Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization - G.17
The Federal Reserve provides the data from the G.17 release in multiple ways:
- Data Download Program (DDP)
- Text Files
- Related Data
- Manufacturing Investment and Capital
- International Data Submissions
The Data Download Program allows you to retrieve data related to selected Federal Reserve Boad statistical releases, including the G.17. You may build your own custom data package or select a preformatted package. The Data Download Program allows for charting of selected data as well as downloading data in serveral different formats (i.e. Excel, CSV, XML (SDMX)).
The files containing data from 1986 to present are updated each month as part of the G.17 release process.
The historical data, grouped by the table in which they appear in the G.17 release, are available in text files.
The format for each line in the files consists of an industry code,
a year, and 12 months of data (to four decimal places) when available. The data have
various start dates; the earliest is 1919.
Documentation for importing data into Microsoft Excel.
The data and the documentation files are available through the following links. (Tables 4 and 5 are indexes of series found in tables 1 and 2. Data and documentation for table 10 are available through the links for tables 1 and 2. Tables 11, 12, 13, and 14 of the release report a limited range of historical data for major aggregates found in other tables. These tables are, therefore, not reported here.)
- Tables 1, 2 and 10: Industrial Production: Market and Industry Groups (including IP series from tables 1, 2, and tables 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, and 1E of the G.17 Supplement; also includes gross-value-weighted industrial production for stage-of-process groups found in table 10)
- Table 3: Motor Vehicle Assemblies
- Table 6: Diffusion Indexes of Industrial Production
- Tables 7 and 8: Capacity Utilization and Industrial Capacity: Manufacturing, Mining, and Utilities (includes series from tables 7, 8, and tables 2, 3 of the G.17 Supplement)
- Table 9: Industrial Production: Gross Value of Products
- All Tables: Tables 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, and 9
- Relative Importance Weights for Seasonally Adjusted IP.
- Discontinued Data: Electric Power Use: Manufacturing and Mining
A separate set of data and documentation show seasonally adjusted indexes for total industrial production, manufacturing, mining, and utilities as they were originally published and subsequently revised during the normal six-month estimation period (or four-month period before April 2008). In addition, beginning with the estimates for March 2017, real-time estimates for the monthly and quarterly rates of change are included in the file, as are the 15th and 85th percentile values for the IP reliability statistics found in table 15 of the G.17 release.
The Federal Reserve also publishes some industrial data that are not part of the G.17 release:
- August 8, 2017: The Federal Reserve released updated annual information on the real capital stock and both nominal and real investment for detailed industries within the manufacturing sector based on a variety of data sources. These data by industry and broad asset class are provided to the National Bureau of Economic Research-Center for Economic Studies (NBER-CES) Manufacturing Industry Database.
- August 1, 2017: The Federal Reserve has re-estimated seasonal factors for motor vehicle sales, using data through April 2017. These factors are estimated once per year using X12-ARIMA. The factors will be revised again in summer 2018. A comma-delimited text file containing these seasonal factors is available for download.
- March 31, 2017: The Federal Reserve released updated communications equipment price indexes. Comma-delimited text files containing quarterly and annual data are available for download
- March 17, 2017: 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. A comma-delimited text file containing these seasonal factors is available for download.
- April 15, 2016: An annual price index for computer storage equipment for the period 2002 through 2015 is now available. 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. A comma-delimited text file containing annual data is available for download. More details are available here.
- December 16, 2015: The Federal Reserve released updated microprocessor price index with new data for 2012 and 2013. This price index was previously issued in 2013 with data for 2007 through 2011. The updated price index was incorporated into the industrial production index for semiconductors and related electronic components published on July 21, 2015, as a part of the annual revision to the G.17 statistical release on industrial production and capacity utilization. A comma-delimited text file containing annual data is available for download.
- July 21, 2015: The Federal Reserve Board issued its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity utilization on July 21, 2015. The classification system for the industry groups was advanced to the 2012 version of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), and the comparison base year was advanced to 2012. See this notice for more details on the industry code changes.
- June 26, 2013: Industrial Production Seasonal Adjustment Procedures. A file with detailed information on the procedures used to seasonally adjust the Industrial Production Indexes is now available for download.
G.17 data on investment and capital stocks by industry and broad asset class are provided to the National Bureau of Economic Research-Center for Economic Studies (NBER-CES) Manufacturing Industry Database.

G.17 data are provided to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as part of their Special Data Dissemination Standard Plus (SDDS+) program:
G.17 data are provided to the United Nations (UN) as part of their industrial statistics program. Unlike the G17, which is NAICS-based, the UN data are based on the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC), Rev. 4:
- ISIC4 Seasonally Adjusted (Updated: 12/15/2017) Excel
- ISIC4 Not Seasonally Adjusted (Updated: 12/15/2017) Excel
Historical release dates are also available.
Discontinued Data: Electric Power Use: Manufacturing and Mining. The Federal Reserve discontinued its survey of industrial electric power use with the publication on December 15, 2005, of data for October 2005. Although the indexes of electric power use will are no longer updated, the historical indexes will remain available.
