The index represents the value of new orders for construction work received during the month by 50 major constructors. Figures refer to the value of original contracts and construction for own use but not the value of subcontracted orders. Data refer to construction of Buildings and Dwellings. Both public and private new orders are covered by the survey. The survey is compiled from the results of the Survey of Construction Orders Received which is a postal survey directly conducted by the Ministry of Construction. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

These statistics provide one of the representative indices for following trends in housing investment and summarises the number of housing starts at different time points, moreover the statistics have different categories of housing covering owner-occupied relationship such as possessed house, house for rent, subjects of investors, structures, and regions. There are two types of construction: 1: New dwelling construction. In new dwelling construction, new dwelling (including those rebuilt on new premises or new sections of a dwelling) is built by new construction, addition or renovation. 2: Others. These are cases when a new section of a dwelling is not built by addition or renovation. In relation to fluctuations in the economy, it is considered that rising housing starts are a precursor to a rise in the economy.

GDP, gross domestic product at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. It can be defined in three ways: as the sum of gross value added of the various institutional sectors or the various industries plus taxes and less subsidies on products; as the sum of final uses of goods and services by resident institutional units (final consumption, gross capital formation, exports minus imports); as the sum of uses in the total economy generation of income account (compensation of employees, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, gross operating surplus and gross mixed income). This is the percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

French quarterly national accountants compile both transactions in goods and services and distributive transactions and ensure their consistency. From the expenditure side, GDP can be measured as follows: GDP = private final consumption expenditure + government final consumption expenditure + gross fixed capital formation + changes in inventories+ acquisition less disposal of valuables + exports - imports. The accounts for each quarter are released in three publications. The first, entitled 'advance estimate', is released 42 or 43 days after the end of the quarter and gives an estimation of the quarterly growth of gross domestic product (GDP) at 1995 prices, working-day and seasonally adjusted. The second, entitled 'preliminary figures', is issued 50 days after the end of the quarter. It provides an early estimate of transactions in goods and services (trade, output, final consumption, gross fixed capital formation, changes in inventories) working-day and seasonally adjusted, broken down into 16 industries or products. The last publication, called 'detailed figures', is released 90 days after the end of the quarter - and provides full information on transactions in goods and services, and on the accounts for households and enterprises, working-day and seasonally adjusted.

The producer price index for the domestic French market measures the evolution of transaction prices of industrial goods sold on the French market, net of Value Added Tax (VAT). Producer price index for the export markets shows the evolution of transaction prices of industrial goods sold to foreign markets, converted into Euro Free On Board (FOB). The combination of both indices constitutes the industrial product price index (French and external markets). The index is based on the monthly prices (or quarterly prices in certain industries) of 26 000 products gathered from a representative sample of 3 900 enterprises responding to the mandatory survey. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Gross domestic product is an estimate of the value of goods and services produced in a country as far as they are not used as input for the production of other goods or services, in other words it is the value added. From the production side it shows how the sum of value added is distributed over sectors and activities. Gross domestic product on the expenditure side shows how GDP is distributed with respect to consumption, capital formation and foreign trade. It can be measured as follows: GDP = private final consumption expenditure + government final consumption expenditure + gross fixed capital formation + changes in inventories+ acquisition less disposal of valuables + exports - imports. This is the percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

According to the definition of ILO, as concretised by the EU, any person aged between 15 and 74 years is considered unemployed if he/she was not employed in that period, but actively sought work over the four weeks preceding the survey. The volume of time of the work sought is not relevant. The person must be able to take up employment within two weeks. It is not necessary to involve an employment agency or a local institution in the search.

The Federal Employment Agency, counts persons as job-seekers who are registered as unemployed with the employment agencies, are temporarily without a job or perform just a marginal part-time work (i.e. a work regularly comprising less than 15 hours per week). Also, the job-seeker must be available for placement efforts of the employment agency, he/she must not be incapable for work due to sickness, must not have completed 65 years and must look for a job subject to social insurance contributions and comprising at least 15 hours per week. In turn, the statistics of the Federal Employment Agency counts persons as registered unemployed who are not unemployed according to the definitions of the ILO labour market statistics. This refers in particular to registered unemployed performing a marginal part-time work to the extent permitted, and persons who actually do not look for work although they are formally registered unemployed.

It describes a basket of goods and services bought on the market for households final use. The price referred to in the consumer price index for the whole nation is the comprehensive selling price whether entirely paid by the consumer or not. Each month some 300 000 quotations are collected in 25 000 stores and 12 000 houses. Owner-occupied housing is excluded. This is the flash percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by industry at basic prices is a measure of the economic production which takes place within the geographical boundaries of Canada. The term 'gross' in GDP means that capital consumption costs, that is the costs associated with the depreciation of capital assets (buildings, machinery and equipment), are included. The production estimates are prepared for 215 separate industries using the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). The GDP by industry measures provide an alternate measure of total economic activity that supplements the income and expenditure-based estimates prepared by Income and Expenditure Accounts Division, and constitute an extension (on a monthly basis) of the System of National Accounts Input-Output Tables.

The Industrial Product Price Index (IPPI) reflects the prices that producers in Canada receive as the goods leave the plant gate. It does not reflect what the consumer pays. Unlike the Consumer Price Index, the IPPI excludes indirect taxes and all the costs that occur between the time a good leaves the plant and the time the final user takes possession of it, including the transportation, wholesale, and retail costs. Many prices collected to calculate the IPPI are quoted in US dollars and then converted into Canadian dollars. Therefore, a rise or fall in the value of the Canadian dollar against its US counterpart affects the IPPI. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Raw Materials Price Index (RMPI) measures price changes for raw materials purchased by industries in Canada for further processing. As a purchasers' price index, prices include all charges purchasers incur to bring a commodity to the establishment gate. Thus transportation charges, net taxes paid, and custom duties are all included, as well as the effects of subsidies, if any are paid to the purchaser. The index provides the movement in prices for a group of major inputs into goods produced in Canada. It helps cover the spectrum of price changes in the Canadian economy, and is valuable directly and in relation to the price movements of products derived in part from these materials. The RMPI basket weights are generally updated every five years. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
