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.

The index of producer prices for industrial products (domestic sales) measures on a representative basis the development of the prices of products which are produced in mining and manufacturing or in the energy and water industries and are sold inside the country. These price statistics cover both the sales of industrial products to domestic buyers at different stages in the economic process and the sales between industrial enterprises. As the index of producer prices measures price changes at an early stage in the economic process, it can serve as an indicator of future inflation trends. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The current account is the sum of the balance of trade (exports minus imports of goods and services), net factor income (such as interest and dividends) and net transfer payments (such as foreign aid). The current account is one of the three Balance of Payments sub-balances together with capital account and financial account. The Balance of Payments is the statistical statement that systematically summarizes, for a specific time period, the economic transactions of an economy with the rest of the world. Data are expressed in billion Euro.

The U.S. international transactions accounts are a quarterly statistical summary of transactions between U.S. and foreign residents organized into three broad categories. The three categories are the current account, the capital account, and the financial account. The current account includes imports and exports of goods, services, income, and current transfers. The capital account includes mainly debt forgiveness and transfers of goods and financial assets by migrants as they enter or leave the United States. The financial account includes transactions for direct investment, portfolio investment, other investment, and reserve assets. Coverage is complete for all individuals, businesses, and economic units, as well as for all major commodities and services. International transactions in goods are valued at market prices at the time they cross geographic boundaries (as a proxy for change in ownership) and all other transactions are valued at market prices at the time of change in ownership. Transactions in services are recorded when services are performed. Investment income receipts and payments are generally recorded on an accrual basis with offsets recorded in the financial account when necessary. Direct investment capital and income are valued on a current-cost (replacement-cost) basis.

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.

This survey presents estimates of monthly sales levels for wholesale merchants in Canada, each province and territory. This survey provides information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector and is an important indicator of the health of the Canadian economy. Wholesale sales in real terms are calculated by deflating current dollar values using import and industry product price indexes. As many of the goods sold by wholesalers are imported, fluctuations in the value of the Canadian dollar can have an important influence on the prices of goods bought and sold by wholesalers. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.

The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle. The leading, coincident, and lagging economic indexes are essentially composite averages of several individual leading, coincident, or lagging indicators. They are constructed to summarize and reveal common turning point patterns in economic data in a clearer and more convincing manner than any individual component - primarily because they smooth out some of the volatility of individual components. Historically, the cyclical turning points in the leading economic index have occurred before those in aggregate economic activity, while the cyclical turning points in the coincident economic index have occurred at about the same time as those in aggregate economic activity. The cyclical turning points in the lagging economic index generally have occurred after those in aggregate economic activity. Leading Economic Index includes the following indicators: Average weekly hours, manufacturing; Average weekly initial claims for unemployment insurance; Manufacturers' new orders, consumer goods and materials; Index of supplier deliveries – vendor performance; Manufacturers' new orders, nondefense capital goods; Building permits, new private housing units; Stock prices, 500 common stocks; Money supply, M2; Interest rate spread, 10-year Treasury bonds less federal funds; Index of consumer expectations. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
