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 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 Price indices in Producer and Import stages aim to show the average change in prices in producer and import stages for different industries and product groups i.e. in the first distribution stage when goods are delivered from Swedish producers or come into Sweden. Goods are classified into three groups, namely: Swedish produced goods for the domestic market, Swedish produced exported goods, Imported goods. The items are classified according to an international nomenclature consisting of around 6 800 items. The main variable is the producer price which is the price a production unit obtains when selling in the first phase. The price refers to ex works for the Swedish market and fob (free on board) for exports. For imports the price is cif (cost, insurance, freight). The price should be the average invoiced price over a month. Value added taxes and other taxes on goods are not included. However, for the index series for petroleum products, environmental and energy taxes are added to the price. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Manufacturing Index is a gauge of broad activity in the District's manufacturing sector. It is a composite index representing a weighted average of the shipments (33 percent), new orders (40 percent) and employment (27 percent) indexes. Zero acts as the breakpoint. All firms surveyed are located within the Fifth Federal Reserve District, which includes the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and most of West Virginia. Each month, the Survey of Manufacturing Activity is sent electronically or by mail to about 220 contacts whose firm type, firm size and location collectively match the profile of overall manufacturing in the District. Respondents provide information on current activity, including shipments, new orders, order backlogs, and inventories. In addition, manufacturers inform us about employment conditions, prices and their expectations of business activity for the next six months.
