The unemployed labour force is a key indicator of the size of unemployment. The unemployed labour force consists of people aged 15-64 years not working or working for less than twelve hours a week, who are actively looking for paid work for at least twelve hours a week, and who are directly available to start work. As of February 2003 Statistics Netherlands publishes three-month averages of the unemployed labour force based on the Labour Force Survey and the Labour accounts. Apart from the unemployed labour force Statistics Netherlands also calculates data on registered unemployment. The registered unemployed are people aged 16-64 years who do not work or work for less than twelve hours a week, who are registered at a job centre.

The index covers all types of households, all regions in Germany and all goods and services which are in demand in those places - rents, food, clothing and also motor vehicles and services such as hairdresser, dry cleaning or repairs. Calculating the consumer price index is based on a basket of goods and services which includes all goods and services that are relevant components of consumption in Germany. The basket is continuously updated in order to include the goods which are frequently bought by consumers in the current price observation. This is the final percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

The Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices is used to measure inflation in the context of international, mostly inner-European comparisons. Its calculation, which relies on Harmonized concepts, methods and procedures, reflects the development of prices in the individual states based on national consumption patterns. In particular, the prices collected for the German consumer price index are also used to calculate the German Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices. The difference in coverage between the German price index for Germany and the German Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices consists mainly in the additional inclusion of owner-occupied residential property and motor vehicle tax in the German price index for Germany. This is the final percentage change, compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

They represent change in the total value of sales at the retail level, excluding automobiles. Automobile sales account for about 20% of Retail Sales, but they tend to be very volatile and distort the underlying trend. The data excluding autos is therefore thought to be a better scale of spending trends. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Import Price Index measures the change over time in the prices of goods or services purchased from abroad by U.S. residents. Import prices are based on U.S. dollar prices paid by the U.S. importer. The prices are generally either 'free on board' (f.o.b.) foreign port or 'cost, insurance, and freight' (c.i.f.) U.S. port transaction prices, depending on the practices of the individual industry. The index for crude petroleum is calculated from data collected by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Indexes are also a valuable input into the processes of measuring inflation, formulating fiscal and monetary policy, forecasting future prices, conducting elasticity studies, measuring U.S. industrial competitiveness and analysing exchange rates. All goods are included except for military goods, works of art, used items, charity donations, rail road equipment, items leased for less than a year and rebuilt and repaired items. Covered services are air freight and air passenger fares. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Sales include merchandise sold (for cash or credit at retail or wholesale) by establishments primarily engaged in retail trade. Services that are incidental to the sale of merchandise, and excise taxes that are paid by the manufacturer or wholesaler and passed along to the retailer are also included. Sales are net, after deductions, for refunds and allowances for merchandise returned by customers. Sales exclude sales taxes collected directly from customers and paid directly to a local, state, or federal tax agency. The estimates of sales measure the operations receipts rendered by stores that primarily sell at retail. The sales estimates represent total sales and receipts of all establishments primarily engaged in retail trade. They do not include sales at retail by manufacturers, wholesalers, service establishments, and others whose primary activity is other than retail trade. Because the retail establishment is the basic unit of measure, the published estimates of sales by type of retail store are not intended to measure the total sales for a given commodity or merchandise line. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

These categories are groupings of the 473 manufacturing industries. Inventories in the M3 survey are collected on a current cost or pre-LIFO (last in, first out) basis. Inventory data are requested from respondents by stage of fabrication; that is, finished goods, work in process, and raw materials and supplies.

The Treasury International Capital (TIC) reporting system is the U.S. government's source of data on capital flows into and out of the United States, excluding direct investment, and the resulting levels of cross-border claims and liabilities. Information is collected from commercial banks and other depository institutions, bank holding companies, securities brokers and dealers, custodians of securities, and nonbanking enterprises in the United States, including the U.S. branches, agencies and subsidiaries of foreign-based banks and business enterprises. Data are collected by country, at market value, and are published with a forty-five-day lag. The total TIC flow includes Net foreign purchases of long-term securities; Net foreign acquisition of long-term securities; Foreign holdings of dollar-denominated short-term U.S. securities; Foreign holdings of Treasury bills; Banks' own net dollar-denominated liabilities to foreign residents. A positive difference indicates net foreign purchases from U.S. residents (U.S. capital inflow); a negative difference indicates net foreign sales to U.S. residents (U.S. capital outflow).

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) refers to the final products of all resident units in a country (or a region) over a period of time. GDP is expressed in three different forms, i.e. value, income, and products. The value form refers to the total value of all products and services produced over a certain period of time minus the total value of material and service output; the income form covers all the income created by all resident units and distributed primarily to all resident and non-resident units; and the products form refers to the value of all final goods and services for use by all resident units plus the value of net exports over a given period of time. In national accounting, GDP is calculated by means of three approaches, i.e. production approach, income approach, and expenditure approach, which reflect the indicator and its composition from different aspects. This is the percentage change compared to the same period of the previous year.

The tertiary index is closely watched because the service sector employs more than half of the Japanese workforce, and spending on services such as retailing, dining and travel is closely tied to changes in income and consumer confidence. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
