These data are from the BLS Producer Price Indexes program. To learn more, see “Producer Price Indexes—November 2014” (HTML) (PDF). These estimates are not seasonally adjusted. All producer price indexes are subject to revision once, 4 months after original publication, to reflect late reports and corrections by respondents. The Producer Price Index measures the change in prices that sellers receive for goods, services, and construction sold to final demand. The trade services index measures the difference between the selling price wholesalers and retailers received for an item and the price they paid for the item.
