GDP, gross domestic product at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. It can be defined in three ways: as the sum of gross value added of the various institutional sectors or the various industries plus taxes and less subsidies on products; as the sum of final uses of goods and services by resident institutional units (final consumption, gross capital formation, exports minus imports); as the sum of uses in the total economy generation of income account (compensation of employees, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, gross operating surplus and gross mixed income). This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

The External trade balance indicator is the difference between exports and imports of goods. Exports of goods record flows from an European Area/European Union (EA/EU) Member State to a non-EA/EU country while imports record inwards flows. Exports are expressed in value terms and measured 'free on board (FOB)', while imports are expressed in value terms and measured 'cost, insurance, freight' (CIF ). 'Goods' means all movable property including electric current. Data are expressed in billion Euro.

For short term indicators, the cycles that are relevant for the economic trends and which by definition have periodicities longer than one year, are generally affected by considerable short-term fluctuations (trend, economic fluctuations, seasonal fluctuations, calendar fluctuations, residual or irregular fluctuations). As a consequence, analysing the current business-cycle phase is quite difficult. To improve the accuracy of the economic trend analyses, it is common to apply mathematical filtering techniques to remove such fluctuations from the time series. So the value becomes Seasonally Adjusted (SA).

Sales include merchandise sold (for cash or credit at retail or wholesale) by establishments primarily engaged in retail trade. Services that are incidental to the sale of merchandise, and excise taxes that are paid by the manufacturer or wholesaler and passed along to the retailer are also included. Sales are net, after deductions, for refunds and allowances for merchandise returned by customers. Sales exclude sales taxes collected directly from customers and paid directly to a local, state, or federal tax agency. The estimates of sales measure the operations receipts rendered by stores that primarily sell at retail. The sales estimates represent total sales and receipts of all establishments primarily engaged in retail trade. They do not include sales at retail by manufacturers, wholesalers, service establishments, and others whose primary activity is other than retail trade. Because the retail establishment is the basic unit of measure, the published estimates of sales by type of retail store are not intended to measure the total sales for a given commodity or merchandise line. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

They represent change in the total value of sales at the retail level, excluding automobiles. Automobile sales account for about 20% of Retail Sales, but they tend to be very volatile and distort the underlying trend. The data excluding autos is therefore thought to be a better scale of spending trends. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The industrial production (IP) index measures the real output of the manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities industries. Manufacturing consists of those industries included in the North American Industry Classification System, or NAICS, definition of manufacturing plus those industries that have traditionally been considered to be manufacturing and included in the industrial sector. The total IP index has been constructed from 303 individual series based on the 2002 North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Federal Reserve Board constructs estimates of capacity and capacity utilization for industries in manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities. For a given industry, the capacity utilization rate is equal to an output index (seasonally adjusted) divided by a capacity index. The Federal Reserve Board's capacity indexes attempt to capture the concept of sustainable maximum output - the greatest level of output a plant can maintain within the framework of a realistic work schedule, after factoring in normal downtime and assuming sufficient availability of inputs to operate the capital in place.

Index represents the change in the total value of goods held in inventory by manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers. The Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) survey provides broad-based, monthly statistical data on economic conditions in the domestic manufacturing sector. The survey measures current industrial activity and provides an indication of future business trends. There are 89 separately tabulated industry categories in the M3 survey. 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.

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. The preliminary figure incorporates approximately 60% of responses that are included in the final figure, and is revised at the end of the month.
