Producer Price Indexes

Rebasing of Selected Producer Price Indexes

Effective with the release of data for July 2023, the Bureau of Labor Statistics rebased 6 Producer Price Index (PPI) commodity-based and 9 PPI industry-based price indexes to February 2023=100. These indexes are typically found in table 9 or table 11 of the PPI Detailed Report. To be considered for rebasing, an index must have dropped below a level of 25.0 with little chance of rising to previous levels, or the index must be part of an aggregation where the structure was rebased.

Rebasing is beneficial when indexes decline to a level such that relatively sizable month-to-month price changes are not reflected in the index in a timely fashion. In general, the index base for the PPI program remains 1982=100, or for indexes introduced after that time, the date of index introduction. Only the indexes listed below are affected by this change.
