The Retail Sales Index (RSI) is derived from a monthly survey of 5,000 businesses in Great Britain and measures the change in the volume of sales by retailers in the country. The sample represents the whole retail sector and includes all large retailers and a representative panel of smaller businesses. Collectively all of these businesses cover approximately 95 per cent of the retail sector in terms of turnover. Higher retail sales volume shows stronger consumer demand, higher retail output, and economic growth. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

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 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 CDAF (www.cdaf.asso.fr). This is the final estimate.

Producer Price Index (PPI). The Price indices in Producer and Import stages aim to show the average change in prices in producer and import stages for different industries and product groups i.e. in the first distribution stage when goods are delivered from Swedish producers or come into Sweden. Goods are classified into three groups, namely: Swedish produced goods for the domestic market, Swedish produced exported goods, Imported goods. The items are classified according to an international nomenclature consisting of around 6 800 items. The main variable is the producer price which is the price a production unit obtains when selling in the first phase. The price refers to ex works for the Swedish market and fob (free on board) for exports. For imports the price is cif (cost, insurance, freight). The price should be the average invoiced price over a month. Value added taxes and other taxes on goods are not included. However, for the index series for petroleum products, environmental and energy taxes are added to the price. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

Retail Sales estimates obtained from retailers are a key monthly indicator of consumer purchasing patterns in Canada. Furthermore, retail sales are an important component of the Gross Domestic Product, which measures Canada's production. Retail sales estimates do not include any form of direct selling that bypasses the retail store, e.g., direct door-to-door selling; sales made through automatic vending machines; sales of newspapers or magazines sold directly by printers or publishers; and sales made by book and record clubs. Internet retailing activities are included in the survey only when conducted through the same legal structure as the retail establishment. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
