The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) quantifies the economic performance of the national economy. It is an estimate of the value of goods and services produced in a country as far as they are not used as input for the production of other goods or services, in other words it is the value added. The GDP is calculated at current and previous year prices. At previous year prices, the GDP shows the real annual economic development, namely not biased by the prices evolution. The GDP can be calculated in three different ways: the production approach, the income approach, the expenditure approach. From the expenditure side, GDP can be measured as follows: GDP = private final consumption expenditure + government final consumption expenditure + gross fixed capital formation + changes in inventories+ acquisition less disposal of valuables + exports - imports. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Nationwide House Prices measure a change in value caused by inflation using a statistical method to construct an 'average house'. Using the vast majority of Nationwide's sample of mortgage data, the index calculates the price of the 'average house' from a set of features. The 'average house' represents the average price of a group of '100 properties', each with a set of 10 representative features (property type, whether it is new, region, neighbourhood characteristics at local and parliamentary constituency level, internal floor size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, type of garage, and central heating status). This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Silf (earlier I&L) and Swedbank AB. (at that time Sparbanken Sweden) make the first joint- internal-calculation of the “Purchasing Managers' Index” for the five indexes (PMI) in December 1994. Exactly one year later, the index was publicly announced for the first time. In Sweden the Puchasing Managers' Index is known as the ICI index. About 200 purchasing managers in the manufacturing industry are asked about New orders, Production, Employment, Suppliers' Delivery Times (within the company), and Inventories (purchased material). The dividing line between growth and decline – in line with US praxis – has been drawn at a total index of 50.

Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) is based on monthly questionnaire surveys of carefully selected companies which provide an advance indication of what is really happening in the private sector economy by tracking changes in variables such as output, new orders, stock levels, employment and prices across the manufacturing sector. The PMI is the first economic indicators for each month, providing accurate evidence of changing economic conditions well ahead of comparable government statistics. The index is presented as an index with a value between 1-100. Values above 50 indicate that the economic outlook is positive. Alternately, readings below 50 mean future outlook is less favourable. The survey is compiled by Markit Economics in association with AERCE (www.aerce.org).

According to the definition of ILO, as concretised by the EU, any person aged between 15 and 74 years is considered unemployed if he/she was not employed in that period, but actively sought work over the four weeks preceding the survey. The volume of time of the work sought is not relevant. The person must be able to take up employment within two weeks. It is not necessary to involve an employment agency or a local institution in the search.

The Federal Employment Agency, counts persons as job-seekers who are registered as unemployed with the employment agencies, are temporarily without a job or perform just a marginal part-time work (i.e. a work regularly comprising less than 15 hours per week). Also, the job-seeker must be available for placement efforts of the employment agency, he/she must not be incapable for work due to sickness, must not have completed 65 years and must look for a job subject to social insurance contributions and comprising at least 15 hours per week. In turn, the statistics of the Federal Employment Agency counts persons as registered unemployed who are not unemployed according to the definitions of the ILO labour market statistics. This refers in particular to registered unemployed performing a marginal part-time work to the extent permitted, and persons who actually do not look for work although they are formally registered unemployed.

Gross domestic product (GDP) is a measure for the economic activity. It is defined as the value of all goods and services produced less the value of any goods or services used in their creation. GDP at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. From the expenditure side, GDP can be measured as follows: GDP = private final consumption expenditure + government final consumption expenditure + gross fixed capital formation + changes in inventories+ acquisition less disposal of valuables + exports - imports. This is the final percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Manufacturing CIPS (The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply): A monthly gauge of manufacturing activity and future outlook. The survey is comparable to the US ISM survey, similarly based on the opinions of executives in manufacturing companies. Purchasing managers are asked about future demand, and adjusting orders for materials accordingly. The index summarizes the opinions of these executives to give a picture of the future of the manufacturing sector. The index is presented as an index with a value between 1-100. Values above 50 indicate that the economic outlook is positive. Alternately, readings below 50 mean future outlook is less favourable.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by industry at basic prices is a measure of the economic production which takes place within the geographical boundaries of Canada. The term 'gross' in GDP means that capital consumption costs, that is the costs associated with the depreciation of capital assets (buildings, machinery and equipment), are included. The production estimates are prepared for 215 separate industries using the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). The GDP by industry measures provide an alternate measure of total economic activity that supplements the income and expenditure-based estimates prepared by Income and Expenditure Accounts Division, and constitute an extension (on a monthly basis) of the System of National Accounts Input-Output Tables.

The RBC Canadian Manufacturing PMI Report is based on data compiled from monthly replies to questionnaires sent to purchasing executives at over 400 industrial companies. RBC PMI is a composite index based on five of the individual indexes: New Orders, Output, Employment, Suppliers’ Delivery Times, Stock of Items Purchased. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable. PMI surveys are the first indicators of economic conditions published each month and are therefore available well ahead of comparable data produced by government bodies.

The 'value of construction put in place' is a measure of the value of construction installed or erected at the site during a given period. For an individual project, this includes: Cost of materials installed or erected; Cost of labour (both by contractors and force account) and a proportionate share of the cost of construction equipment rental; Contractor's profit; Cost of architectural and engineering work; Miscellaneous overhead and office costs chargeable to the project on the owner's books; Interest and taxes paid during construction (except for state and locally owned projects). The total value-in-place for a given period is the sum of the value of work done on all projects underway during this period, regardless of when work on each individual project was started or when payment was made to the contractors. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

BRC (British Retail Consortium) publishes The Shop Price Index (SPI) which is more focused than the ONS Retail Price Index (RPI), as it only tracks price changes on consumer goods purchased in retail outlets. By examining 500 of the most commonly bought goods across 7 500 price points, the SPI provides a monthly indication of the direction of price changes. This gives an accurate picture of price inflation/deflation of commonly bought goods in shopping locations through the United Kingdom.
