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.

These orders refer to products from own production or from contract processing by other firms. The monthly indices of orders received in manufacturing rank among the most important early indicators for monitoring and analysing the short-term economic development in Germany. This is the percentage change, compared with the previous month.

The Industrial Production Index (IPI) is a situational indicator that measures the monthly development of productive activity of industrial branches, excluding construction. It therefore measures the joint development of quantity and quality, eliminating the influence of prices. To obtain this a continuous monthly survey is carried out, which investigates more than 13 200 industrial establishments every month. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Employment consists of both employees and self-employed, who are engaged in some productive activity that falls within the production boundary of the system. Employment covers employees and self-employed working for production units resident on the economic territory (i.e. the domestic employment concept). Employment is measured in number of persons without distinction according to full-time or part-time work. Growth rates with respect to the previous quarter are calculated from seasonally adjusted figures.

Gross domestic product (GDP) is a measure for the economic activity. It is defined as the value of all goods and services produced less the value of any goods or services used in their creation. The volume index of GDP is expressed in relation to the European Union (EU-27) average set to equal 100. If the index of a country is higher than 100, this country's level of GDP per head is higher than the EU average and vice versa. GDP at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. 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. This is the flash percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

Record of the difference between exports of goods and services and imports of goods and services. In the broad sense, this balance is conceptually equal to net exports of goods and services, which is a component of gross domestic product (GDP). Exports are compiled from Shippers' Export Declarations. Imports are compiled from the US Custom Services' Automated Commercial System (ACS). Data refer to general trade and exclude transactions with the US military stationed abroad. Exports include exports of US merchandise plus re-exports of foreign merchandise and exclude in-transit shipments and low value non-commercial shipments. Exports are valued on a f.a.s. basis (free along side). Imports include both entries for immediate consumption and entries into bonded warehouses. Reimports are included and attributed to the country of exportation. Imports are valued on a c.i.f. basis (cost, insurance, freight). Imports are reported in US dollars with an exchange rate given by the US Custom Service. The geographic area covered is the United States Customs area (includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico), the US Virgin Islands and US Foreign Trade Zones.

Durable Goods Orders ex Defense. The Durable Goods Orders figure is also reported excluding defense expenditures. Orders for items like civilian vehicles or aircrafts are fairly expensive and fluctuate idiosyncratically, distorting the Durable Goods Orders figure. Such goods are excluded to provide a better measure of durable goods orders. The defense industry categories should include sales, inventories, and orders relating to foreign government contracted through the Department of Defense (Foreign Military Assistance Program). Also include subcontracts with other companies where the prime contract is known to be with the Department of Defense.

The Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) survey provides broad-based, monthly statistical data on economic conditions in the domestic manufacturing sector. The survey measures current industrial activity and provides an indication of future business trends. There are 89 separately tabulated industry categories in the M3 survey. These categories are groupings of the 473 manufacturing industries. New orders, as reported in the monthly survey, are net of order cancellations and include orders received and filled during the month as well as orders received for future delivery. They also include the value of contract changes which increase or decrease the value of the unfilled orders to which they relate. Orders are defined to include those supported by binding legal documents such as signed contracts, letters of award, or letters of intent, although in some industries this definition may not be strictly applicable. In the case of letters of intent, the full amount of the sales value is included if the parties are in substantial agreement on the amount; otherwise, only the funds specifically authorized to be expended are included.

The Ivey PMI (Purchasing Manager's Index), sponsored by the Richard Ivey School of Business and the Purchasing Management Association of Canada, shows month to month variation in economic activity. The Ivey Purchasing Manager's Index measures changes in dollars of purchases as indicated by a panel of purchasing managers from across Canada. The 175 participants in this survey have been carefully selected geographically and by sector of activity to match the Canadian economy as a whole. The index includes both the public and private sectors. Index panel members indicate whether their organizations activity is higher than the same as, or lower than the previous month across the following five categories: purchases, employment, inventories, supplier deliveries and prices. The Ivey PMI shows responses to one question: "Were your purchases last month in dollars higher, the same, or lower than the previous month?" A figure above 50 shows an increase while below 50 shows a decrease.

The survey unit is the household except one-person household of student in the entire area of Japan. The sample households are selected based on the three-stage stratified sampling method. The sampling units at three stages are namely, the municipality (i.e. city, town and village), the survey unit area and the household. Data are obtained in four kinds of questionnaires, namely, Household Schedule, Family Account Book, Yearly Income Schedule and Savings Schedule. Enumerators fill in the Household Schedule with the number of household members, occupation and industry of earners, type of the dwelling, etc. Households are requested to fill in the Family Account Books with daily income and expenditures. For workers' households and households of the head not working, both incomes and expenditures in cash and in kind are recorded, while for other households (except for households of the head not working) cash payment and consumption in kind only. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.
