GDP, gross domestic product at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. It can be defined in three ways: as the sum of gross value added of the various institutional sectors or the various industries plus taxes and less subsidies on products; as the sum of final uses of goods and services by resident institutional units (final consumption, gross capital formation, exports minus imports); as the sum of uses in the total economy generation of income account (compensation of employees, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, gross operating surplus and gross mixed income). This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Index represents a monthly survey of manufacturers in New York State conducted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The survey is sent on the first day of each month to the same pool of about 200 manufacturing executives in New York State. Participants respond to a questionnaire and report the change in a variety of indicators from the previous month. Respondents also state the likely direction of these same indicators six months ahead. April 2002 is the first report. Results are calculated as the difference between percentage of positive and negative scores. Zero acts as the breakpoint.

The Federal Reserve Board constructs estimates of capacity and capacity utilization for industries in manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities. For a given industry, the capacity utilization rate is equal to an output index (seasonally adjusted) divided by a capacity index. The Federal Reserve Board's capacity indexes attempt to capture the concept of sustainable maximum output - the greatest level of output a plant can maintain within the framework of a realistic work schedule, after factoring in normal downtime and assuming sufficient availability of inputs to operate the capital in place.

Manufacturing consists of those industries included in the North American Industry Classification System, or NAICS, definition of manufacturing plus those industries that have traditionally been considered to be manufacturing and included in the industrial sector. The total IP index has been constructed from 303 individual series based on the 2002 North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes.

The Bank carries out monetary policy by influencing short-term interest rates. It does this by raising and lowering the target for the overnight rate. The overnight rate is the interest rate at which major financial institutions borrow and lend one-day (or 'overnight') funds among themselves; the Bank sets a target level for that rate. Changes in the target for the overnight rate influence other interest rates, such as those for consumer loans and mortgages. The goal of Canadian monetary policy is to keep the rate of inflation, as measured by the annual rate of increase in the consumer price index, inside a target range established jointly with the government. Since 1995, the target range has been 1 to 3 per cent. In November 2000, the Bank introduced a system of eight 'fixed' dates each year on which it announces whether or not it will change the key policy rate. On the Friday before the fixed action date, the Governing Council begins its own deliberations in earnest. The Council operates on a consensus basis. The Council begins by developing a common view on the most likely future path for the economy and the underlying trend in inflation. The Council reconvenes the following Monday, and by the end of the day reaches a consensus decision on the setting of the rate. With support from a senior communications staff member, they prepare the press release that outlines the reasons behind the decision.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the price change of goods and services purchased by private New Zealand households. The CPI measures the changing cost of purchasing a fixed basket of goods and services which represents the average expenditure pattern of New Zealand households at the index base period. It is used as a measure of inflation, an indicator for monitoring economic and monetary policy, an indicator of the effect of price change on the purchasing power of households' incomes, as a means to adjust benefits, allowances and incomes, and as a price deflator Changes in the level of a price index are calculated by weighting the changes in the surveyed prices of a particular set of items. The set of items represents the basket of goods and services that the index purports to measure. Item (expenditure) weights are estimates of the overall significance of each of the different items in the basket. This is the percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

The Employment Change indicator is a measurement of new jobs created within the Australian economy throughout the previous month. Consumer spending is closely linked to the creation of new jobs, as those who are employed tend to spend more (and put more back into the economy) than those who are unemployed. Employment levels and the creation of new jobs will largely impact the strength of an economy, thus a rising trend seen in this indicator should positively impact a nation's currency.

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.
