PPI Expands Commodity Code Detail

Effective with the release of July 2009 data on August 18, 2009, the Producer Price Index (PPI) program has the capability to publish commodity indexes at a greater level of detail than previously has been available. As such, the July 2009 data release includes some newly introduced commodity indexes associated with 9-digit or 10-digit commodity codes. (The maximum code length permitted for commodity indexes is now 12 digits.) These indexes are available in both the PPI Detailed Report and on the BLS website at, using the current commodity data retrieval tools.

For further information, call the Section of Index Analysis and Public Information at (202) 691-7705.
