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. Additional discussion about the estimation process is available at https://doi.org/10.17016/2380-7172.2086

G17: G.17 Technical Q&A on the effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on August and September IP

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 13:15:00 GMT2017-10-17T13:15:00Z

A new Technical Q&A has been posted that shows estimates of the hurricane-related contributions to the rates of change for IP in August and September for several groupings of industries.]>2017-10-20T13:15:00-04:00enFRBend=9999-12-31T00:00:00-05:00G.17 Technical Q&A on the effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on August and September IP2017-10-20T13:15:00-04:00G17G17: G.17 Data for September 2017 are now availablehttp://www.federalreserve.gov/feeds/DataDownload.html#1943Industrial production and capacity utilization data for September 2017 are now available.

Industrial production rose 0.3 percent in September. 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.

A technical Q&A discussing the effect of Hurricane Harvey on industrial production for August will be published on the Board's website at https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17/g17_technical_qa.htm#hurricaneharvey2017. Additional discussion about the estimation process is available at https://doi.org/10.17016/2380-7172.2086.

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

Industrial production rose 0.2 percent in July following an increase of 0.4 percent in June. In July, manufacturing output edged down 0.1 percent; the production of motor vehicles and parts fell substantially, but that decrease was mostly offset by a net gain of 0.2 percent for other manufacturing industries. 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. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector was unchanged in July at 76.7 percent, a rate that is 3.2 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2016) average.

The index for mining posted a gain of 1.6 percent in June, just slightly below its pace in May. The index for utilities, however, remained unchanged. For the second quarter as a whole, industrial production advanced at an annual rate of 4.7 percent, primarily as a result of strong increases for mining and utilities. Manufacturing output rose at an annual rate of 1.4 percent, a slightly slower increase than in the first quarter. At 105.2 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in June was 2.0 percent above its year-earlier level.

G17: Revised Estimates of Industrial Capacity

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 13:15:00 GMT2017-07-14T13:15:00Z

The estimates for industrial capacity in 2017 were revised for today's G.17 release.The revisions reflect updated measures of physical capacity from various government and private sources as well as updated estimates of capital spending by industry. Measured from the fourth quarter of 2016 to the fourth quarter of 2017, capacity indexes for the industrial sector and for manufacturing are now expected to increase 1.1 percent and 0.7 percent, respectively; each gain is 0.1 percentage point higher than previously estimated. Mining capacity is now expected to rise 2.7 percent. This increase is 0.5 percentage point higher than previously estimated, primarily reflecting faster capacity growth for oil and gas extraction. The increase in capacity for utilities is unrevised at 0.7 percent.

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 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 and 041; OMB No. 7100-0036) and the credit union Statement of Financial Condition (NCUA 5300/5300SF; OMB No. 3133-0004).



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.

Beginning October 11, 2016, the Federal Reserve Board will cease publication of the following interest rates on its Selected Interest Rates (H.15) statistical release: Eurodollar deposits, interest rate swaps, corporate bonds, state and local bonds, and conventional mortgages. These interest rates are not produced by the Board and are available from their original sources before they are published by the Board on the H.15. The Board has judged that, given the alternative sources available to the public, the costs of collecting and publishing these data outweigh the benefits. A list of sources for the discontinued data is available at: http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/h15/h15_technical_qa.htm The Board will continue to publish the following interest rates in the H.15 release: federal funds (effective), commercial paper, bank prime loan, discount window primary credit, and U.S. Treasury securities. Additionally, the Board will no longer publish the H.15 in PDF format or publish weekly and monthly averages directly on the H.15. Weekly and monthly averages will continue to be available, along with other historical data, through the Board's Data Download Program.

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

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 13:15:00 GMT2016-09-15T13:15:00Z

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

Industrial production decreased 0.4 percent in August after rising 0.6 percent in July. Manufacturing output also declined 0.4 percent in August, reversing its increase in July; the level of the index in August is little changed from its level in March. Following two consecutive monthly increases, the index for utilities fell back 1.4 percent in August. Even so, the index was 1.7 percent above its year-earlier level, as hot temperatures this summer boosted the usage of air conditioning. The output of mining moved up 1.0 percent in August, its fourth consecutive monthly increase following an extended downturn; the index, however, was still about 9 percent below its year-ago level. At 104.4 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in August was 1.1 percent lower than its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector decreased 0.4 percentage point in August to 75.5 percent, a rate that is 4.5 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2015) average.

G17: Revised Estimates of Industrial Capacity

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:15:00 GMT2016-07-15T13:15:00Z

The estimates for industrial capacity in 2015 were revised for today's G.17 release. The revisions reflect updated measures of physical capacity from various government and private sources as well as updated estimates of capital spending by industry. Capacity for the industrial sector, measured from the fourth quarter of 2015 to the fourth quarter of 2016, is now expected to increase 0.4 percent, a rate that is 0.1 percentage point lower than previously estimated. Manufacturing capacity is now expected to rise 0.7 percent, a pace 0.2 percentage point less than the previous estimate; a smaller increase in the capacity for manufacturing of selected high-technology goods accounts for the downward revision. The decrease in mining capacity for 2016 is unrevised at 3.4 percent, and the gain in capacity for utilities is also unrevised at 0.8 percent.

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

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 13:15:00 GMT2016-06-15T13:15:00Z

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

Industrial production decreased 0.4 percent in May after increasing 0.6 percent in April. Declines in the indexes for manufacturing and utilities in May were slightly offset by a small gain for mining. The output of manufacturing moved down 0.4 percent, led by a large step-down in the production of motor vehicles and parts; factory output aside from motor vehicles and parts edged down 0.1 percent. The index for utilities fell 1.0 percent, as a drop in the output of electric utilities was partly offset by a gain for natural gas utilities. After eight straight monthly declines, the production at mines moved up 0.2 percent. At 103.6 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in May was 1.4 percent below its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector decreased 0.4 percentage point in May to 74.9 percent, a rate that is 5.1 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2015) average.

Industrial production increased 0.7 percent in April after decreasing in the previous two months. Manufacturing output rose 0.3 percent after declining the same amount in March. The index for utilities jumped 5.8 percent in April, as the demand for electricity and natural gas returned to a more normal level after being suppressed by warmer-than-usual weather in March. Mining production fell 2.3 percent in April, and it has decreased more than 1 1/2 percent per month, on average, over the past eight months.

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

Industrial production decreased 0.6 percent in March for a second month in a row. For the first quarter as a whole, industrial production fell at an annual rate of 2.2 percent.

The sizable decrease in mining production continued the industry's recent downward trajectory; the index has fallen in each of the past seven months, at an average pace of 1.6 percent per month. At 103.4 percent of its 2012 average, total industrial production in March was 2.0 percent below its year-earlier level. Capacity utilization for the industrial sector decreased 0.5 percentage point in March to 74.8 percent, a rate that is 5.2 percentage points below its long-run (1972-2015) average.

The Federal Reserve updated its computer storage equipment price index with new data for 2015. The index provides an estimate of year-to-year price changes for computer storage equipment assuming that the quality of the device is unchanged. Data from IDC, a company specializing in information technology industries, were used to construct a matched-model quarterly price index, which was then converted to an annual index. This annual price index was incorporated into the industrial production indexes for computer storage equipment at the time of the annual revision to the G.17 statistical release on industrial production and capacity utilization that was published on April 1, 2016.
