Companies in retail trade sell goods produced elsewhere directly to households and individuals. There are annual and monthly figures on turnover, prices and volume; and also figures on operating costs and revenues, and on employment and wages in the retail trade. The retail trade is divided into shops selling food products, shops selling non-food products, and trade through channels other than shops (e.g. market trade, trade via the Internet and mail order companies).

The rate uses benchmark unemployment data compiled from the results of the annual household Employment Survey, updated using the changes in the monthly registered unemployment figures. From the first quarter of 2008 onwards, the wording of the question on the wish to work longer hours used for the calculation of under-employment, and the definition of under-employment have been amended to be closer to the ILO-concept. The Unemployment rate refers to the number of persons unemployed, according to ILO definitions, as a percentage of the total labour force.

The consumer price index for Germany measures the average price change for all goods and services purchased by households for consumption purposes. The consumer price index provides an overall picture of price rises in Germany. 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 previous month.

The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices is used to measure inflation in the context of international, mostly inner-European comparisons. Its calculation, which relies on Harmonised 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 Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices. The difference in coverage between the German price index for Germany and the German Harmonised 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 previous month.

The gross domestic product (GDP) is the main indicator for the development of the economy. Economic growth is measured in terms of the volume change in GDP. This is the sum of value added generated in the Netherlands. Value added equals value of production minus value of consumption. Here it is thus the value that is added to the goods and services used in the production process. Consumption does not include services of labour and capital. Value added can be valued at basic prices and at market prices. Value added excluding indirect taxes and subsidies (with the exception of non-product related taxes and subsidies) is called value added at basic prices. If the indirect taxes and subsidies are included, the term value added at market prices is used. The term “gross” also indicates that depreciation is included in value added, and thus also in GDP. Provides the first estimate of growth in GDP.

This indicator represents the difference (in EUR) in value between imported and exported goods and services during the reported month; This is the largest component of a country's balance of payments. When a country's exports are greater than their imports, a Trade Surplus exists. Similarly, when imports are greater than exports, a Trade Deficit exists. Countries with a severe imbalance are not self-sufficient, either because they rely heavily on foreign markets to purchase their goods (in the case of a Surplus) or because they don't produce enough goods internally to meet demand (in the case of a Deficit).

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.

The tertiary index measures spending in the services sector, covering areas like insurance, real estate and retail trade. 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.
