Federal Reserve Computer Storage Price Index

Release Date: February 8, 2024

Updated annual price indexes for computer storage equipment, the primary product of North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industry 334112, "Computer Storage Device Manufacturing," are provided below. These price indexes provide an estimate of price changes for computer storage equipment assuming that the quality of the device is unchanged. Data from IDC, a market research 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 first incorporated into the industrial production index for computer storage equipment at the time of the 2016 annual revision to the G.17 statistical release on industrial production and capacity utilization, which was published on April 1, 2016. The updated computer storage price index will be incorporated in the 2024 G.17 annual revision. More details on the data sources and index construction are available in a FEDS Note.

Comma-delimited text files containing the price index are available for download: Annual Data, Quarterly Data.
