Up to and including March 2005, data refers to all persons of working age who during the reference week were not employed, but were willing and able to work and had looked for work (or would have looked for work if they had not been temporarily prevented from doing so) during the last four weeks. Also included are persons waiting to begin a job starting within three months. Data from 1976 include students who comply with ILO unemployment criteria. As from October 2007, the Swedish Labour Force Survey unemployment criteria also include students looking for job. The rate is calculated as the unemployed as a percentage of total labour force. Total labour force equals the employed plus the unemployed as defined in the labour force survey.

Bureau of Labour Statistics also calculates and publishes indexes for special aggregations, such as energy items, that cut across the above classification scheme. The series All items less food and energy sometimes is said to measure the core rate of inflation. Food and energy are two of the most volatile components of the CPI (Consumer Price Index). For this reason, many analysts regard the measure of core inflation as more useful for their purposes. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The CPI (Consumer Price Index) provides an estimate of the price change between any two periods. The CPI follows the prices of a sample of items in various categories of consumer spending - such as food, clothing, shelter, and medical services - that people buy for day-to-day living. The CPI covers the consumption sector of the U.S. economy. Consequently, it excludes investment items, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and business expenses. Life insurance also is excluded for this reason, although health, household, and vehicle insurance are in scope. Purchases of houses, antiques, and collectibles are viewed as investment expenditures and therefore excluded. In the CPI, the urban portion of the United States is divided into 38 geographic areas called index areas, and the set of all goods and services purchased by consumers is divided into 211 categories called item strata. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Money Supply M2 is a Money stock index. The Money stock indices are basically defined as the quantity of money held by money holders (corporations, individuals, and local governments including municipal enterprises). Corporations exclude depository institutions, insurance companies, government financial institutions, securities companies, Tanshi companies, etc. Deposits, etc. held by financial institutions and the central government are not included. М2 = cash currency in circulation + deposits. The money issuers are: Bank of Japan, domestically licensed banks (excluding Japan Post Bank), foreign banks in Japan, Shinkin Central Bank, shinkin banks, Norinchukin Bank, and Shoko Chukin Bank. As regards M2 and M3, the differences between the two series mainly derive from the differences in the range of money holders and the estimation method of some data. Apart from that, M2 and 'M2+CDs (former series)' have the same range of money issuers and financial assets (except for nonresident yen deposits). Similarly, M3 and 'M3+CDs - money trusts (former series)' have the same range of money issuers and financial assets (except for nonresident yen deposits). This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.
