The monthly survey gives a picture of households' opinions on their economic environment and on some aspects of their personal economic circumstances. It provides information on consumer behaviour and expectations in regard to spending and saving. The survey monitors short-term phenomena such as prices, unemployment, and saving as they are perceived by households, independently of macroeconomic indicators. The summary indicator is the arithmetic mean of the following five indicators: living standards in France (past change / outlook); personal financial position (past change / outlook); timeliness of major purchases. For each question asked, s balance of opinion equal to the difference between the percentages of positive and negative responses is calculated. About 2 000 households are interviewed by telephone.

The index measures consumers' opinions by combining their answers to nine questions on the economic situation of the country, the economic situation of the family regarding employment, savings, purchase of durable goods and their financial situation. Data are first calculated as the percent balance of positive over negative answers. For the questions for which five answers are possible the extreme responses are double weighted. A simple arithmetic average of the answers is then computed. The indicator is presented as an index. The sample is selected from the population aged 18 years and over. Approximately 2000 persons are selected.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is an indicator of changes in consumer prices experienced by Canadians. It is obtained by comparing through time, the cost of a fixed basket of commodities purchased by consumers. Since the basket contains commodities of unchanging or equivalent quantity and quality, the index reflects only pure price change. The CPI is widely used as an indicator of the change in the general level of consumer prices or the rate of inflation. Price movements of the goods and services represented in the CPI are weighted according to the relative importance of commodities in the total expenditures of consumers. CPI basket shares are updated at intervals of about 4 years; they are obtained from household surveys (Survey of Household Spending and Survey of Food Expenditures). This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Consumer confidence surveys measure individual households' level of confidence in the economy's performance. The Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers are monthly surveys of consumer attitudes and expectations about the U.S. economy. They provide a gauge of consumer anticipation of changes in the economic environment. One part of the surveys - the Index of Consumer Expectations - is an official component of the U.S. Index of Leading Economic Indicators. The monthly Survey of Consumers is a nationally representative survey based on approximately 500 telephone interviews with adult men and women living in households in the co-terminous United States (48 states plus the District of Columbia). For each monthly sample, an independent cross-section sample of households is drawn. The respondents chosen in this drawing are then re-interviewed six months later. A rotating panel design results, and the total sample for any one survey is normally made up of 60 percent new respondents and 40 percent being interviewed for the second time. This is the final estimate.

Estimates of new single-family houses sold and for sale are obtained from the Survey of Construction (SOC). SOC is comprised of two parts: (1) Survey of Use of Permits (SUP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that require a building permit and (2) Non-permit Survey (NP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that do not require a building permit. A house is considered sold when either a sales contract has been signed or a deposit accepted. Included in the estimates are houses for which a sales contract is signed or deposit accepted before construction has actually started. The estimates also include houses sold while under construction or after completion. The survey does not follow through to the completion ('closing') of the sales transaction, so even if the transaction is not finalized, the house is still considered sold. A house is considered for sale when a permit to build has been issued in permit-issuing places or work has begun on the footings or foundation in nonpermit areas and a sales contract has not been signed nor a deposit accepted.
