Estimation of capacity utilization for selected U.S. manufacturing industries

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper reports results from the nonparametric estimation of plant-level capacity and capacity utilization for selected four-digit Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) industries for the years 1972-90. The estimates are constructed using establishment-level data from the Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM) drawn from the Census Bureau`s Longitudinal Research Database (LRD). This work represents the first broad-scale application of the nonparametric measurement of capacity and capacity utilization to manufacturing plants. Given that the measures are largely untried, we attempt to assess the quality of the reported nonparametric measures.
