G17: G.17 Data for March 2018 are now available

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 13:15:00 GMT2018-04-17T13:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for March 2018 are now available.

Industrial production rose 0.5 percent in March after increasing 1.0 percent in February; the index advanced 4.5 percent at an annual rate for the first quarter as a whole. After having climbed 1.5 percent in February, manufacturing production edged up 0.1 percent in March. Mining output rose 1.0 percent, mostly as a result of gains in oil and gas extraction and in support activities for mining. The index for utilities jumped 3.0 percent after being suppressed in February by warmer-than-normal temperatures. At 107.2 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production was 4.3 percent higher in March than it was a year earlier. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector moved up 0.3 percentage point in March to 78.0 percent, a rate that is 1.8 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2017) average.

The annual revision to industrial production and capacity utilization was published on March 23, 2018. Data referred to in the release dated March 16, 2018, were superseded by the data issued at the time of the annual revision.

G17: G.17 Annual Revision Released

Fri, 23 Mar 2018 16:00:00 GMT2018-03-23T16:00:00Z

The Federal Reserve has revised its index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. On net, the revisions to total IP for recent years were negative: For the 2015-17 period, the current estimates show rates of change that are 0.4 to 0.7 percentage point lower in each year. Total IP is still reported to have moved up about 22 1/2 percent from the end of the recession in mid-2009 through late 2014. Subsequently, the index declined in 2015, edged down in 2016, and increased in 2017. The incorporation of detailed data for manufacturing from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2016 Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM) accounts for the majority of the differences between the current and the previously published estimates.Revisions to capacity for total industry were mixed. Capacity growth was revised up about 1/2 percentage point for 2016, but revisions to other recent years were negative. Capacity for total industry is estimated to have expanded less than 1 percent in 2015, 2016, and 2017, but it is expected to increase about 2 percent in 2018.

G17: G.17 Data for February 2018 are now available

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 13:15:00 GMT2018-03-16T13:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for February 2018 are now available.

Industrial production rose 1.1 percent in February following a decline of 0.3 percent in January. Manufacturing production increased 1.2 percent in February, its largest gain since October. Mining output jumped 4.3 percent, mostly reflecting strong gains in oil and gas extraction. The index for utilities fell 4.7 percent, as warmer-than-normal temperatures last month reduced the demand for heating. At 108.2 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in February was 4.4 percent higher than it was a year earlier. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector climbed 0.7 percentage point in February to 78.1 percent, its highest reading since January 2015 but still 1.7 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2017) average.

H41: Change to H.4.1 to reflect the passage of the "Bipartisan Budget Bill of 2018"

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 21:30:00 GMT2018-03-01T21:30:00Z

The Board's H.4.1 statistical release, "Factors Affecting Reserve Balances of Depository Institutions and Condition Statement of Federal Reserve Banks," has been modified to reflect the policies under which Federal Reserve Banks make payments of their residual net earnings to the U.S. Treasury. The "Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018" ("Budget Act"), which was enacted on February 9, 2018, requires that aggregate Federal Reserve Bank capital surplus not exceed $7.5 billion. Therefore, any amount of aggregate Federal Reserve Bank capital surplus that exceeds this limit will be remitted to the U.S. Treasury. The amounts of the line items "Other liabilities and capital" on table 1, and "Surplus" on tables 5 and 6 reflect the lump-sum payment of approximately $2.5 billion to the Treasury on February 22, 2018, which was necessary to reduce aggregate Reserve Bank capital surplus to the $7.5 billion limitation in the Budget Act.

Capacity in the mining sector is estimated to rise 6.3 percent in 2018 following a smaller increase of 2.7 percent in 2017. Capacity at electric and natural gas utilities is projected to increase 2.5 percent in 2018 after moving up 0.7 percent in 2017.




G17: G.17 Annual Revision to be released on March 23, 2018

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 14:00:00 GMT2018-02-15T14:00:00Z

The Federal Reserve Board plans to issue its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity utilization on March 23, 2018. New annual benchmark data for 2016 for manufacturing will be incorporated, as will other annual data, including information on the mining of metallic and nonmetallic minerals (except fuels). The updated IP indexes will include revisions to the monthly indicator (either product data or input data) and to seasonal factors for each industry. In addition, the estimation methods for some series may be changed. Any modifications to the methods for estimating the output of an industry will affect the index from 1972 to the present.The revision to the historical data for capacity and capacity utilization will incorporate data through the fourth quarter of 2017 from the U.S. Census Bureau's Quarterly Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization along with new data on capacity from the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Department of Energy, and other organizations.



