This statistic shows the monthly percentage of change in the Producer Price Index for finished goods in the United States. Finished goods are commodities that will not undergo further processing and are ready for sale to the final-demand user, either an individual consumer or business firm. The Producer Price Index (PPI) program measures the average change over time in the selling prices received by domestic producers for their output. The prices included in the PPI are from the first commercial transaction for many products and some services. In April 2013, the PPI for finished goods decreased by 0.7 percent from previous month.
