The Price indices in Producer and Import stages aim to show the average change in prices in producer and import stages for different industries and product groups i.e. in the first distribution stage when goods are delivered from Swedish producers or come into Sweden. Goods are classified into three groups, namely: Swedish produced goods for the domestic market, Swedish produced exported goods, Imported goods. The items are classified according to an international nomenclature consisting of around 6 800 items. The main variable is the producer price which is the price a production unit obtains when selling in the first phase. The price refers to ex works for the Swedish market and fob (free on board) for exports. For imports the price is cif (cost, insurance, freight). The price should be the average invoiced price over a month. Value added taxes and other taxes on goods are not included. However, for the index series for petroleum products, environmental and energy taxes are added to the price. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Wholesale Trade sector comprises establishments engaged in wholesaling merchandise, generally without transformation, and rendering services incidental to the sale of merchandise. The merchandise described in this sector includes the outputs of agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and certain information industries, such as publishing. The wholesaling process is an intermediate step in the distribution of merchandise. Wholesalers are organized to sell or arrange the purchase or sale of goods for resale (i.e., goods sold to other wholesalers or retailers), capital or durable non consumer goods, and raw and intermediate materials and supplies used in production. The index measures the change in the total value of goods held in inventory by wholesalers compared with the previous month.

The HPI is a broad measure of the movement of single-family house prices. The HPI is a weighted, repeat-sales index, meaning that it measures average price changes in repeat sales or refinancing on the same properties. This information is obtained by reviewing repeat mortgage transactions on single-family properties whose mortgages have been purchased or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac since January 1975. This is the percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

Estimates of new single-family houses sold and for sale are obtained from the Survey of Construction (SOC). SOC is comprised of two parts: (1) Survey of Use of Permits (SUP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that require a building permit and (2) Non-permit Survey (NP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that do not require a building permit. A house is considered sold when either a sales contract has been signed or a deposit accepted. Included in the estimates are houses for which a sales contract is signed or deposit accepted before construction has actually started. The estimates also include houses sold while under construction or after completion. The survey does not follow through to the completion ('closing') of the sales transaction, so even if the transaction is not finalized, the house is still considered sold. A house is considered for sale when a permit to build has been issued in permit-issuing places or work has begun on the footings or foundation in nonpermit areas and a sales contract has not been signed nor a deposit accepted.

The Manufacturing Index is a gauge of broad activity in the District's manufacturing sector. It is a composite index representing a weighted average of the shipments (33 percent), new orders (40 percent) and employment (27 percent) indexes. Zero acts as the breakpoint. All firms surveyed are located within the Fifth Federal Reserve District, which includes the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and most of West Virginia. Each month, the Survey of Manufacturing Activity is sent electronically or by mail to about 220 contacts whose firm type, firm size and location collectively match the profile of overall manufacturing in the District. Respondents provide information on current activity, including shipments, new orders, order backlogs, and inventories. In addition, manufacturers inform us about employment conditions, prices and their expectations of business activity for the next six months.

BRC (British Retail Consortium) publishes The Shop Price Index (SPI) which is more focused than the ONS Retail Price Index (RPI), as it only tracks price changes on consumer goods purchased in retail outlets. By examining 500 of the most commonly bought goods across 7 500 price points, the SPI provides a monthly indication of the direction of price changes. This gives an accurate picture of price inflation/deflation of commonly bought goods in shopping locations through the United Kingdom.
