The Bureau of Labor Statistics has transitioned from a State of Processing (SOP) to a Final Demand-Intermediate Demand (FD-ID) system for determining producer prices effective with the January 2014 Producer Price Index release. Unlike the SOP system, where indexes were composed only of goods prices, the FD-ID system includes services and construction prices.

Under the new system, the PPI finished goods category is equivalent to the PPI finished goods category under the prior methodology. Intermediate demand, processed goods is equivalent to intermediate materials under the old methodology, while Intermediate demand, unprocessed goods is equivalent to crude materials under the old system.
