The consumer price index for Germany measures the average price change for all goods and services purchased by households for consumption purposes. The consumer price index provides an overall picture of price rises in Germany. The index covers all types of households, all regions in Germany and all goods and services which are in demand in those places - rents, food, clothing and also motor vehicles and services such as hairdresser, dry cleaning or repairs. Calculating the consumer price index is based on a basket of goods and services which includes all goods and services that are relevant components of consumption in Germany. The basket is continuously updated in order to include the goods which are frequently bought by consumers in the current price observation. This is the final percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices is used to measure inflation in the context of international, mostly inner-European comparisons. Its calculation, which relies on Harmonised concepts, methods and procedures, reflects the development of prices in the individual states based on national consumption patterns. In particular, the prices collected for the German consumer price index are also used to calculate the German Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices. The difference in coverage between the German price index for Germany and the German Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices consists mainly in the additional inclusion of owner-occupied residential property and motor vehicle tax in the German price index for Germany. This is the final percentage change, compared with the previous month.

The extent to which a company uses its facilities at capacity, expressed as a percentage. That is, the capacity utilization rate states how much a company produces as a percentage of what it can produce. For example, if a factory produces 1 000 widgets per day but could produce 1 200 for the same cost, it has a capacity utilization rate of 83.3% (actual output/potential output)x100 [%].

It describes a basket of goods and services bought on the market for households final use. The price referred to in the consumer price index for the whole nation is the comprehensive selling price whether entirely paid by the consumer or not. Each month some 300 000 quotations are collected in 25 000 stores and 12 000 houses. Owner-occupied housing is excluded. This is the final percentage change compared with the previous month.

Statistics on housing units authorized by building permits include housing units issued in local permit-issuing jurisdictions by a building or zoning permit. Not all areas of the country require a building or zoning permit. The statistics only represent those areas that do require a permit. Current surveys indicate that construction is undertaken for all but a very small percentage of housing units authorized by building permits. A major portion typically get under way during the month of permit issuance and most of the remainder begin within the three following months. Because of this lag, the housing unit authorization statistics do not represent the number of units actually put into construction for the period shown, and should therefore not be directly interpreted as "housing starts".

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.

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.

The quarterly Producers Price Index (PPI) measures changes in the levels of prices for the production sector of the economy. It comprises outputs indexes (which measure changes in prices received by producers) and inputs indexes (which measure changes in cost of production). The input indexes measure price changes in costs of production excluding labour and depreciation costs. The input indexes cover the prices of materials, fuels and electricity, transport and communication, commission and contract services, rent and lease of land, buildings, vehicles and plant, business services, insurance premiums less claims. Excluded from the indexes are wages and salaries (measured in the Labour Cost Index), capital expenditure (measured in the Capital Goods Price Index), land tax, government licence fees, road user charges, rates royalties, patent fees, bad debts and donations. The inputs index does not fully measure changes in production costs. This is because production costs are not solely dependent on price movements but are also dependent on factors that affect productivity, such as technological advances, management efficiency and climate fluctuations (factors influencing volume). Periodic re-basing of the index attempts to overcome these limitations in the PPI.

The quarterly Producers Price Index (PPI) measures changes in the levels of prices for the production sector of the economy. It comprises outputs indexes (which measure changes in prices received by producers) and inputs indexes (which measure changes in cost of production). The output indexes cover the prices of primary products, manufactured goods, revenue from renting and leasing, the provision of services, capital work undertaken by own employees margins on goods purchased for resale. Excluded from the output indexes are interest and dividends, royalties and patent fees, receipts from insurance claims, government cash grants and subsidies. These indexes are designed to measure price changes at a level corresponding to the price at the "factory door", before the addition of commodity taxes or deduction of subsidies (i.e. the price received by the producer). The outputs index measures the price movements of a fixed basket of goods. Therefore changes in production may not necessarily be represented in the index. Periodic re-basing of the index attempts to overcome these limitations in the PPI.

The Employment Change indicator is a measurement of new jobs created within the Australian economy throughout the previous month. Consumer spending is closely linked to the creation of new jobs, as those who are employed tend to spend more (and put more back into the economy) than those who are unemployed. Employment levels and the creation of new jobs will largely impact the strength of an economy, thus a rising trend seen in this indicator should positively impact a nation's currency.

The unemployed labour force is a key indicator of the size of unemployment. The unemployed labour force consists of people aged 15-64 years not working or working for less than twelve hours a week, who are actively looking for paid work for at least twelve hours a week, and who are directly available to start work. As of February 2003 Statistics Netherlands publishes three-month averages of the unemployed labour force based on the Labour Force Survey and the Labour accounts. Apart from the unemployed labour force Statistics Netherlands also calculates data on registered unemployment. The registered unemployed are people aged 16-64 years who do not work or work for less than twelve hours a week, who are registered at a job centre.
