The CPI reflects developments in the prices of goods and services which consumers buy. Inflation is measured as the percentage of increase of the CPI in a certain period compared with the corresponding period in the previous year. The CPI reflects increases and decreases of the prices of goods and services which an average household in the Netherlands bought in the base year for the purposes of consumption. This package of goods and services is also known as the basket or shopping basket. The basket contains day to day shopping items, spending on durable consumer goods such as washing machines and cars, rent, school and tuition fees and consumption-related taxes such as property tax and motor vehicle tax. Not all expenditure is included in the calculation of the CPI: income tax, social premiums and spending on insured health care, for example, are nor taken into account.

The production index measures the monthly performance of the industry in Germany. Due to its periodicity, its rapid availability and detailed breakdown by branches of economic activity, it is a central and up-to-date indicator of the development of business activity. Every month, the statistical offices of the Länder conduct a nationwide survey at local units of manufacturing with 50 employees or more. This survey collects quantity and value information on the monthly production of more than 6 000 industrial products. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The decisions on interest rates are announced at 12 noon (GMT) immediately following the Thursday meeting. The Bank seeks to meet the inflation target by setting an interest rate. The level of interest rates is decided by a special committee – the Monetary Policy Committee. The MPC consists of nine members – five from the Bank of England and four external members appointed by the Chancellor. It is chaired by the Governor of the Bank of England. Decisions of the Monetary Policy Committee are made on a one-person one-vote basis, with the Governor having the casting vote if there is no majority. The Bank's monetary policy objective is to deliver price stability – low inflation – and, subject to that, to support the Government's economic objectives including those for growth and employment. Price stability is defined by the Government's inflation target of 2%. Interest rates would be changing all the time, and by large amounts, causing unnecessary uncertainty and volatility in the economy.