H10: Change to exchange rate for Venezuela

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 21:15:00 GMT2018-02-12T21:15:00Z

Venezuela's government recently changed its official exchange rate system.

G20: Upcoming changes to the Finance Companies (G.20) release

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 20:00:00 GMT2018-01-30T20:00:00Z

The Federal Reserve Board announced on Tuesday the following changes to the Finance Companies (G.20) statistical release. Starting with the November release, the G.20 release will no longer report the levels and flows of on-book loan and lease balances and off-book securitized loan and lease balances separately. Instead, the G.20 release will start reporting balances of total owned and managed receivables--the sum of on-book and off-book loan and lease balances. The changes are caused by the FASB 166/167 accounting rules implementation in 2010, which required the majority of off-book, securitized assets to be reported on-book. The remaining off-book asset balances have since diminished, with most of them becoming and remaining at zero in recent years. The on-book and off-book levels and flows series will remain available from the Data Downloading Program (DDP). In addition, total owned and managed receivables series will be available from the DDP. The mnemonics of these series are listed in the table located on the technical Q&A page.



H6: MONEY STOCK REVISIONS

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 21:30:00 GMT2018-01-25T21:30:00Z

The Federal Reserve revised its measures of the money stock and their components to incorporate updated seasonal factors and a new quarterly benchmark. This release includes seasonally adjusted measures of the monetary aggregates and components produced with revised seasonal factors, which were derived from data through December 2017 and estimated using the Census Bureau's X-13ARIMA-SEATS seasonal adjustment program.[1] The updated seasonal factors resulted in minor revisions to the growth rates of seasonally adjusted M2 for individual months in 2017, and they slightly decreased the growth rate for seasonally adjusted M2 in the first half of 2017 and slightly increased it in the second half of 2017. The quarterly benchmark incorporates revisions from several sources. Revisions to weekly deposit data begin in 2003. Revisions to deposit data reported in the quarterly deposit reports and deposit data from Call Reports for banks and thrift institutions that are not weekly or quarterly deposit reporters start in 2016.[2] Revisions to money market mutual fund data begin in 2017. In addition, this benchmark incorporates data from Call Reports on the amount of small-denomination time deposits held in individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and Keogh accounts; the associated revisions to deposit data start in 2017. Likewise, it incorporates revisions to IRA and Keogh balances held at retail and institutional money market mutual funds; the associated revisions to data on money market mutual funds also begin in 2017. In addition, this release incorporates the receipt of historical information from other sources of data. The effects of both the revisions to seasonal factors and the new quarterly benchmark on the growth rates of M1 and M2 are outlined in appendix tables 6 and 7. Historical data, updated each week, are available with the H.6 statistical release at www.federalreserve.gov/econresdata/statisticsdata.htm. --------------------[1] Information on the seasonal adjustment program is available on the U.S. Census Bureau website at https://www.census.gov/srd/www/x13as. [2] "Call Reports" refers to the commercial bank Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (FFIEC 031, 041, and 051; OMB No. 7100-0036) and the credit union Statement of Financial Condition (NCUA 5300/5300SF; OMB No. 3133-0004).



H8: H.8 DDP data corrected

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 21:15:00 GMT2018-01-19T21:15:00Z

This note provides more information on the changes made to the line items shown on the H.8 release and available through the Federal Reserve's Data Download Program (DDP) that were implemented on January 12, 2018 (for the original description of these changes, see https://www.federalreserve.gov/feeds/h8.html).Effective January 19, 2018, three corrections have been made to the presentation of data available in the DDP:1. Historical Data for the discontinued items had remained alongside current items in the DDP as of January 12, 2018. For now, the discontinued items have been removed from the DDP because discontinued items are no longer comingled with current items in the DDP. Data for the discontinued items will be made separately available in the DDP in the future.2. Data for the new combined items--Other assets including trading assets (line 32), Borrowings (line 37), and Other liabilities including trading liabilities (line 37)--had been incorrectly omitted for the week ending January 6, 2010. These gaps in the data caused the levels of total assets and total liabilities to also be incorrect that week. In addition, these gaps caused distortions in the associated monthly average data for January 2010. This issue has been corrected.3. The historical series for the new item, Total Federal funds and reverse RPs (line 30), was not included in the DDP. This issue has been corrected.



