Monetary policy has a significant influence on the daily lives of the public, and thus the Bank should seek to clarify to the public the content of its decisions, as well as its decision-making processes, regarding monetary policy. In view of this, the Bank immediately releases its decisions on monetary policy, such as the guideline for money market operations and its views on economic and financial developments, after each MPM. In addition, regular press conferences by the chairman of the Policy Board - the Governor - are held to explain details of the monetary policy decisions. The Bank also releases the minutes of the MPMs, and releases their transcripts ten years later, to clarify points discussed by the Policy Board in the process of reaching decisions.

Harmonised Indices of Consumer Prices (HICPs) are designed for international comparisons of consumer price inflation. HICPs are used for the assessment of the inflation convergence criterion as required under Article 121 of the Treaty of Amsterdam and by the ECB for assessing price stability for monetary policy purposes. HICPs are compiled on the basis of harmonised standards, binding for all Member States. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Construction Production Index is a business cycle indicator showing the output and activity of construction. It measures changes in the volume of output at close and regular intervals. It provides a measure of the volume trend in value added at basic prices over a given reference period. Value added at basic prices can be calculated from turnover (excluding VAT and other similar deductible taxes directly linked to turnover), plus capitalized production, plus other operating income plus or minus the changes in stocks, minus the purchases of goods and services, minus taxes on products which are linked to turnover but not deductible plus any subsidies on products received. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Initial Jobless Claims is a report issued by the U.S. Department of Labour on a weekly basis. 'Initial Claim' means any notice of unemployment filed to request a determination of entitlement to and eligibility for compensation or a second or subsequent period of unemployment with a benefit year or period of eligibility. This report tracks how many claims have been registered for the previous week. It is a good gauge of the U.S. job market.

The start of construction is when excavation begins for the footings or foundation of a building. All housing units in a multifamily building are defined as being started when excavation for the building has begun. Beginning with statistics for September 1992, estimates of housing starts include units in residential structures being totally rebuilt on an existing foundation. Housing starts are estimated for all areas of the United States, regardless of whether permits are required.

Statistics on housing units authorized by building permits include housing units issued in local permit-issuing jurisdictions by a building or zoning permit. Not all areas of the country require a building or zoning permit. The statistics only represent those areas that do require a permit. Current surveys indicate that construction is undertaken for all but a very small percentage of housing units authorized by building permits. A major portion typically get under way during the month of permit issuance and most of the remainder begin within the three following months. Because of this lag, the housing unit authorization statistics do not represent the number of units actually put into construction for the period shown, and should therefore not be directly interpreted as "housing starts".

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is calculated to measure the average price movements of goods and services purchased by households throughout the country. It reflects changes of the cost of purchasing goods and services in a fixed “market basket”, but is not designed to measure changes of the cost of living attributed to the changes of types, quality and quantity of goods and services consumers purchase. expenditures other than the living expenditure (e.g., direct taxes, social insurance premiums, security purchases, land and housing purchases) are not included in the scope of the CPI. The index figures of the preceding month for the whole country, and the preliminary figures of the current month for the Ku-area of Tokyo are released. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.
