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 corresponding period in the previous year.

GDP, gross domestic product at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. It can be defined in three ways: as the sum of gross value added of the various institutional sectors or the various industries plus taxes and less subsidies on products; as the sum of final uses of goods and services by resident institutional units (final consumption, gross capital formation, exports minus imports); as the sum of uses in the total economy generation of income account (compensation of employees, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, gross operating surplus and gross mixed income). This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

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.

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 second estimate of the GDP for the period and is calculated as a percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is an indicator of changes in consumer prices experienced by Canadians. It is obtained by comparing through time, the cost of a fixed basket of commodities purchased by consumers. Since the basket contains commodities of unchanging or equivalent quantity and quality, the index reflects only pure price change. The CPI is widely used as an indicator of the change in the general level of consumer prices or the rate of inflation. Price movements of the goods and services represented in the CPI are weighted according to the relative importance of commodities in the total expenditures of consumers. CPI basket shares are updated at intervals of about 4 years; they are obtained from household surveys (Survey of Household Spending and Survey of Food Expenditures). This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Index represents a monthly survey of manufacturers in New York State conducted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Participants respond to a questionnaire and report the change in a variety of indicators from the previous month. Respondents also state the likely direction of these same indicators six months ahead. April 2002 is the first report. Results are calculated as the difference between percentage of positive and negative scores. Zero acts as the breakpoint.

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.

The Federal Reserve Board constructs estimates of capacity and capacity utilization for industries in manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities. For a given industry, the capacity utilization rate is equal to an output index (seasonally adjusted) divided by a capacity index. The Federal Reserve Board's capacity indexes attempt to capture the concept of sustainable maximum output - the greatest level of output a plant can maintain within the framework of a realistic work schedule, after factoring in normal downtime and assuming sufficient availability of inputs to operate the capital in place.

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.

The Employment Change indicator is a measurement of new jobs created within the Australian economy throughout the previous month. Consumer spending is closely linked to the creation of new jobs, as those who are employed tend to spend more (and put more back into the economy) than those who are unemployed. Employment levels and the creation of new jobs will largely impact the strength of an economy, thus a rising trend seen in this indicator should positively impact a nation's currency.
