        During the fourth quarter, the Federal Reserve will publish revisions of its measures of industrial production (IP), capacity, capacity utilization, and industrial use of electric power; the current target for publishing the revision is late November. Wharton measures of utilization have grown sig-nificantly higher than those calculated by other groups. During the business cycle peak in , for example, the Federal Reserve estimated that the capacity utilization rate in manufacturing was percent, indicating a fair amount of spare capacity in the economy. The Wharton rate during tnis pe-.

In this paper, we review the history and concepts behind the Federal Reserve's measures of capacity and capacity utilization, summarize the methods used to construct the measures, and describe the principal source data for these measures--the Census Bureau's Survey of Plant Capacity. We show that the aggregate manufacturing utilization rate from the Survey of Plant Capacity .

Capacity and Capacity Utilization Methodology. The Federal Reserve Board's capacity indexes attempt to capture the concept of sustainable maximum output, the greatest level of output a plant can maintain within the framework of a realistic work schedule after factoring in normal downtime and assuming sufficient availability of inputs to operate the capital in place.

The concept. The Federal Reserve Board plans to issue its annual revision to the indexes of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity utilization in the second half of New annual benchmark data for manufacturing for and will be incorporated, as well as other annual data, including information on the mining of metallic.

The Federal Reserve's Measures of Capacity and Utilization The Federal Reserve publishes an index of capacity utilization for manufacturing as a whole with data available since and for industries at the two-digit standard industrial classification (SIC) level with data since The capacity indexes are matched to selected components.

IN LATEcapacity utilization in U.S. industry reached its highest level since early As measured by the Federal Reserve Board, capacity utilization in manufacturing industries was The U.S. Census Bureau and the Federal Reserve prepare the two most widely disseminated indexes of capacity utilization.

This article, the second of a two-part series on capacity utilization, explains how the indexes are constructed and analyzes the advantages and shortcomings of both approaches.

Total IP is now reported to have increased about 2 1/2 percent per year, on average, from through before falling 1 1/2 percent in Relative to earlier reports, the current rates of change are lower, especially for and Federal Reserve measures of capacity and capacity utilization.

Only that part of the initial capacity indexes related to the other measures of capacity expansion is 1 The Survey of Plant Capacity began in and is jointly funded by the Federal Reserve.

As a result, capacity estimates can be directly compared to the target capacity measures. Capacity utilization measures at the fleet level also provide additional guidance for managers as to where capacity management may be most required. A drawback of the technique is that it does not take into account random variations in the data.

[41]. Economists are always looking for ways to better understand and predict the business cycle. Studying capacity utilization can help. Capacity is the maximum volume of productive resources that can be used by firms to produce ty utilization is how much of that available capacity is actually being used to produce goods.

The capacity index tries to measure the utilization rate of. of the Federal Reserve System measures capacity utilization as the ratio of industrial production to industrial capacity’ Since the denominator in this ratio normalizes industrial production by a measure of the potential industrial output of the economy the ratio provides a cyclical measure of industrial output.

The Boards measure. At the detailed industry level, utilization rates from the Survey of Plant Capacity for several industries do appear to possess a cyclical bias, but we demonstrate that this bias is removed in the construction of the Federal Reserve capacity measures.

We further show that the Federal Reserve measures, by combining the Census survey utilization Author: Norman Morin, John Stevens. Units: Percent of Capacity, Seasonally Adjusted Frequency: Quarterly Notes: For a given industry, the capacity utilization rate is equal to an output index divided by a capacity index.

Data. The average economy-wide capacity utilization rate in the US since was about %, according to the Federal Reserve measure. The figure for Europe is not much different, for Japan being only slightly higher. Manufacturing production rose % last month after an unrevised % drop in July, the Federal Reserve said.

Capacity utilization, a measure of how fully firms are using their resources.
