The index of producer prices for industrial products (domestic sales) measures on a representative basis the development of the prices of products which are produced in mining and manufacturing or in the energy and water industries and are sold inside the country. These price statistics cover both the sales of industrial products to domestic buyers at different stages in the economic process and the sales between industrial enterprises. As the index of producer prices measures price changes at an early stage in the economic process, it can serve as an indicator of future inflation trends. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The index of selling prices in wholesale trade measures - on a representative basis - the development of prices of goods sold by wholesalers within Germany to the extent that such sales are included under wholesale, such as contracts concluded with resellers, processors or other bulk purchasers. The index combines the price developments for goods produced within the country and for those imported. Excluded are sales from producers direct to retailers or ultimate consumers. The reference value of the overall index is the total of all turnovers of wholesale trade in the base year, less retail sales and other sales not belonging to wholesale trade, and less export values. In this way, turnovers between wholesale businesses are also covered by price statistics. Around 1 030 reporting units (usually wholesale businesses) are asked for the selling prices of a total of 406 representatively selected kinds of goods. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.

The current account is the sum of the balance of trade (exports minus imports of goods and services), net factor income (such as interest and dividends) and net transfer payments (such as foreign aid). The current account is one of the three Balance of Payments sub-balances together with capital account and financial account. The Balance of Payments is the statistical statement that systematically summarizes, for a specific time period, the economic transactions of an economy with the rest of the world. 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).

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.

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.

Retail Sales estimates obtained from retailers are a key monthly indicator of consumer purchasing patterns in Canada. Furthermore, retail sales are an important component of the Gross Domestic Product, which measures Canada's production. Retail sales estimates do not include any form of direct selling that bypasses the retail store, e.g., direct door-to-door selling; sales made through automatic vending machines; sales of newspapers or magazines sold directly by printers or publishers; and sales made by book and record clubs. Internet retailing activities are included in the survey only when conducted through the same legal structure as the retail establishment. 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.
