The spending is shown on the basis of data from the budget survey. Spending on goods and services is categorized by function, i.e. goods and services that fulfil a particular need are grouped together. The various types of households are based on spending-related characteristics: level and source of income, household size and composition, age of main earner, home ownership. The budget survey also provides data on the distribution of purchases by distribution channel, also called 'shop types'.

The Average Earnings Index (AEI) is Great Britain's key indicator of how fast earnings are growing. The index measures how earnings in the latest month compare with those for the last base year when the index took the value of 100. The current base year is 2000. Average earnings are obtained by dividing the total amount paid by the total number of employees paid, including those employees on strike and temporarily absent.

Unemployment is a count of jobless people who want to work, are available to work, and are actively seeking employment. The ILO (International Labour Organization) definition is used internationally, so comparisons between countries can be made, and it also allows for consistent comparisons over time. Unemployment is calculated using data from the Labour Force Survey, so it is subject to sampling differences.

This survey presents estimates of monthly sales levels for wholesale merchants in Canada, each province and territory. This survey provides information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector and is an important indicator of the health of the Canadian economy. Wholesale sales in real terms are calculated by deflating current dollar values using import and industry product price indexes. As many of the goods sold by wholesalers are imported, fluctuations in the value of the Canadian dollar can have an important influence on the prices of goods bought and sold by wholesalers. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.

The Monthly Survey of Manufacturing (MSM) publishes statistical series for manufacturers - sales of goods manufactured, inventories, unfilled orders and new orders. The target population for the MSM consists of all statistical establishments on the business register that are classified to the manufacturing sector. It includes durable and non-durable goods industries and also production based ones. Approximately 10 500 units are sampled from the 27 000 establishments in the sampling frame. Sales of goods manufactured (formerly shipments of goods manufactured) are defined as the value of goods manufactured by establishments that have been shipped to a customer. Sales of goods manufactured exclude any wholesaling activity, and any revenues from the rental of equipment or the sale of electricity. For the aerospace product and parts, and shipbuilding industries, the value of production is used instead of sales of goods manufactured.

These categories are groupings of the 473 manufacturing industries. Inventories in the M3 survey are collected on a current cost or pre-LIFO (last in, first out) basis. Inventory data are requested from respondents by stage of fabrication; that is, finished goods, work in process, and raw materials and supplies.
