The Consumer Barometer includes questions about certain economic matters. Individual indicators are based on the following questions: consumers' assessment of the development of the Finnish economy and their own economic situation as well as the development of consumer prices over the past and coming year; consumers' assessment of changes in unemployment over the next 12 months; consumers' assessment of how favourable the present time was for making major purchases, saving, or raising a loan; consumers' assessment of how much they would be spending on durable goods over the coming year, compared to the past year.

The monthly survey gives a picture of households' opinions on their economic environment and on some aspects of their personal economic circumstances. It provides information on consumer behaviour and expectations in regard to spending and saving. The survey monitors short-term phenomena such as prices, unemployment, and saving as they are perceived by households, independently of macroeconomic indicators. The summary indicator is the arithmetic mean of the following five indicators: living standards in France (past change / outlook); personal financial position (past change / outlook); timeliness of major purchases. For each question asked, s balance of opinion equal to the difference between the percentages of positive and negative responses is calculated. About 2 000 households are interviewed by telephone.

The index measures consumers' opinions by combining their answers to nine questions on the economic situation of the country, the economic situation of the family regarding employment, savings, purchase of durable goods and their financial situation. Data are first calculated as the percent balance of positive over negative answers. For the questions for which five answers are possible the extreme responses are double weighted. A simple arithmetic average of the answers is then computed. The indicator is presented as an index. The sample is selected from the population aged 18 years and over. Approximately 2000 persons are selected.

The Producer Price Index (PPI) of the Bureau of Labour Statistics (BLS) is a family of indexes that measure the average change over time in the prices received by domestic producers of goods and services. PPIs measure price change from the perspective of the seller. This contrasts with other measures, such as the Consumer Price Index (CPI). CPIs measure price change from the purchaser's perspective. Sellers' and purchasers' prices can differ due to government subsidies, sales and excise taxes, and distribution costs. More than 8 000 PPIs for individual products and groups of products are released each month. PPIs are based on selling prices reported by establishments of all sizes selected by probability sampling, with the probability of selection proportionate to size. Price data are provided on a voluntary and confidential basis. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
