Up to and including March 2005, data refers to all persons of working age who during the reference week were not employed, but were willing and able to work and had looked for work (or would have looked for work if they had not been temporarily prevented from doing so) during the last four weeks. Also included are persons waiting to begin a job starting within three months. Data from 1976 include students who comply with ILO unemployment criteria. As from October 2007, the Swedish Labour Force Survey unemployment criteria also include students looking for job. The rate is calculated as the unemployed as a percentage of total labour force. Total labour force equals the employed plus the unemployed as defined in the labour force survey.

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.

The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle. The leading, coincident, and lagging economic indexes are essentially composite averages of several individual leading, coincident, or lagging indicators. They are constructed to summarize and reveal common turning point patterns in economic data in a clearer and more convincing manner than any individual component - primarily because they smooth out some of the volatility of individual components. Historically, the cyclical turning points in the leading economic index have occurred before those in aggregate economic activity, while the cyclical turning points in the coincident economic index have occurred at about the same time as those in aggregate economic activity. The cyclical turning points in the lagging economic index generally have occurred after those in aggregate economic activity. Leading Economic Index includes the following indicators: Average weekly hours, manufacturing; Average weekly initial claims for unemployment insurance; Manufacturers' new orders, consumer goods and materials; Index of supplier deliveries – vendor performance; Manufacturers' new orders, nondefense capital goods; Building permits, new private housing units; Stock prices, 500 common stocks; Money supply, M2; Interest rate spread, 10-year Treasury bonds less federal funds; Index of consumer expectations. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

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 previous month.
