Up to and including March 2005, data refers to all persons of working age who during the reference week were not employed, but were willing and able to work and had looked for work (or would have looked for work if they had not been temporarily prevented from doing so) during the last four weeks. Also included are persons waiting to begin a job starting within three months. Data from 1976 include students who comply with ILO unemployment criteria. As from October 2007, the Swedish Labour Force Survey unemployment criteria also include students looking for job. The rate is calculated as the unemployed as a percentage of total labour force. Total labour force equals the employed plus the unemployed as defined in the labour force survey.

The composite indexes are used to identify the volume of overall business activities by composing percentage changes of selected indicators. There are three types of composite indexes. The leading index, which tends to precede the coincident index by a few months. This is used to anticipate changes in the direction of the economy. The coincident index. This coincides with the business cycle. This is used to identify the current state of the economy. The lagging index. This tends to lag behind the coincident index by about six months. This is used to confirm turning points and business cycle phases. In general, increasing coincident index reflects that the economy is in an expansion phase, and decreasing coincident index reflects that the economy is in a contraction phase. The magnitude of the changes in the coincident index reflects the tempo of the expansion or contraction phases. Currently, the composite indexes use 29 series of indicators in total: 12 leading indicators, 11 coincident indicators, and six lagging indicators. The list of selected series of indicators is reviewed each time the economy goes through one complete cycle.

The Index of Manufacturing Production covers the 13 sub-sectors of manufacturing and these are aggregated to form the resulting monthly manufacturing output time series. It is widely used as a short-term economic indicator in its own right and the manufacturing industries made up 79.3 per cent of the total Industrial Production in 2003. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

A gauge of Britain's trade with countries outside of Europe. The headline figure, expressed in billions of Pounds, is the value of exports to Non European Union countries minus the value of imports from those countries. A positive value represents a trade surplus while a negative value amounts to a trade deficit. The value of Great Britain's non-EU trade is about 30% less than that of its intra-EU trade.

The Consumer Price Index is the official instrument for measuring inflation. It allows an estimation between two given periods of the average change in prices of products consumed by households. It is a summary gauge of movements in prices of products on a constant-quality basis. The CPI covers all goods and services consumed on French territory by resident households and non-resident households (for example, tourists). The only areas excluded from the CPI observation field are gambling, private hospital services, and life insurance. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is the most common measure of changes in prices. It is used as a measure of inflation and in negotiations. When using the CPI for negotiations, the index itself is usually used, and not the inflation rate. The CPI shows the development of average consumer prices for all private domestic consumption. The prices that are measured are those that the consumers actually pay and are thus affected by changes in value-added taxes and subsidies. Direct taxes and social benefits are not considered when the index is calculated. Since it is difficult in practice to measure prices for all goods and services that are consumed, prices are collected for a representative basket of goods and services, called representative products. The relative importance of different representative products is given using weights. These weights show how large of a share, in terms of value, the different chosen products have of the total private domestic consumption. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Industrial Production Index is a business cycle indicator showing the output and activity of industry. It measures changes in the volume of output at close and regular intervals. The most accurate production information on products is generally obtained from specialized surveys on output. In the EU Member States the Prodcom survey is carried out annually. The Prodcom list describes between 5 000 and 6 000 products. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Bureau of Labour Statistics also calculates and publishes indexes for special aggregations, such as energy items, that cut across the above classification scheme. The series All items less food and energy sometimes is said to measure the core rate of inflation. Food and energy are two of the most volatile components of the CPI (Consumer Price Index). For this reason, many analysts regard the measure of core inflation as more useful for their purposes. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The CPI (Consumer Price Index) provides an estimate of the price change between any two periods. The CPI follows the prices of a sample of items in various categories of consumer spending - such as food, clothing, shelter, and medical services - that people buy for day-to-day living. The CPI covers the consumption sector of the U.S. economy. Consequently, it excludes investment items, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and business expenses. Life insurance also is excluded for this reason, although health, household, and vehicle insurance are in scope. Purchases of houses, antiques, and collectibles are viewed as investment expenditures and therefore excluded. In the CPI, the urban portion of the United States is divided into 38 geographic areas called index areas, and the set of all goods and services purchased by consumers is divided into 211 categories called item strata. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Loans comprise funds provided by financial institutions to borrowers for business operations and other purposes from domestic banks and Shinkin bank. Since the objective of the statistics is to collect information on loans that contribute to the economic activity of the private non-financial sector, loans extended to financial institutions and the central government are excluded. The indicator represents percentage change compared with the corresponding period of the previous year.
