Resampling of industries.

Effective with the release of data for July 2002, the Producer Price Index (PPI) includes data for 19 resampled industries. The Bureau of Labor Statistics periodically updates the sample of producers providing data for the PPI to more accurately reflect current conditions when the structure, membership, technology, of product mix of an industry shifts. The first results of this systematic process were published in July 1986. Subsequent efforts have been completed at 6-month intervals.

Also effective with this release, PPIs for two service industries were introduced: Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 4833, Television Broadcasting Stations, and SIC 5531, Auto and Home Supply Stores. The index data for SIC 4833 have a start date of June 2001, while the index data for SIC 5531 have a start date of December 2001. The introduction of these industries is part of an ongoing effort to expand PPI coverage to sectors of the economy other than mining and manufacturing.

For information on specific index additions, deletions, and recodes that are effective with this semiannual update, contact the Division of Industrial Prices and Price Indexes, Section of Index Analysis and Public Information at or (202) 691-7705.
