The current account is the sum of the balance of trade (exports minus imports of goods and services), net factor income (such as interest and dividends) and net transfer payments (such as foreign aid). The current account is one of the three Balance of Payments sub-balances together with capital account and financial account. The Balance of Payments is the statistical statement that systematically summarizes, for a specific time period, the economic transactions of an economy with the rest of the world.

For short term indicators, the cycles that are relevant for the economic trends and which by definition have periodicities longer than one year, are generally affected by considerable short-term fluctuations (trend, economic fluctuations, seasonal fluctuations, calendar fluctuations, residual or irregular fluctuations). As a consequence, analysing the current business-cycle phase is quite difficult. To improve the accuracy of the economic trend analyses, it is common to apply mathematical filtering techniques to remove such fluctuations from the time series. So the value becomes Seasonally Adjusted (SA).

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 start of construction is when excavation begins for the footings or foundation of a building. All housing units in a multifamily building are defined as being started when excavation for the building has begun. Beginning with statistics for September 1992, estimates of housing starts include units in residential structures being totally rebuilt on an existing foundation. Housing starts are estimated for all areas of the United States, regardless of whether permits are required.
