  • Producer Price Index declines at a slower pace in September 2016

The Producer Price Index (PPI, 2000=100) for manufacturing reflected a decrease of 3.8 percent in September 2016, showing an improvement from the negative 7.9 percent during the same period last year. Four of the 14 major sectors significantly contributed to the decline led by furniture and fixtures, registering a double-digit decrease of 19.3 percent. Other sectors that posted double-digit decrements were also observed in the following: machinery except electrical (-16.5%), petroleum products (-11.4%) and leather products (-10.5%). On the other hand, miscellaneous manufactures (5.6%) led the six sectors that posted increases. Refer to Tables 1 and A-1.

On a monthly basis, the PPI advanced 0.9 percent in September from negative 0.5 percent a month earlier. Fifteen sectors pulled up the overall month-on-month performance of the PPI led by leather products (7.0%). On the other hand, three major sectors posted decrements while two sectors showed flat growths. Refer to Tables 1 and A-2.

Technical Notes
 
  • Introduction
The Philippine Statistics Authority generates various price indices, one of these is the Producer Price Index (PPI). The PPI, a designated statistics, is generated through the results of the Producer Price Survey (PPS) conducted nationwide. The survey gathers monthly producer prices of selected products of establishments included in the market basket.
 
The PPI is used as a deflator of the Monthly Integrated Survey of Selected Industries (MISSI) to derive indicators for the Volume of Production Index (VoPI) and Volume of Net Sales (VoNSI).
 
  • Method of Index Computation
PPI utilizes the Paasche-type method of index computation. The weights are computed from the value of production to derive concentration ratios from the Census of Philippine Business and Industry (CPBI) or Annual Survey of Philippine Business and Industry (ASPBI). The weights are updated as soon as new results of the ASPBI or CPBI are available and applied at the beginning of each survey year.
 
For the 2015 PPI, the weights of the major sectors and sub-sectors were computed from the results of the 2012 CPBI for Manufacturing Establishments with total employment of 20 and over, which is the latest census results.
 
The formulas in the computation of the PPI are as follows:
 
 

 

  • Industry Coverage

Starting with January 2013 reference month, the PPI utilizes the 2009 Philippine Standard Industrial Classification (PSIC) to classify sectors and industries. Selected industry classes of the 2009 PSIC were grouped to form the 20 industry groupings of the 2016 PPS. These are presented in the table below.

Missing  prices for products of sample establishments are estimated using the short-term geometric mean of the actual prices of responding samples within the same industry class. Revisions to the preliminary estimates are done upon receipt of actual reports from late responding establishments.
