Supplemental Files Table of Contents
The Producer Price Index for final demand advanced 0.5 percent in March, seasonally adjusted,
the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. This increase followed a decline of 0.1
percent in February and a rise of 0.2 percent in January. On an unadjusted basis, the index for
final demand moved up 1.4 percent for the 12 months ended in March, the largest 12-month
advance since a 1.7-percent increase in August 2013. (See table A.)
In March, the 0.5-percent increase in final demand prices can be traced to the index for final
demand services, which rose 0.7 percent. Prices for final demand goods were unchanged.
Within intermediate demand, the index for processed goods declined 0.2 percent, prices for
unprocessed goods edged down 0.1 percent, and the index for services rose 0.4 percent. (See
tables B and C.)
