The producer price index for inputs to construction industries - a
weighted average of the price of all goods used in every type of construction,
plus items consumed by contractors, such as diesel fuel - was flat for September
but up 8.1 percent over the September 2010 level.
The pickup for total construction in August was
the result of greater activity for each of construction’s three main sectors - nonresidential
building [7 percent], residential building [4 percent] and nonbuilding
construction [13 percent]. For the first eight months of 2011, total
construction on an unadjusted basis was down 6 percent from the same period a
PPI for inputs to construction industries - a blend of all materials used in
every type of construction, plus items consumed by contractors such as diesel
fuel - rose 1.4 percent and 7.1 percent, respectively.
