Nationwide House Prices measure a change in value caused by inflation using a statistical method to construct an 'average house'. Using the vast majority of Nationwide's sample of mortgage data, the index calculates the price of the 'average house' from a set of features. The 'average house' represents the average price of a group of '100 properties', each with a set of 10 representative features (property type, whether it is new, region, neighbourhood characteristics at local and parliamentary constituency level, internal floor size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, type of garage, and central heating status).

The Retail Prices Index (RPI) is the most familiar general purpose domestic measure of inflation in the United Kingdom. It is commonly used in private contracts for uprating of maintenance payments and housing rents. It measures the average change from month to month in the prices of goods and services purchased by most households in the United Kingdom. The spending pattern on which the index is based is revised each year, mainly using information from the Expenditure and Food Survey. The index is compiled using a large and representative selection of around 650 separate goods and services for which price movements are regularly measured in around 150 147 areas throughout the United Kingdom. Around 120 000 separate price quotations are used each month in compiling the index, which is published each month.

The Construction Production Index is a business cycle indicator showing the output and activity of construction. It measures changes in the volume of output at close and regular intervals. It provides a measure of the volume trend in value added at basic prices over a given reference period. Value added at basic prices can be calculated from turnover (excluding VAT and other similar deductible taxes directly linked to turnover), plus capitalized production, plus other operating income plus or minus the changes in stocks, minus the purchases of goods and services, minus taxes on products which are linked to turnover but not deductible plus any subsidies on products received. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Statistics on housing units authorized by building permits include housing units issued in local permit-issuing jurisdictions by a building or zoning permit. Not all areas of the country require a building or zoning permit. The statistics only represent those areas that do require a permit. Current surveys indicate that construction is undertaken for all but a very small percentage of housing units authorized by building permits. A major portion typically get under way during the month of permit issuance and most of the remainder begin within the three following months. Because of this lag, the housing unit authorization statistics do not represent the number of units actually put into construction for the period shown, and should therefore not be directly interpreted as "housing starts".

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 previous month.

The term 'monetary policy' refers to the actions undertaken by a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve, to influence the availability and cost of money and credit to help promote national economic goals. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 gave the Federal Reserve responsibility for setting monetary policy. The Federal Reserve controls the three tools of monetary policy - open market operations, the discount rate, and reserve requirements. The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is responsible for the discount rate (the interest rate charged to commercial banks and other depository institutions on loans they receive from their regional Federal Reserve Bank's lending facility) and reserve requirements (the amount of funds that a depository institution must hold in reserve against specified deposit liabilities), and the Federal Open Market Committee is responsible for open market operations (purchases and sales of U.S. Treasury and federal agency securities). Using the three tools, the Federal Reserve influences the demand for, and supply of, balances that depository institutions hold at Federal Reserve Banks and in this way alters the federal funds rate. The federal funds rate is the interest rate at which depository institutions lend balances at the Federal Reserve to other depository institutions overnight. Changes in the federal funds rate trigger a chain of events that affect other short-term interest rates, foreign exchange rates, long-term interest rates, the amount of money and credit, and, ultimately, a range of economic variables, including employment, output, and prices of goods and services. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) consists of twelve members. The FOMC holds eight regularly scheduled meetings per year. At these meetings, the Committee reviews economic and financial conditions, determines the appropriate stance of monetary policy, and assesses the risks to its long-run goals of price stability and sustainable economic growth.

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.

The spending is shown on the basis of data from the budget survey. Spending on goods and services is categorized by function, i.e. goods and services that fulfil a particular need are grouped together. The various types of households are based on spending-related characteristics: level and source of income, household size and composition, age of main earner, home ownership. The budget survey also provides data on the distribution of purchases by distribution channel, also called 'shop types'.
