The Swedish National Labour Market Board - AMS (Arbetsmarknadsverket) is the central administrative body for general labour market matters and the authority responsible for the County Labour Boards (Lan). AMS directs, co-ordinates and develops labour market policy activities in Sweden. An unemployed person is defined as someone without employment who has registered as seeking work with the AMS and is both willing and able to work. Data refer to insured unemployed people registered at the employment services, who are receiving unemployment benefit. The AMS statistics do not include the number of people on sick pensions and long-term sick leave. Nor do they include people who are studying but who would prefer to be in work.

The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) is conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the US Department of Labor. The program involves the monthly collection, processing, and dissemination of job openings and labor turnover data. The number of unfilled jobs, used to calculate the job openings rate, is an important measure of the unmet demand for labor. The statistics facilitates presenting more complete data about the US labor market than by looking solely at the unemployment rate, a measure of the excess supply of labor.

The Reserve Bank uses monetary policy to maintain price stability as defined in the Policy Targets Agreement (PTA). The current PTA requires the Bank to keep inflation between 1 and 3 percent on average over the medium term. The Bank implements monetary policy by setting the Official Cash Rate (OCR), which is reviewed eight times a year. The OCR influences the price of borrowing money in New Zealand and provides the Reserve Bank with a means of influencing the level of economic activity and inflation. An OCR is a fairly conventional tool by international standards. In New Zealand, the Governor is personally responsible for all the monetary policy decisions taken by the Bank. By contrast, in Australia the Bank's Board itself is responsible for making interest rate decisions.
