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 preliminary 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 preliminary percentage change, compared with 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.

The Consumer Price Index is the official instrument for measuring inflation. It allows an estimation between two given periods of the average change in prices of products consumed by households. It is a summary gauge of movements in prices of products on a constant-quality basis. The CPI covers all goods and services consumed on French territory by resident households and non-resident households (for example, tourists). The only areas excluded from the CPI observation field are gambling, private hospital services, and life insurance. 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.

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.

Import Price Index measures the change over time in the prices of goods or services purchased from abroad by U.S. residents. Import prices are based on U.S. dollar prices paid by the U.S. importer. The prices are generally either 'free on board' (f.o.b.) foreign port or 'cost, insurance, and freight' (c.i.f.) U.S. port transaction prices, depending on the practices of the individual industry. The index for crude petroleum is calculated from data collected by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Indexes are also a valuable input into the processes of measuring inflation, formulating fiscal and monetary policy, forecasting future prices, conducting elasticity studies, measuring U.S. industrial competitiveness and analysing exchange rates. All goods are included except for military goods, works of art, used items, charity donations, rail road equipment, items leased for less than a year and rebuilt and repaired items. Covered services are air freight and air passenger fares. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The New Housing Price Index (NHPI) is a monthly series that measures changes over time in the contractors' selling prices of new residential houses, where detailed specifications pertaining to each house remain the same between two consecutive periods. The survey also collects contractors' estimates of the current value (evaluated at market price) of the land. These estimates are independently indexed to provide the published series for land. The residual, (total selling price less land value), which mainly relates to the current cost of the structure is also independently indexed and is presented as the estimated house series.

Estimates of new single-family houses sold and for sale are obtained from the Survey of Construction (SOC). SOC is comprised of two parts: (1) Survey of Use of Permits (SUP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that require a building permit and (2) Non-permit Survey (NP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that do not require a building permit. A house is considered sold when either a sales contract has been signed or a deposit accepted. Included in the estimates are houses for which a sales contract is signed or deposit accepted before construction has actually started. The estimates also include houses sold while under construction or after completion. The survey does not follow through to the completion ('closing') of the sales transaction, so even if the transaction is not finalized, the house is still considered sold. A house is considered for sale when a permit to build has been issued in permit-issuing places or work has begun on the footings or foundation in nonpermit areas and a sales contract has not been signed nor a deposit accepted.

It measures the level of a diffusion index based on surveyed manufacturers. broken down into 5 sub-indexes: production, employment, new orders, finished stock, and deliveries. The index uses 50 as a centreline between economic expansion/contraction expectations; the further the value from 50 the stronger the expected expansion or contraction. Increased activity in the manufacturing sector is usually a precursor to economic expansion and inflationary pressures.
