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 final 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 (CPI) is the most common measure of changes in prices. It is used as a measure of inflation and in negotiations. When using the CPI for negotiations, the index itself is usually used, and not the inflation rate. The CPI shows the development of average consumer prices for all private domestic consumption. The prices that are measured are those that the consumers actually pay and are thus affected by changes in value-added taxes and subsidies. Direct taxes and social benefits are not considered when the index is calculated. Since it is difficult in practice to measure prices for all goods and services that are consumed, prices are collected for a representative basket of goods and services, called representative products. The relative importance of different representative products is given using weights. These weights show how large of a share, in terms of value, the different chosen products have of the total private domestic consumption. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

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).

Example: If 30 per cent of participants expect the German economic situation to improve within the next six months, 30 per cent expect no change and 40 per cent expect the economic situation to deteriorate, the ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment would take a value of -10. Thus, a positive number means that the share of optimists outweighs the share of pessimists and vice versa.

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.

Money Supply M2 is a Money stock index. The Money stock indices are basically defined as the quantity of money held by money holders (corporations, individuals, and local governments including municipal enterprises). Corporations exclude depository institutions, insurance companies, government financial institutions, securities companies, Tanshi companies, etc. Deposits, etc. held by financial institutions and the central government are not included. М2 = cash currency in circulation + deposits. The money issuers are: Bank of Japan, domestically licensed banks (excluding Japan Post Bank), foreign banks in Japan, Shinkin Central Bank, shinkin banks, Norinchukin Bank, and Shoko Chukin Bank. As regards M2 and M3, the differences between the two series mainly derive from the differences in the range of money holders and the estimation method of some data. Apart from that, M2 and 'M2+CDs (former series)' have the same range of money issuers and financial assets (except for nonresident yen deposits). Similarly, M3 and 'M3+CDs - money trusts (former series)' have the same range of money issuers and financial assets (except for nonresident yen deposits).
