The CPI is the main UK measure of inflation for macroeconomic purposes and forms the basis for the Government's inflation target. Each month around 120 000 separate price quotations are collected for around 650 items which make up the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) 'basket' of goods and services. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

The output price index measures change in the prices of goods produced by UK manufacturers (these are often called 'factory gate prices'). The Core Output PPI excludes volatile items such as food and energy. The Core PPI is generally a better measure of inflation because it excludes those items whose short-term price fluctuations can distort inflationary data.

The Retail Prices Index (RPI) is the most familiar general purpose domestic measure of inflation in the United Kingdom. It is commonly used in private contracts for uprating of maintenance payments and housing rents. It measures the average change from month to month in the prices of goods and services purchased by most households in the United Kingdom. The spending pattern on which the index is based is revised each year, mainly using information from the Expenditure and Food Survey. The index is compiled using a large and representative selection of around 650 separate goods and services for which price movements are regularly measured in around 150 147 areas throughout the United Kingdom. Around 120 000 separate price quotations are used each month in compiling the index, which is published each month.

Exports of goods record flows from an European Area/European Union (EA/EU) Member State to a non-EA/EU country while imports record inwards flows. Exports are expressed in value terms and measured 'free on board (FOB)', while imports are expressed in value terms and measured 'cost, insurance, freight' (CIF ). 'Goods' means all movable property including electric current. Data are expressed in billion Euro.

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.

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.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is an indicator of changes in consumer prices experienced by Canadians. It is obtained by comparing through time, the cost of a fixed basket of commodities purchased by consumers. Since the basket contains commodities of unchanging or equivalent quantity and quality, the index reflects only pure price change. The CPI is widely used as an indicator of the change in the general level of consumer prices or the rate of inflation. Price movements of the goods and services represented in the CPI are weighted according to the relative importance of commodities in the total expenditures of consumers. CPI basket shares are updated at intervals of about 4 years; they are obtained from household surveys (Survey of Household Spending and Survey of Food Expenditures). This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The term 'monetary policy' refers to the actions undertaken by a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve, to influence the availability and cost of money and credit to help promote national economic goals. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 gave the Federal Reserve responsibility for setting monetary policy. The Federal Reserve controls the three tools of monetary policy - open market operations, the discount rate, and reserve requirements. The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is responsible for the discount rate (the interest rate charged to commercial banks and other depository institutions on loans they receive from their regional Federal Reserve Bank's lending facility) and reserve requirements (the amount of funds that a depository institution must hold in reserve against specified deposit liabilities), and the Federal Open Market Committee is responsible for open market operations (purchases and sales of U.S. Treasury and federal agency securities). Using the three tools, the Federal Reserve influences the demand for, and supply of, balances that depository institutions hold at Federal Reserve Banks and in this way alters the federal funds rate. The federal funds rate is the interest rate at which depository institutions lend balances at the Federal Reserve to other depository institutions overnight. Changes in the federal funds rate trigger a chain of events that affect other short-term interest rates, foreign exchange rates, long-term interest rates, the amount of money and credit, and, ultimately, a range of economic variables, including employment, output, and prices of goods and services. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) consists of twelve members. The FOMC holds eight regularly scheduled meetings per year. At these meetings, the Committee reviews economic and financial conditions, determines the appropriate stance of monetary policy, and assesses the risks to its long-run goals of price stability and sustainable economic growth.

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.
