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.

Thus, a positive number means that the share of optimists outweighs the share of pessimists and vice versa.

The CPI (Consumer Price Index) provides an estimate of the price change between any two periods. The CPI follows the prices of a sample of items in various categories of consumer spending - such as food, clothing, shelter, and medical services - that people buy for day-to-day living. The CPI covers the consumption sector of the U.S. economy. Consequently, it excludes investment items, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and business expenses. Life insurance also is excluded for this reason, although health, household, and vehicle insurance are in scope. Purchases of houses, antiques, and collectibles are viewed as investment expenditures and therefore excluded. In the CPI, the urban portion of the United States is divided into 38 geographic areas called index areas, and the set of all goods and services purchased by consumers is divided into 211 categories called item strata. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
