mainly due to increases in the output of energy extraction
industries. The
utilization rate at mines ticked up, to 87.8 percent, a level 0.5 percentage
point above its long-run
average. Output at utilities, which had dropped 2.8 percent in June and 2.0
percent in July,

jumped 4.0 percent; the operating rate at utilities increased to 91.2 percent,
nearly 4 percent
above its long-run average.
Revision of Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization
In November the Federal Reserve Board will publish revisions to the index of
industrial
production (IP), to the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization,
and to the index of
industrial use of electric power. The updated measures will reflect both the
incorporation of
newly available, more comprehensive source data typical of annual revisions and,
for some
series, the introduction of improved compilation methods. The revision will also
include a
refinement of the method used to aggregate the individual series in the
production and capacity
indexes. The new source data are for recent years, primarily 1997 through 1999,
and the
modified methods affect data from 1992 onward.
This statistical release, the G.17, will be redesigned with the publication
of the revision.
More special aggregates will be added, but some detailed industry data will be
available only on
the Federal Reserve Board's public web site. Additional details regarding the
redesign will be
provided next month.
The updating of source data for IP will include annual data from the
following reports of
the Bureau of the Census: the 1997 Census of Manufactures, the 1998 Annual Survey
of
Manufactures, and selected editions of its 1998 and 1999 Current Industrial
Reports. Annual
data from the US Geological Survey regarding metallic and nonmetallic minerals
(except fuels)
for 1998 and 1999 will also be introduced. The updating will include revisions
to the monthly
indicator for each industry (either physical product data, production-worker
hours, or electric
power usage) and revised seasonal factors.
Capacity and capacity utilization will be revised to incorporate preliminary
data from the
1999 Survey of Plant Capacity of the Bureau of the Census, which covers
manufacturing, along
with other new data on capacity from the U.S. Geological Survey, the Department
of Energy,
and other organizations. The statistics on the industrial use of electric power
will incorporate
additional information received from utilities for the past few years and will
include some data
from the 1997 Census of Manufactures and 1998 Annual Survey of Manufactures.
Aggregate industrial production indexes have been built as annually weighted
chain-type
indexes, beginning with data for 1977. Currently, the weights are changed at the
middle of every
year; with the coming revision, the weights will change every month, rather than

once a year,
beginning with data for 1992.
Once the revision is published, it will also be made available on the
Board's web site
(www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17). The revised data will also be available
through the web
site of the Department of Commerce.
Further information on these revisions is
available from
the Board's Industrial Output Section (telephone 202-452-3197).

and
the electric and gas utilities industries. The release also includes monthly
indexes on
the use of electric power in manufacturing and mining. Files containing data in
the
release and historical data are available under statistical releases at
http://www.federalreserve.gov, the Board's World Wide Web site. For paid access
to these files through the Department of Commerce's Economic Bulletin Board or
World Wide Web site, please call STAT-USA at 1-800-STAT-USA or (202) 452-1986.
Diskettes containing historical data and the data published in this release are
available from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Publications
Services, (202) 452-3245.
Industrial Production
Coverage. The industrial production (IP) index measures output in the
manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities industries; the reference
period
for the index is 1992. For the period since 1992, the total IP index has been
constructed from 267 individual series based on the 1987 Standard Industrial
Classification (SIC). These individual series are classified in two ways: (1)
market
groups (shown in table 1), such as consumer goods, equipment, intermediate
products, and materials; and (2) industry groups (shown in tables 2 and 6), such
as
two-digit SIC industries and major aggregates of these industries-for example,
durable and nondurable manufacturing, mining, and utilities.
Market groups. For purposes of analysis, the individual IP series are grouped

into
final products, intermediate products, and materials. Final products are assumed
to be
purchased by consumers, businesses, or government for final use. Intermediate
products are expected to become inputs in nonindustrial sectors, such as
construction, agriculture, and services. Materials are industrial output
requiring
further processing within the industrial sector. Total products comprise final
and
intermediate products, and final products are divided into consumer goods and
equipment.
Timing. The first estimate of output for a month is published around the 15th of
the
following month. The estimate is preliminary (denoted by the superscript "p" in
tables) and subject to revision in each of the subsequent three months as new
source
data become available. (Revised estimates are denoted by the superscript "r" in
tables.) After the fourth month, indexes are not revised further until the time
of an
annual revision or a benchmark revision. The last three benchmark revisions were
published in 1990, 1985, and 1976.
Source data. In annual or benchmark revisions, the individual IP indexes are
constructed from a variety of source data, such as the quinquennial Censuses of
Manufactures and Mineral Industries and the Annual Survey of Manufactures,
prepared by the Bureau of the Census; the Minerals Yearbook, prepared by the
Department of the Interior; and publications of the Department of Energy. On a
monthly basis, the individual indexes of industrial production are constructed
from
two main types of source data: (1) output measured in physical units and (2) data
on
inputs to the production process, from which output is inferred. Data on physical
products, such as tons of steel or barrels of oil, are obtained from private
trade
associations as well as from government agencies including those listed above;
data
of this type are used to estimate monthly IP where possible and appropriate. When
suitable data on physical product are unavailable, estimates of output are based
on
either production-worker hours or electric power use by industry. Data on hours
worked by production workers are collected in the monthly establishment survey
conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data on electric power use are
described below. The factors used to convert inputs into estimates of production
are
based on historical relationships between the inputs and the comprehensive data
used
to benchmark the IP indexes; these factors also may be influenced by
technological
or cyclical developments. Especially for the first and second estimates for a
given
month, the available source data are limited and subject to revision.
Weights. In the index, series that measure the output of an individual industry
are
weighted according to their proportion in the total value-added output of all
industries. The industrial production index, which extends back to 1919, is built
as an

