The monthly survey gives a picture of households' opinions on their economic environment and on some aspects of their personal economic circumstances. It provides information on consumer behaviour and expectations in regard to spending and saving. The survey monitors short-term phenomena such as prices, unemployment, and saving as they are perceived by households, independently of macroeconomic indicators. The summary indicator is the arithmetic mean of the following five indicators: living standards in France (past change / outlook); personal financial position (past change / outlook); timeliness of major purchases. For each question asked, s balance of opinion equal to the difference between the percentages of positive and negative responses is calculated. About 2 000 households are interviewed by telephone.

The index measures consumers' opinions by combining their answers to nine questions on the economic situation of the country, the economic situation of the family regarding employment, savings, purchase of durable goods and their financial situation. Data are first calculated as the percent balance of positive over negative answers. For the questions for which five answers are possible the extreme responses are double weighted. A simple arithmetic average of the answers is then computed. The indicator is presented as an index. The sample is selected from the population aged 18 years and over. Approximately 2000 persons are selected.

GDP excludes intermediate purchases of goods and services by business. Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) measures goods and services purchased by U.S. residents. Gross private domestic investment consists of fixed investment and the change in private inventories. Fixed investment consists of both non-residential fixed investment and residential fixed investment. Government consumption expenditures and gross investment, the measure of government sector final demand, consists of two major components: Current consumption expenditures by general government and gross investment by both general government and government enterprises. There are 3 versions of GDP released a month apart - Advance, Preliminary, and Final. This is the final release. Quarterly estimates are expressed at seasonally adjusted annual rates.

National Association of Realtor's (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) is released during the first week of each month. The index measures housing contract activity. It is based on signed real estate contracts for existing single-family homes, condos and co-ops. A sale is listed as pending when the contract has been signed and the transaction has not closed, but the sale usually is finalized within one or two months of signing. An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, the first year to be examined, and was the first of five consecutive record years for existing-home sales. The Pending Home Sales Index is based on a large national sample, typically representing about 20 percent of transactions for existing-home sales.
