This manual updates Wholesale Price Indices: Principles and Procedures published in 1980. The old wholesale Price Indices were relabelled Producer Price Indices in 1983 to better reflect the nature of the subject matter. In the years since then, there have been several other important developments including:
use of statutory powers of collection,
new technology to collect data,
reclassification of the indices to a new Standard Industrial Classification (SIC),
a new PPI sampling strategy.
It was felt that the many changes since 1980 and the large amount of interest in the monthly Producer Price Index justify this publication.