H10: Foreign Exchange Rates - H.10 DDP data corrected

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 21:15:00 GMT2018-01-17T21:15:00Z

G17: G.17 Data for December 2017 are now available

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 14:15:00 GMT2018-01-17T14:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for December 2017 are now available.

Industrial production rose 0.9 percent in December even though manufacturing output only edged up 0.1 percent. Revisions to mining and utilities altered the pattern of growth for October and November, but the level of the overall index in November was little changed. For the fourth quarter as a whole, total industrial production jumped 8.2 percent at an annual rate after being held down in the third quarter by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. At 107.5 percent of its 2012 average, the index has increased 3.6 percent since December 2016 for its largest calendar-year gain since 2010.

The gain in manufacturing output in December was its fourth consecutive monthly increase. The output of utilities advanced 5.6 percent for the month, while the index for mining moved up 1.6 percent. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector was 77.9 percent, a rate that is 2.0 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2016) average.

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 21:15:00 GMT2018-01-12T21:15:00Z

Effective with this release, several changes have been made to the line items shown on the H.8 release. These changes relate to the Federal Reserve Board's notice published in the Federal Register, 82 FR 49207 on October 24, 2017. The following line item changes have been made on the release: 1.

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 14:15:00 GMT2017-12-15T14:15:00Z

The Federal Reserve Board plans to issue its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity utilization around the end of the first quarter of 2018. New annual benchmark data for 2016 will be incorporated for manufacturing, as will other annual data, including information on the mining of metallic and nonmetallic minerals (except fuels). The updated IP indexes will include revisions to the monthly indicator (either product data or input data) and to seasonal factors for each industry. In addition, the estimation methods for some series may be changed. Any modifications to the methods for estimating the output of an industry will affect the index from 1972 to the present.Capacity and capacity utilization will be revised to incorporate data through the fourth quarter of 2017 from the U.S. Census Bureau's Quarterly Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization along with new data on capacity from the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Department of Energy, and other organizations.

G17: G.17 Data for October 2017 are now available

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:15:00 GMT2017-11-16T14:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for October 2017 are now available.

Industrial production rose 0.9 percent in October, and manufacturing increased 1.3 percent. The index for utilities rose 2.0 percent, but mining output fell 1.3 percent, as Hurricane Nate caused a sharp but short-lived decline in oil and gas drilling and extraction. Even so, industrial activity was boosted in October by a return to normal operations after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma suppressed production in August and September.[1] Excluding the effects of the hurricanes, the index for total output advanced about 0.3 percent in October, and the index for manufacturing advanced about 0.2 percent.

[1] A technical Q&A discussing the effects of the recent hurricanes on industrial production is available on the Federal Reserve Board's website at https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17/g17_technical_qa.htm#HarveyIrmaNate2017.

The rates of change for July and August were notably revised; the current estimate for July, a decrease of 0.1 percent, was 0.5 percentage point lower than previously reported, while the estimate for August, a decrease of 0.7 percent, was 0.2 percentage point higher than before. The estimates for manufacturing, mining, and utilities were each revised lower in July. The continued effects of Hurricane Harvey and, to a lesser degree, the effects of Hurricane Irma combined to hold down the growth in total production in September by 1/4 percentage point.[1] For the third quarter as a whole, industrial production fell 1.5 percent at an annual rate; excluding the effects of the hurricanes, the index would have risen at least 1/2 percent. Manufacturing output edged up 0.1 percent in September but fell 2.2 percent at an annual rate in the third quarter. The indexes for mining and utilities in September rose 0.4 percent and 1.5 percent, respectively. At 104.6 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in September was 1.6 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector increased 0.2 percentage point in September to 76.0 percent, a rate that is 3.9 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2016) average.

Following a six-month string of increases beginning in September 2016, factory output was little changed, on net, between February and July. The indexes for mining and utilities in July rose 0.5 percent and 1.6 percent, respectively. At 105.5 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production was 2.2 percent above its year-earlier level.

