The perpetual inventory method accumulates the flow of past investment in order to generate the series of capital stock.
An alternative perpetual inventory method (APIM) is presented in the paper to estimate consumption of fixed capital.
In some cases, BEA also uses four methods to estimate values: the commodity-flow method, the retail-control method, the perpetual inventory method, and the fiscal year analysis method.
In the perpetual inventory method a new average is calculated after each purchase.
Another area of concern is the persistent use of the perpetual inventory method to exemplify introducing LIFO/FIFO/weighted average, which is unnecessarily complex.
In Section II the perpetual inventory method to measure the stock of capital is described.
There are two broad approaches to estimation of the capital stock: direct estimation and the perpetual inventory method (PIM).
Bureau of the Census of utilization rates in manufacturing establishments for the fourth quarter of years through 1990, (2) output and capacity data in physical units from various sources through 1992, and (3) estimates of capital stock derived through the perpetual inventory method from investment spending by industry.
The BLS uses the perpetual inventory method to construct net capital stock measures, that is, measures of capital stock net of the decay in the productive efficiency of existing capital assets.
In the R&D satellite account, the stock of R&D capital is constructed using the same methodology that is currently used to construct BEA's estimates of fixed reproducible tangible capital: The perpetual inventory method is used with uniform average service lives, straight-line depreciation, and a bell-shaped distribution within each vintage of capital to determine discards.
The capital stock estimates were derived by the perpetual inventory method from investment data found in the Annual Survey of Manufacturers and adjusted at the two-digit level to BEA capital stock figures.
Given the efficiency functions for existing assets and the discard rates for assets by age, it is possible to employ the perpetual inventory method to obtain annual, or more frequent, time series estimates of capital stocks.
