The rate uses benchmark unemployment data compiled from the results of the annual household Employment Survey, updated using the changes in the monthly registered unemployment figures. From the first quarter of 2008 onwards, the wording of the question on the wish to work longer hours used for the calculation of under-employment, and the definition of under-employment have been amended to be closer to the ILO-concept. The Unemployment rate refers to the number of persons unemployed, according to ILO definitions, as a percentage of the total labour force.

The gross domestic product (GDP) is a measure of the economic performance of a national economy over a given period. It indicates the value of the goods and services produced in the economic territory (value added) unless they are used as intermediate consumption for the production of other goods and services. In Germany, the gross domestic product is calculated applying the production and expenditure approaches. The production approach means that the gross domestic product is obtained by calculating the value added of all producers as the difference between the value of goods and services produced (output) and intermediate consumption, adding the taxes on products (such as tobacco, mineral oil and value added tax), and subtracting the subsidies on products. The gross domestic product may also be obtained through the demand side. What is calculated when applying the expenditure approach is the expenditure for the final use of goods and services, i.e. final consumption expenditure of households and government final consumption expenditure, capital formation and the balance of exports and imports (exports minus imports). The early first release of gross domestic product data meets the user need for up-to-date results although frequently the data basis is not yet complete at that point in time. This is the flash percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

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 producer price index relates to goods produced and sold on the domestic market or exported by enterprises based in Switzerland. Goods include primary products (raw materials), semi-finished goods and finished goods. The prices are output prices measured at the first stage of marketing of the product, on an f.o.b. factory or farm basis and are net of discounts and V.A.T. but include indirect taxes. The import price index has a methodologically similar structure as the producer price index and measures the price of imported products (ex-customs prices, excluding VAT). The figure represents changes in the combined producer and import price index (the price index of total supply) calculated as a summation of the producer price index and import price index. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Up to and including March 2005, data refers to all persons of working age who during the reference week were not employed, but were willing and able to work and had looked for work (or would have looked for work if they had not been temporarily prevented from doing so) during the last four weeks. Also included are persons waiting to begin a job starting within three months. Data from 1976 include students who comply with ILO unemployment criteria. As from October 2007, the Swedish Labour Force Survey unemployment criteria also include students looking for job. The rate is calculated as the unemployed as a percentage of total labour force. Total labour force equals the employed plus the unemployed as defined in the labour force survey.

The gross domestic product (GDP) is the main indicator for the development of the economy. Economic growth is measured in terms of the volume change in GDP. This is the sum of value added generated in the Netherlands. Value added equals value of production minus value of consumption. Here it is thus the value that is added to the goods and services used in the production process. Consumption does not include services of labour and capital. Value added can be valued at basic prices and at market prices. Value added excluding indirect taxes and subsidies (with the exception of non-product related taxes and subsidies) is called value added at basic prices. If the indirect taxes and subsidies are included, the term value added at market prices is used. The term “gross” also indicates that depreciation is included in value added, and thus also in GDP. Provides the first estimate of growth in GDP.

This indicator represents the difference (in EUR) in value between imported and exported goods and services during the reported month; This is the largest component of a country's balance of payments. When a country's exports are greater than their imports, a Trade Surplus exists. Similarly, when imports are greater than exports, a Trade Deficit exists. Countries with a severe imbalance are not self-sufficient, either because they rely heavily on foreign markets to purchase their goods (in the case of a Surplus) or because they don't produce enough goods internally to meet demand (in the case of a Deficit).

Gross domestic product (GDP) is a measure for the economic activity. It is defined as the value of all goods and services produced less the value of any goods or services used in their creation. The volume index of GDP is expressed in relation to the European Union (EU-27) average set to equal 100. If the index of a country is higher than 100, this country's level of GDP per head is higher than the EU average and vice versa. GDP at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. From the expenditure side, GDP can be measured as follows: GDP = private final consumption expenditure + government final consumption expenditure + gross fixed capital formation + changes in inventories+ acquisition less disposal of valuables + exports - imports. This is the flash percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

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.

Because prices for food and energy have tended to be so erratic in recent years, some economists prefer to focus attention on an index measuring prices for finished goods other than foods and energy as a better measure of the so-called core or underlying rate of inflation. The Index for Crude Materials Other than Foods and Energy is quite sensitive to shifts in total demand and can be a leading indicator of the state of the economy; its limited scope, however, makes it less reliable as an indicator of future inflation in general.

The Producer Price Index (PPI) of the Bureau of Labour Statistics (BLS) is a family of indexes that measure the average change over time in the prices received by domestic producers of goods and services. PPIs measure price change from the perspective of the seller. This contrasts with other measures, such as the Consumer Price Index (CPI). CPIs measure price change from the purchaser's perspective. Sellers' and purchasers' prices can differ due to government subsidies, sales and excise taxes, and distribution costs. More than 8 000 PPIs for individual products and groups of products are released each month. PPIs are based on selling prices reported by establishments of all sizes selected by probability sampling, with the probability of selection proportionate to size. Price data are provided on a voluntary and confidential basis. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

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.
