Restoration of Discontinued Producer Price Indexes

Due to a data processing error, the following six PPIs, listed in Table 20 of the February 2016 PPI Detailed Report, were incorrectly discontinued with the release of PPI data for February 2016:

11411211
11411215
114112151

Effective with the publication of PPI data for March 2016 on April 13, 2016, these six indexes were restored to active status, including the publication of data for February 2016. In addition, the February 2016 PPI Detailed Report was reissued to reflect the fact these indexes were not discontinued.
