The CPI reflects developments in the prices of goods and services which consumers buy. Inflation is measured as the percentage of increase of the CPI in a certain period compared with the corresponding period in the previous year. The CPI reflects increases and decreases of the prices of goods and services which an average household in the Netherlands bought in the base year for the purposes of consumption. This package of goods and services is also known as the basket or shopping basket. The basket contains day to day shopping items, spending on durable consumer goods such as washing machines and cars, rent, school and tuition fees and consumption-related taxes such as property tax and motor vehicle tax. Not all expenditure is included in the calculation of the CPI: income tax, social premiums and spending on insured health care, for example, are nor taken into account.

The total of orders received comprises the value (excluding turnover tax) of all orders definitely accepted by the local units in manufacturing with 50 employees and over in the respective reference month. These orders refer to products from own production or from contract processing by other firms. The monthly indices of orders received in manufacturing rank among the most important early indicators for monitoring and analysing the short-term economic development in Germany. This is the percentage change, compared with the previous month.

The ADP National Employment Report is a measure of non-farm private employment, based on a subset of aggregated and anonymous payroll data that represents approximately 400 000 of ADP's 500 000 U.S. business clients and roughly 24 million employees working in all 19 of the major North American Industrial Classification (NAICS) private industrial sectors. Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP) is a premier provider of payroll-related services. The report is constructed from ADP's data on payrolls following a procedure similar to that used by the Bureau of Labour Statistics (BLS) to process its monthly survey of Current Employment Statistics into the 'official' estimates of establishment employment. The ADP National Employment Report is released two days prior to the Employment Situation by the BLS. The ADP National Employment Report first launched on May 2006.

These productivity measures describe the relationship between real output and the labour time involved in its production. They show the changes from period to period in the amount of goods and services produced per hour. Although these measures relate output to hours at work of all persons engaged in a sector, they do not measure the specific contribution of labour, capital, or any other factor of production. Rather, they reflect the joint effects of many influences, including changes in technology; capital investment; level of output; utilization of capacity, energy, and materials; the organization of production; managerial skill; and the characteristics and effort of the work force. This is the final percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

Initial Jobless Claims is a report issued by the U.S. Department of Labour on a weekly basis. 'Initial Claim' means any notice of unemployment filed to request a determination of entitlement to and eligibility for compensation or a second or subsequent period of unemployment with a benefit year or period of eligibility. This report tracks how many claims have been registered for the previous week. It is a good gauge of the U.S. job market.

The measures of unit labour costs in this release describe the relationship between compensation per hour and productivity, or real output per hour, and can be used as an indicator of inflationary pressure on producers. Increases in hourly compensation increase unit labour costs; labour productivity increases offset compensation increases and lower unit labour costs. This is the final percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

It measures the change in the stock of material resources of the country resulting from the movement of merchandise into or out of Canada. Merchandise trade is one component of the current account of Canada's balance of payments, which also includes trade in services, investment income and transfers. Merchandise trade statistics are reported and presented on two different bases: Customs basis and Balance of Payment basis. The principal difference between the two trade concepts is that Customs based merchandise trade statistics cover the physical movement of goods as they are reflected on customs documents, while Balance of Payments adjusted data are intended to cover all economic transactions between residents and non-residents which involve merchandise trade. The statistics on imports and exports of goods (merchandise trade) are regarded as among the most important economic statistics.

Record of the difference between exports of goods and services and imports of goods and services. In the broad sense, this balance is conceptually equal to net exports of goods and services, which is a component of gross domestic product (GDP). Exports are compiled from Shippers' Export Declarations. Imports are compiled from the US Custom Services' Automated Commercial System (ACS). Data refer to general trade and exclude transactions with the US military stationed abroad. Exports include exports of US merchandise plus re-exports of foreign merchandise and exclude in-transit shipments and low value non-commercial shipments. Exports are valued on a f.a.s. basis (free along side). Imports include both entries for immediate consumption and entries into bonded warehouses. Reimports are included and attributed to the country of exportation. Imports are valued on a c.i.f. basis (cost, insurance, freight). Imports are reported in US dollars with an exchange rate given by the US Custom Service. The geographic area covered is the United States Customs area (includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico), the US Virgin Islands and US Foreign Trade Zones.

The Ivey PMI (Purchasing Manager's Index), sponsored by the Richard Ivey School of Business and the Purchasing Management Association of Canada, shows month to month variation in economic activity. The Ivey Purchasing Manager's Index measures changes in dollars of purchases as indicated by a panel of purchasing managers from across Canada. The 175 participants in this survey have been carefully selected geographically and by sector of activity to match the Canadian economy as a whole. The index includes both the public and private sectors. Index panel members indicate whether their organizations activity is higher than the same as, or lower than the previous month across the following five categories: purchases, employment, inventories, supplier deliveries and prices. The Ivey PMI shows responses to one question: "Were your purchases last month in dollars higher, the same, or lower than the previous month?" A figure above 50 shows an increase while below 50 shows a decrease.

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. New orders, as reported in the monthly survey, are net of order cancellations and include orders received and filled during the month as well as orders received for future delivery. They also include the value of contract changes which increase or decrease the value of the unfilled orders to which they relate. Orders are defined to include those supported by binding legal documents such as signed contracts, letters of award, or letters of intent, although in some industries this definition may not be strictly applicable. In the case of letters of intent, the full amount of the sales value is included if the parties are in substantial agreement on the amount; otherwise, only the funds specifically authorized to be expended are included.

The distance from 50 is indicative of the strength of the expansion or decline.

The survey unit is the household except one-person household of student in the entire area of Japan. The sample households are selected based on the three-stage stratified sampling method.

The average amount of pre-tax earnings per regular employee, including overtime pay and bonuses. Though the report doesn't take into account all sources of household income (accumulated wealth and capital gains from financial assets are omitted), Labor Cash Earnings accurately reflects the spending ability of domestic consumers, one of the driving forces behind economic growth. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.