annually weighted chain-type index since 1977. The components of IP are combined
using estimates of value added per unit of output. For months from January to
June,
the weights are drawn from the year containing the month being estimated and the
preceding year; for months from July to December, the weights are drawn from the
current and following year. The IP proportions shown in column 1 of tables 1A,
2A,
and 6 are estimates of the industries' relative contributions to overall growth
in the
following year. For example, a 1 percent increase in durable goods manufacturing
in
1997 would account for an increase in total IP of nearly 1/2 percent.
Seasonal adjustment. Individual series are seasonally adjusted by the X-11 ARIMA
method, developed at Statistics Canada. For series based on production-worker
hours, the current seasonal factors were estimated with data through October
1998;
for other series, the factors were estimated with data through at least June
1998.
Series are preadjusted for the effects of holidays or the business cycle where
appropriate. For the data since 1977, all seasonally adjusted aggregate indexes
are
calculated by aggregating the seasonally adjusted indexes of the individual
series.
Reliability. The average revision to the level of the total IP index, without
regard to
sign, between the first and the fourth estimates was 0.28 percent during the
1987-97
period. The average revision to the percent change in total IP, without regard
to sign,
from the first to the fourth estimates was 0.21 percentage point during the 198797
period. In most cases (about 83 percent), the direction of change in output
indicated
by the first estimate for a given month is the same as that shown by the fourth
estimate.
Rounding. The published percent changes are calculated from unrounded indexes,
and may not be the same as percent changes calculated from the rounded indexes
shown in the release.
Capacity Utilization
Definition. Capacity utilization is calculated for the manufacturing, mining,
and
electric and gas utilities industries. For a given industry, the utilization
rate is equal to
an output index divided by a capacity index. Output is measured by seasonally
adjusted indexes of industrial production. The capacity indexes attempt to
capture
the concept of sustainable practical capacity, which is defined as the greatest
level of
output that a plant can maintain within the framework of a realistic work
schedule,
taking account of normal downtime, and assuming sufficient availability of inputs
to
operate the machinery and equipment in place. The 76 individual capacity indexes

are based on a variety of data, including capacity data measured in physical
units
compiled by trade associations, surveys of utilization rates and investment, and
estimates of growth of the capital input.
Groups. Estimates of capacity and utilization are available for a variety of
groups,
including primary and advanced processing industries within manufacturing,
durable and nondurable manufacturing, total manufacturing, mining, utilities, and
total industry. Component industries of the primary and advanced processing
groups
within manufacturing are listed in the note on tables 2 and 3 of the release.
Weights. Although each utilization rate is the result of dividing an IP series
by a
corresponding capacity index, aggregate utilization rates are equivalent to
combinations of individual utilization rates aggregated with proportions that
reflect
current capacity levels of output valued in current-period value added per unit
of
actual output. The implied proportions of individual industry operating rates in
the
rate for total industry for the most recent year are shown in the first column of
table 3.
Perspective. The historical highs and lows in capacity utilization shown in the
tables
above are specific to each series and did not all occur in the same month.
Industrial
plants usually operate at capacity utilization rates that are well below 100
percent:
none of the broad aggregates has ever reached 100 percent. For total industry and
total manufacturing, utilization rates have exceeded 90 percent only in wartime.
Electric Power
Data on electric power (expressed in kilowatt hours) are collected by the Federal
Reserve District Banks from electric utilities and also from manufacturing and
mining establishments that generate electric power for their own use
(cogenerators).
The indexes of power use shown in table 9 are sums of kilowatt hours used by an
industry or industry group expressed as a percentage of that industry's or
group's
usage in 1992. The first column of the table shows, for reference, electric
power use
in billions of kilowatt hours as reported by manufacturing and mining industries
in
the 1992 censuses of those industries. The supplementary group, "Total, less
nuclear
nondefense," is shown separately because the value-added proportion for the
nondefense nuclear material series (part of SIC 2819) in total IP is considerably
smaller than its share of total electric power use. Excluding this component
from total
power use facilitates comparisons with total IP.
