For release
November 15,

INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION
Industrial production edged down 0.1 percent in October after increases in
August and
September that were revised upward. At 146.3 percent of its 1992 average,
industrial production
in October was 5.2 percent higher than in October 1999. The rate of capacity
utilization for total
industry decreased to 82.1 percent, just 0.1 percentage point above its 1967-99
average.
Market Groups
------------The output of consumer goods fell 0.4 percent in October, retracing its
September rise.
The production of durable consumer goods fell 2.5 percent, in large part because
of a drop in the
output of automotive products, particularly auto and light truck assemblies.
Production also
declined across many other categories of consumer durables; the largest of these
other decreases
was in the production of household appliances. By contrast, nondurable consumer
goods rose
0.2 percent, continuing a pattern of small gains posted over the past several
months. Declines in
the output of clothing and consumer energy products were more than offset by
increases in the
production of food and paper products. As a result of unusually warm weather in
October,
residential sales of electricity dropped; in addition, the production of consumer
fuel, including
gasoline, decreased.
The production of business equipment moved up 0.3 percent, its smallest
increase so far
this year. The output of office and computing equipment posted another strong
gain, but it was
less than the average monthly gain for the first three quarters of the year. The
production of
industrial equipment, which had fallen more than 1 percent in September, dropped
0.3 percent
further in October. The output of transit equipment decreased 4 percent, a sharp
drop largely
reflecting declines in motor vehicles. Within the "other equipment" category,
the output of farm
machinery turned up after having fallen substantially in the third quarter.
The production of construction supplies, which had eased in the third
quarter, was little
changed. The index for business supplies declined 0.3 percent, a dropoff mainly
reflecting lower

output of commercial energy products. Among materials, the production of durable
goods
materials slipped 0.2 percent, the first decline in this group in more than a
year. The output of
consumer parts dropped 4.2 percent, with sizable declines in steel and original
equipment motor
vehicle parts. The production of equipment parts recorded another large
increase; as in previous
months, the production of semiconductors posted the strongest gains in this
category. The
output of nondurable goods materials, which stayed flat for the second
consecutive month, was
nearly 3 percent below its level of twelve months earlier. The index for energy
materials
decreased 0.4 percent; cutbacks at utilities more than accounted for the loss.
Industry Groups
--------------Manufacturing output was unchanged following gains of around 1/2 percent in
August
and September; excluding motor vehicles and parts, however, the gain in October
was 0.5
percent. The output of durables decreased, led by losses in motor vehicles and
parts, primary
metals (particularly iron and steel), and furniture and fixtures. Smaller
cutbacks were recorded
in lumber and products, fabricated metal products, instruments, and miscellaneous
manufacturing goods. Offsetting these declines were further gains in the
production of computer
and office equipment and semiconductors. After several months of weakness, the
production of
nondurable goods edged up 0.2 percent, a move buoyed by a 1.0 percent gain in
food and a 0.6
percent gain in printing and publishing. Production declined in the apparel,
textile mill products,
and petroleum products industries.
The overall factory operating rate dropped 0.3 percentage point, to 81.2
percent; capacity
utilization at primary-processing industries fell 0.2 percentage point, to 81.7
percent, while
utilization at advanced-processing industries fell to 81.3 percent.
The output at utilities fell back almost 2 percent in October; mine
production, which was
boosted by increases in coal mining and in oil and gas well drilling, increased
0.7 percent.
Revision of Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization
On December 5, 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 will affect data from 1992 onward.
This statistical release, the G.17, will be redesigned with the publication
of the revision.
Special aggregates will be added; although some detailed industry data will no
longer be listed in
the regular release, they will be available on the Federal Reserve Board's public
web site. A
template of the redesigned tables will be available on the Board's web site on
November 21
(www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17).
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 U.S. 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 to 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 IP 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 be made available on the Board's web
site. 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.
