					Quarterly Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization: 2010
The U.S. Census Bureau reports U.S. domestic manufacturing plants used an estimated 66.2 percent (+/- 2.0 percent) of their full
production capacity for the first quarter 2010, compared with 64.1 percent (+/- 1.6 percent) for the fourth quarter 2009 and 58.5 percent
(+/- 1.8 percent) for the first quarter 2009, not adjusted for seasonal variation, holiday or trading-day differences.


In 2010, we began releasing emergency utilization rates. An explanation of how these rates are calculated appears in the Appendix.

The industry classifications for this report are based on the 2002 edition of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)
manual published by the Office of Management and Budget. The Federal Reserve Board (FRB), a funding agency, developed the
industry groups shown.



Data are obtained from a sample of manufacturing and publishing establishments by means of a mailed questionnaire or an electronic
instrument. Selected establishments are asked to report actual production and estimates of their full production and emergency
production capability. We derive utilization rates from these reported dollar values that are not adjusted for price changes.

The first quarter 2010 rates in this release are based on unit response from approximately 68% of the survey sample. The Census
Bureau also tracks and measures item response for each component used to calculate the utilization rates and the average plant hours
per week in operation. These items are reported at an approximately 64% response rate. The item response rates are available upon
request.

Note: A new sample of establishments, selected from the 2008 Business Register with updated information from the 2007 Economic
Census, was implemented in the first quarter 2010. Beginning with the second quarter 2010, estimates will be released on a 2007 NAICS
basis using results from this new sample, including revised estimates for first quarter 2010. The impact of this change will be explained
in the second quarter release.

 1/ Includes manufacturing plants without specific NAICS industry codes as specified within the table and excludes publishers (51111-51119)

  c The emergency utilization rate is based on responses with industry coverage of less than 50 percent. Coverage is calculated by
industry group as the ratio of the weighted measure of size for respondents to the weighted measure of size for the entire sample.

Survey Methodology

The sample for the 2010 first quarter release is a continuation of the 2008 sample with annual birth supplements of new plants that came into existence since the 2008
sample was drawn. The births bring the sample to its original size of approximately 7,500 and replace plants lost due to attrition. The 2008 sample consisted of
establishments selected from the 2006 Business Register. The sample frame contained approximately 217,000 manufacturing plants and 13,000 publishing plants.
Sampling probabilities for the quarterly survey were assigned proportionate to the total value of shipments. The actual sample allocation is determined by the priority
industry requirements specified by the Federal Reserve Board (FRB).

The FRB’s requirements included 95 industry groups corresponding predominantly to the 4-digit NAICS industries or combinations. Each of these 95 industry groups is
sampled independently to satisfy the total sample size constraint. The sampling procedure ensured that the allocated sample size for each industry group was exactly
realized.

The full production utilization rate for an industry is estimated based on those plants in the industry reporting both the actual value of production and the full production
estimate. Simple weighted estimates of the two variables are formed by applying the plant’s sample weight to its respective values and adding these weighted values
across the reporting plants. The utilization rate for a particular industry group is formed as the ratio of the actual production weighted sum to the full production weighted
sum for that given industry. A similar procedure is used to estimate the emergency production utilization rates, using the actual value of production and the emergency
production estimate.

The average plant hours per week in operation for an industry are estimated based on those plants in the industry reporting plant hours. Simple weighted estimates of the
plant hours are formed by applying the plant’s sample weight to its respective values and adding these weighted values across the reporting plants. The average is formed
as the ratio of the plant hours weighted sum to the sum of the weights for the reporting plants.

Reliability of the Estimates

The survey estimates presented in this report are subject to both sampling and nonsampling errors. Potential nonsampling errors include various response and operational
errors, such as errors during data collection, reporting errors, transcription errors, and bias due to nonresponse. These are all types of errors that could also occur if a
complete enumeration had been done under the same conditions as the sample survey. Most of the important operational errors were detected and corrected during the
course of reviewing data for reasonableness and consistency. Though nonsampling error is not measured directly, quality control procedures are employed throughout the
survey process to minimize this type of error.

Sampling error is the difference between estimates obtained from the sample and results theoretically obtainable from a comparable complete enumeration of the sampling
frame. This error results because only a subset of the sampling frame is measured in a sample survey. Standard errors of the estimates shown in this publication, which are
estimated measures of the sampling variability, are displayed along with the corresponding estimates in Tables 1 and 2 of this report. These standard errors may be used to
define confidence intervals about the corresponding estimates with a desired level of confidence. Only one of many possible samples was selected. If confidence intervals
were constructed for each of these possible samples, then it would be expected that the percentage of confidence intervals containing the complete coverage result would
equal the percent of the level of confidence. For example, the interval defined by one standard error below the estimate to one standard error above the estimate
approximately yields a 68-percent confidence interval, the interval defined by two standard errors approximately yields a 95-percent confidence interval, and the interval
defined by two and a half standard errors approximately yields a 99-percent confidence interval.
