Employed is defined as persons with income from work. Unemployed is defined as persons with no income-earning work, but who are seeking work and can start working immediately. The percentage is calculated from the labour force. Labour force is the total of the employed and unemployed. There are two measurements of unemployment in Norway: Figures for registered unemployment at the Directorate Of Labour and Statistics Norway's figures based on the Labour Force Survey. The difference between the figures is that the survey includes unemployed persons who do not register with the employment service and some of those on labour market measures.

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 service 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.

Producer Price Indices are business cycle indicators showing the monthly development of transaction prices of economic activities. They can be an early indicator of inflationary pressures in the economy, but also record the evolution of prices over longer periods of time. The total output price index is broken down into domestic output price index and non-domestic output price index. The domestic output price index for an economic activity measures the average price development of all goods and related services resulting from that activity and sold on the domestic market. The non-domestic price index shows the average price development (converted to local currency) of all goods and related services resulting from that activity and sold outside of the domestic market. When combined, these two indices show the average price development of all goods and related services resulting from an activity. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