G17: G.17 Data for March 2017 are now available

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 13:15:00 GMT2017-04-18T13:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for March 2017 are now available.

Industrial production increased 0.5 percent in March after moving up 0.1 percent in February. The increase in March was more than accounted for by a jump of 8.6 percent in the output of utilities-the largest in the history of the index-as the demand for heating returned to seasonal norms after being suppressed by unusually warm weather in February. Manufacturing output fell 0.4 percent in March, led by a large step-down in the production of motor vehicles and parts; factory output aside from motor vehicles and parts moved down 0.2 percent. The production at mines edged up 0.1 percent. For the first quarter as a whole, industrial production rose at an annual rate of 1.5 percent. At 104.1 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in March was 1.5 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector increased 0.4 percentage point in March to 76.1 percent, a rate that is 3.8 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2016) average.




G17: Introduction of Reliability Estimates for Industrial Production Indexes

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 13:15:00 GMT2017-04-18T13:15:00Z

With the G.17 statistical release on April 18, 2017, the Federal Reserve Board began publishing estimates of the reliability of the levels and the rates of change (monthly and quarterly) of the reported production indexes for total industry, manufacturing, mining, and utilities. The reliability estimates are designed to give data users a sense of the typical range into which a statistic will likely end up after its final (fifth) revision in a monthly release. The reliability estimates are based on the revision history for the indexes back to 2008; each G.17 release will include estimates for those months and quarters for which either new or updated estimates were issued that month. A detailed explanation is available on the Board's website at https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17/revisions/Current/DefaultRev.htm.

The reliability estimates are issued in table 15 of the G.17 release, available on the Board's website at https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17/20170418/default.htm. A text file that contains the estimates is also available on the Federal Reserve's website at https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17/ipdisk/revh_sa.txt.

G17: G.17 Annual Revision Released

Fri, 31 Mar 2017 16:38:00 GMT2017-03-31T16:38:00Z

The Federal Reserve has revised its index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity and capacity utilization. On net, the revisions were small, and the contour of total IP is little changed. Total IP is still reported to have moved up about 22 percent from the end of the recession in mid-2009 through late 2014, to have declined in 2015, and to have moved sideways in 2016. The most notable difference between the current and the previous estimates is that total IP is now reported to have decreased about 2 3/4 percent in 2015, whereas it previously showed a decline of about 1 3/4 percent.[2] The incorporation of detailed data for manufacturing from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2015 Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM) accounts for the majority of the differences between the current and the previously published estimates.

G17: G.17 Annual Revision to be released at noon (EDT) on March 31, 2017

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 13:15:00 GMT2017-03-17T13:15:00Z

The Federal Reserve Board plans to issue its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity utilization at 12:00 noon (EDT) on March 31, 2017. New annual benchmark data for 2015 for manufacturing will be incorporated, as will other annual data, including information on the mining of metallic and nonmetallic minerals (except fuels). The updated IP indexes will include revisions to the monthly indicator (either product data or input data) and to seasonal factors for each industry. In addition, the estimation methods for some series may be changed. Any modifications to the methods for estimating the output of an industry will affect the index from 1972 to the present.Capacity and capacity utilization will be revised to incorporate data through the fourth quarter of 2016 from the U.S. Census Bureau's Quarterly Survey of Plant Capacity along with new data on capacity from the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Department of Energy, and other organizations.



G17: G.17 Data for February 2017 are now available

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 13:15:00 GMT2017-03-17T13:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for February 2017 are now available.

Industrial production was unchanged in February following a 0.1 percent decrease in January. In February, manufacturing output moved up 0.5 percent for its sixth consecutive monthly increase. Mining output jumped 2.7 percent, but the index for utilities fell 5.7 percent, as continued unseasonably warm weather further reduced demand for heating. At 104.7 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in February was 0.3 percent above its level of a year earlier. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector declined 0.1 percentage point in February to 75.4 percent, a rate that is 4.5 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2016) average.




G17: Seasonal Factors for auto and truck production have been revised

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 12:21:00 GMT2017-03-17T12:21:00Z

Seasonal factors for auto and truck production were revised back to January 1996 and extended through June 2018 on March 17, 2017. The revised factors for September 2016 through February 2017 were used in the G.17 release published on March 17, 2017, and the revised factors for earlier months will be incorporated into the production estimates at the time of the annual revision on March 31, 2017. The revised seasonal factors are based on production data through January 2017. The revised factors also correct an error in the number of holidays for January 2017, which had previously been understated. The seasonal factors will be revised again in March 2018.

