The Producer Price Index for final demand rose 0.2 percent in October, seasonally adjusted, the
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. This increase followed a 0.1-percent decline in
September and no change in August. On an unadjusted basis, the index for final demand
advanced 1.5 percent for the 12 months ended in October, the smallest 12-month increase since a
1.2-percent rise in February 2014. (See table A.)

unprocessed goods fell 2.4 percent, and prices for services inched up 0.1 percent. (See tables B
