CES is pleased to announce that the 2014 Quarterly Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization (QPC) data are available on August 17th, 2017 to approved projects that are authorized to use them in the Research Data Centers.
The purpose of the Quarterly Survey of Plant Capacity Utilization (QPC) is to provide quarterly statistics on the rates of capacity utilization for the U.S. manufacturing and publishing sectors. The QPC survey collects statistics on establishment operational status, value of actual production, estimated production attainable at full and emergency conditions, and reasons for operating at less than full production capacity. The survey also collects data on work patterns by shift. These data include days per week in operation, plant hours per week in operation, weeks in operation in the quarter, and number of production workers
