The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is the most common measure of changes in prices. It is used as a measure of inflation and in negotiations. When using the CPI for negotiations, the index itself is usually used, and not the inflation rate. The CPI shows the development of average consumer prices for all private domestic consumption. The prices that are measured are those that the consumers actually pay and are thus affected by changes in value-added taxes and subsidies. Direct taxes and social benefits are not considered when the index is calculated. Since it is difficult in practice to measure prices for all goods and services that are consumed, prices are collected for a representative basket of goods and services, called representative products. The relative importance of different representative products is given using weights. These weights show how large of a share, in terms of value, the different chosen products have of the total private domestic consumption. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Bureau of Labour Statistics also calculates and publishes indexes for special aggregations, such as energy items, that cut across the above classification scheme. The series All items less food and energy sometimes is said to measure the core rate of inflation. Food and energy are two of the most volatile components of the CPI (Consumer Price Index). For this reason, many analysts regard the measure of core inflation as more useful for their purposes. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The CPI (Consumer Price Index) provides an estimate of the price change between any two periods. The CPI follows the prices of a sample of items in various categories of consumer spending - such as food, clothing, shelter, and medical services - that people buy for day-to-day living. The CPI covers the consumption sector of the U.S. economy. Consequently, it excludes investment items, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and business expenses. Life insurance also is excluded for this reason, although health, household, and vehicle insurance are in scope. Purchases of houses, antiques, and collectibles are viewed as investment expenditures and therefore excluded. In the CPI, the urban portion of the United States is divided into 38 geographic areas called index areas, and the set of all goods and services purchased by consumers is divided into 211 categories called item strata. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The industrial capacity utilization rate is the ratio of an industry's actual output to its estimated potential output.

Quarterly Gross Domestic Product by industry (GDP) is used as the measure of actual output.

The term 'monetary policy' refers to the actions undertaken by a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve, to influence the availability and cost of money and credit to help promote national economic goals. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 gave the Federal Reserve responsibility for setting monetary policy. The Federal Reserve controls the three tools of monetary policy - open market operations, the discount rate, and reserve requirements. The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is responsible for the discount rate (the interest rate charged to commercial banks and other depository institutions on loans they receive from their regional Federal Reserve Bank's lending facility) and reserve requirements (the amount of funds that a depository institution must hold in reserve against specified deposit liabilities), and the Federal Open Market Committee is responsible for open market operations (purchases and sales of U.S. Treasury and federal agency securities). Using the three tools, the Federal Reserve influences the demand for, and supply of, balances that depository institutions hold at Federal Reserve Banks and in this way alters the federal funds rate. The federal funds rate is the interest rate at which depository institutions lend balances at the Federal Reserve to other depository institutions overnight. Changes in the federal funds rate trigger a chain of events that affect other short-term interest rates, foreign exchange rates, long-term interest rates, the amount of money and credit, and, ultimately, a range of economic variables, including employment, output, and prices of goods and services. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) consists of twelve members. The FOMC holds eight regularly scheduled meetings per year. At these meetings, the Committee reviews economic and financial conditions, determines the appropriate stance of monetary policy, and assesses the risks to its long-run goals of price stability and sustainable economic growth.
