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.

Average hourly earnings series, derived by dividing gross payrolls by total hours, reflect the actual earnings of workers, including premium pay. They differ from wage rates, which are the amounts stipulated for a given unit of work or time. Average hourly earnings do not represent total labour costs per hour for the employer, because they exclude retroactive payments and irregular bonuses, employee benefits, and the employer's share of payroll taxes. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Current Employment Statistics (CES) program, also known as the payroll survey or the establishment survey, is a monthly sample of nearly 400 000 business establishments nationwide. An establishment is an economic unit that produces goods or services, such as a factory, mine, or store. The survey series are estimates of nonfarm wage and salary jobs, not an estimate of employed persons; an individual with two jobs is counted twice by the payroll survey. The CES employment series excludes workers in agriculture and private households and the self-employed. Employment is the total number of persons employed full or part time in nonfarm establishments during a specified payroll period. Temporary employees are included. CES first preliminary estimates of employment, hours, and earnings are published each month approximately 3 weeks after the reference period. Estimates are then revised twice before being held constant until the annual benchmarking process. Second preliminary estimates for a given month are published the month following the initial release, and final sample-based estimates are published 2 months after the initial release.

Record of the difference between exports of goods and services and imports of goods and services. In the broad sense, this balance is conceptually equal to net exports of goods and services, which is a component of gross domestic product (GDP). Exports are compiled from Shippers' Export Declarations. Imports are compiled from the US Custom Services' Automated Commercial System (ACS). Data refer to general trade and exclude transactions with the US military stationed abroad. Exports include exports of US merchandise plus re-exports of foreign merchandise and exclude in-transit shipments and low value non-commercial shipments. Exports are valued on a f.a.s. basis (free along side). Imports include both entries for immediate consumption and entries into bonded warehouses. Reimports are included and attributed to the country of exportation. Imports are valued on a c.i.f. basis (cost, insurance, freight). Imports are reported in US dollars with an exchange rate given by the US Custom Service. The geographic area covered is the United States Customs area (includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico), the US Virgin Islands and US Foreign Trade Zones.

Initial Jobless Claims is a report issued by the U.S. Department of Labour on a weekly basis. 'Initial Claim' means any notice of unemployment filed to request a determination of entitlement to and eligibility for compensation or a second or subsequent period of unemployment with a benefit year or period of eligibility. This report tracks how many claims have been registered for the previous week. It is a good gauge of the U.S. job market.

People are classified as unemployed if they meet all of the following criteria: They had no employment during the reference week; they were available for work at that time; and they made specific efforts to find employment sometime during the 4-week period ending with the reference week. Persons laid off from a job and expecting recall need not be looking for work to be counted as unemployed. The unemployment data derived from the household survey in no way depend upon the eligibility for or receipt of unemployment insurance benefits. The civilian labour force is the sum of employed and unemployed persons. Those not classified as employed or unemployed are not in the labour force. The unemployment rate is the number unemployed as a percent of the labour force. The labour force participation rate is the labour force as a percent of the population, and the employment-population ratio is the employed as a percent of the population.

Durable Goods Orders ex Defense. The Durable Goods Orders figure is also reported excluding defense expenditures. Orders for items like civilian vehicles or aircrafts are fairly expensive and fluctuate idiosyncratically, distorting the Durable Goods Orders figure. Such goods are excluded to provide a better measure of durable goods orders. The defense industry categories should include sales, inventories, and orders relating to foreign government contracted through the Department of Defense (Foreign Military Assistance Program). Also include subcontracts with other companies where the prime contract is known to be with the Department of Defense.

The Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) survey provides broad-based, monthly statistical data on economic conditions in the domestic manufacturing sector. The survey measures current industrial activity and provides an indication of future business trends. There are 89 separately tabulated industry categories in the M3 survey. These categories are groupings of the 473 manufacturing industries. New orders, as reported in the monthly survey, are net of order cancellations and include orders received and filled during the month as well as orders received for future delivery. They also include the value of contract changes which increase or decrease the value of the unfilled orders to which they relate. Orders are defined to include those supported by binding legal documents such as signed contracts, letters of award, or letters of intent, although in some industries this definition may not be strictly applicable. In the case of letters of intent, the full amount of the sales value is included if the parties are in substantial agreement on the amount; otherwise, only the funds specifically authorized to be expended are included.

This indicator represents the difference (in AUD) in value between imported and exported goods and services during the reported month; This is the largest component of a country's balance of payments. When a country's exports are greater than their imports, a Trade Surplus exists. Similarly, when imports are greater than exports, a Trade Deficit exists. Countries with a severe imbalance are not self-sufficient, either because they rely heavily on foreign markets to purchase their goods (in the case of a Surplus) or because they don't produce enough goods internally to meet demand (in the case of a Deficit).

This indicator measures the total sales of goods and services made by retail stores in Australia. Because a large portion of consumer spending is accounted for in this indicator, it gives a good look at the consumer spending situation, which will account for approximately half of GDP (Gross Domestic Product). This is the percent change from the previous month.
