INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY UTILIZATION
Industrial production rose 0.2 percent in June, after gains of 0.5 percent
in May and 0.8
percent in April. At 144.6 percent of its 1992 average, industrial production in
June was 5.8
percent higher than in June 1999. For the second quarter as a whole, the total
index increased at
an annual rate of 7.0 percent, up from a first-quarter pace of 6.5 percent. The
output of mines
and utilities picked up in the second quarter, while the growth of manufacturing
output remained
close to an annual rate of 7.0 percent for a third consecutive quarter. The
strength in
manufacturing this year has principally come from the high-technology industries
(computers,
semiconductors, and communications equipment); excluding those industries,
manufacturing has
increased at an annual rate of only 1.0 percent since the fourth quarter of last
year. The rate of
capacity utilization for total industry edged down in June to 82.1 percent, a
level about even with
the 1967-99 average.
Market Groups
------------The output of consumer goods edged down 0.1 percent in June; an increase of
0.5 percent
in the production of durable consumer goods was more than offset by a decline in
the production
of nondurables. The gain in the production of durable consumer goods was the
result of a 1.7
percent rebound in the output of automotive products. In contrast, the output of
other consumer
durable goods decreased 0.5 percent, as the production of goods for the home,
such as
appliances, furniture, and carpeting, fell again. The decline in nondurable
consumer goods was
concentrated in energy products; the demand for electricity by households, which
had shot up in
April and May, fell back. The production of nondurable non-energy consumer goods
edged up
0.1 percent, with solid gains in the production of consumer chemicals and paper
products nearly
offset by a decline in the output of clothing.
The production of business equipment, which had increased more than 1-1/4
percent per
month from January to April, increased only 0.4 percent in June after a 0.6
percent advance in
May. The production of high-technology equipment continued to rise strongly in

June: The
production of information processing and related equipment increased 1.3 percent
on the
strength of advances in the output of communications equipment and computers.
The
production index for the other equipment category also turned up sharply because
of a jump in
the output of farm machinery and equipment. However, the output of transit
equipment fell
again in June because of a continued decline in the production of commercial
aircraft and a
reduction in the production of medium and heavy trucks. In addition, the
production of
industrial equipment fell back 0.4 percent, largely reversing the gains in April
and May; most of
the decrease reflected a decline in the output of construction machinery.
The production index for construction supplies fell 1.0 percent in June
after having
decreased 0.9 percent in May; for both months, declines in underlying industries
were
widespread. Since peaking in April, the index for construction supplies has
retraced more than
half of the increase posted earlier in the year. The output of materials was up
0.7 percent in
June, a gain somewhat smaller than the average for the preceding three months.
The output of
durable goods materials rose 1.2 percent, with another strong increase in the
production of parts
for equipment and for consumer goods; however, the output of basic metals fell
again in June.
The production of nondurable goods materials dropped 0.5 percent, and the output
of energy
materials was unchanged.
Industry Groups
--------------Manufacturing output rose 0.3 percent in June, after having advanced an
average of 0.6
percent per month since the end of last year. The production of durable goods
rose further, and
the production of nondurable goods declined again. Among durable goods,
continued increases
in the production of high-technology goods accounted for most of the overall
gain; however,
output in some industries, such as primary metals and construction-related
industries, has
weakened recently. The output of nondurables slipped another 0.2 percent, a move
led by
decreases in petroleum refining and in the production of apparel and paper.
The factory operating rate, at 81.3 percent, was unchanged. The utilization
rate for
primary-processing industries decreased, to 82.8 percent, and that for advancedprocessing
industries edged up, to 80.9 percent.
The output of utilities fell back 2.5 percent following sharp gains in the
preceding two
months; the operating rate at utilities fell to 88.9 percent. Production at

mines increased 1.1
percent after having fallen 0.2 percent in May; the utilization rate at mines
rose to 85.9 percent.

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.
