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.

The HPI is a broad measure of the movement of single-family house prices. The HPI is a weighted, repeat-sales index, meaning that it measures average price changes in repeat sales or refinancing on the same properties. This information is obtained by reviewing repeat mortgage transactions on single-family properties whose mortgages have been purchased or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac since January 1975. This is the percentage change compared with the previous quarter.

Monetary policy has a significant influence on the daily lives of the public, and thus the Bank should seek to clarify to the public the content of its decisions, as well as its decision-making processes, regarding monetary policy. In view of this, the Bank immediately releases its decisions on monetary policy, such as the guideline for money market operations and its views on economic and financial developments, after each MPM. In addition, regular press conferences by the chairman of the Policy Board - the Governor - are held to explain details of the monetary policy decisions. The Bank also releases the minutes of the MPMs, and releases their transcripts ten years later, to clarify points discussed by the Policy Board in the process of reaching decisions.
