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 preliminary percentage change, compared with the previous month.

National Association of Realtor's (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) is released during the first week of each month. The index measures housing contract activity. It is based on signed real estate contracts for existing single-family homes, condos and co-ops. A sale is listed as pending when the contract has been signed and the transaction has not closed, but the sale usually is finalized within one or two months of signing. An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, the first year to be examined, and was the first of five consecutive record years for existing-home sales. The Pending Home Sales Index is based on a large national sample, typically representing about 20 percent of transactions for existing-home sales.
