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.

Norges Bank is Norway's central bank. Norges Bank has executive and advisory responsibilities in the area of monetary policy and is responsible for promoting robust and efficient payment systems and financial markets. The operational target of monetary policy is the annual consumer price inflation to be close to 2.5 per cent over time. Monetary policy also contributes to stabilizing output and employment. Norges Bank's most important monetary policy instrument is the key policy rate, which is the interest rate on banks deposits in Norges Bank. The key rate influences short-term money market rates. The key rate and expectations concerning future developments in the key rate are decisive for banks' deposit and lending rates and for bond yields. Norges Bank's Executive Board sets the key rate. The Executive Board is appointed by the King in Council, and is made up of the Governor, the Deputy Governor and five external members. The Executive Board functions as a unified group and the members are collectively responsible for the Bank's decisions. On the basis of the analysis and discussion, the Executive Board assesses the consequences for future interest rate developments and adopts a monetary policy strategy, including alternative strategies. The decision to adopt a monetary policy strategy is made on the same day as the report is published.

The Retail Sales Index (RSI) is derived from a monthly survey of 5,000 businesses in Great Britain and measures the change in the volume of sales by retailers in the country. The sample represents the whole retail sector and includes all large retailers and a representative panel of smaller businesses. Collectively all of these businesses cover approximately 95 per cent of the retail sector in terms of turnover. Higher retail sales volume shows stronger consumer demand, higher retail output, and economic growth. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Retail Sales Index (RSI) measures the value and volume of retail sales in Great Britain on a monthly basis. The RSI is a key economic indicator and one of the earliest short-term measures of economic activity. It is used to estimate consumer spending on retail goods and the output of the retail sector, both of which are used in the compilation of the National Accounts. Retail sales statistics published in the Retail Sales Statistical Bulletin are presented for all retailing including and excluding automotive fuel and in four retail sector groupings: predominantly food, non-food, non-store retailing, automotive fuel. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

They represent change in the total value of sales at the retail level, excluding automobiles. Automobile sales account for about 20% of Retail Sales, but they tend to be very volatile and distort the underlying trend. The data excluding autos is therefore thought to be a better scale of spending trends. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Index represents a monthly survey of manufacturers in New York State conducted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The survey is sent on the first day of each month to the same pool of about 200 manufacturing executives in New York State. 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. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

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 data is used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where readings over 50 indicate that more builders view conditions as good than poor. Based on this calculation, the HMI can range between 0 and 100.

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.

The Treasury International Capital (TIC) reporting system is the U.S. government's source of data on capital flows into and out of the United States, excluding direct investment, and the resulting levels of cross-border claims and liabilities. Information is collected from commercial banks and other depository institutions, bank holding companies, securities brokers and dealers, custodians of securities, and nonbanking enterprises in the United States, including the U.S. branches, agencies and subsidiaries of foreign-based banks and business enterprises. Data are collected by country, at market value, and are published with a forty-five-day lag. The total TIC flow includes Net foreign purchases of long-term securities; Net foreign acquisition of long-term securities; Foreign holdings of dollar-denominated short-term U.S. securities; Foreign holdings of Treasury bills; Banks' own net dollar-denominated liabilities to foreign residents. A positive difference indicates net foreign purchases from U.S. residents (U.S. capital inflow); a negative difference indicates net foreign sales to U.S. residents (U.S. capital outflow).