G17: G.17 Data for January 2017 are now available

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 14:15:00 GMT2017-02-15T14:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for January 2017 are now available.

Industrial production decreased 0.3 percent in January following a 0.6 percent increase in December. In January, manufacturing output moved up 0.2 percent, and mining output jumped 2.8 percent. The index for utilities fell 5.7 percent, largely because unseasonably warm weather reduced the demand for heating. At 104.6 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in January was at about the same level as it was a year earlier. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector fell 0.3 percentage point in January to 75.3 percent, a rate that is 4.6 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2016) average.




G17: G.17 Preliminary Estimates of Industry Capacity

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 14:15:00 GMT2017-02-15T14:15:00Z

The data in the February 15, 2017 release include preliminary estimates of industrial capacity for 2017. Measured from fourth quarter to fourth quarter, total industrial capacity is projected to rise 1.3 percent this year after increasing 0.4 percent in 2016. Manufacturing capacity is expected to advance 1.1 percent in 2017, somewhat faster than the 0.7 percent pace in 2016. Capacity in the mining sector is estimated to rise 0.9 percent in 2017 after falling 3.4 percent in 2016. Capacity at electric and natural gas utilities is projected to increase 0.8 percent, about the same rate as in the three previous years.




H6: MONEY STOCK REVISIONS

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 21:30:00 GMT2017-01-26T21:30:00Z

The Federal Reserve revised its measures of the money stock and their components to incorporate updated seasonal factors and a new quarterly benchmark. This release includes seasonally adjusted measures of the monetary aggregates and components produced with revised seasonal factors, which were derived from data through December 2016 and estimated using the Census Bureau's X-13 ARIMA-SEATS seasonal adjustment program.[1] The updated seasonal factors resulted in minor revisions to the growth rates of seasonally adjusted M2 for individual months in 2016, slightly pushing up the growth rate for seasonally adjusted M2 in the first half of 2016 and pulling it down slightly in the second half of 2016. This release also includes a new quarterly benchmark, which incorporates minor revisions to data reported in the quarterly deposit reports and takes account of deposit data from Call Reports for banks and thrift institutions that are not weekly or quarterly deposit reporters.[2] These revisions to deposit data start in 2015. In addition, this release incorporates data from Call Reports on the amount of small-denomination time deposits held in individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and Keogh accounts; related revisions to deposit data start in 2016. Likewise, the benchmark incorporates revisions to IRA and Keogh balances held at retail and institutional money market mutual funds; these revisions to data on money market mutual funds begin in 2007. This release also incorporates the receipt of historical information from other sources of data. The effects of both the revisions to seasonal factors and the new quarterly benchmark on the growth rates of M1 and M2 are [...]



G17: G.17 Data for December 2016 are now available

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 14:15:00 GMT2017-01-18T14:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for December 2016 are now available.

Industrial production rose 0.8 percent in December after falling 0.7 percent in November. For the fourth quarter as a whole, the index slipped 0.6 percent at an annual rate. In December, manufacturing output moved up 0.2 percent and mining output was unchanged. The index for utilities jumped 6.6 percent, largely because of a return to more normal temperatures following unseasonably warm weather in November; the gain last month was the largest since December 1989. At 104.6 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in December was 0.5 percent above its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector increased 0.6 percentage point in December to 75.5 percent, a rate that is 4.5 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2015) average.

G17: G.17 Data for October 2016 are now available

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 14:15:00 GMT2016-11-16T14:15:00Z

Industrial production and capacity utilization data for October 2016 are now available.

Industrial production was unchanged in October after decreasing 0.2 percent in September. Although the level of industrial production in September was the same as the previous estimate, revisions to the index for utilities raised the rate of change in total industrial production in August and lowered it in September. In October, manufacturing output increased 0.2 percent, and mining posted a gain of 2.1 percent for its largest increase since March 2014. The index for utilities dropped 2.6 percent, as warmer-than-normal temperatures reduced the demand for heating. At 104.3 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in October was 0.9 percent lower than its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector edged down 0.1 percentage point in October to 75.3 percent, a rate that is 4.7 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2015) average.
