The primary objective of the European Central Bank's monetary policy is to maintain price stability. The ECB aims at inflation rates of below, but close to, 2% over the medium term. The natural role of monetary policy in the economy is to maintain price stability. Monetary policy can affect real activity only in the shorter term. The central bank is the sole issuer of banknotes and bank reserves. That means it is the monopoly supplier of the monetary base. By virtue of this monopoly, it can set the conditions at which banks borrow from the central bank. Therefore it can also influence the conditions at which banks trade with each other in the money market. The central bank provides funds to the banking system and charges interest. Given its monopoly power over the issuing of money, the central bank can fully determine this interest rate. The change in the official interest rates affects directly money-market interest rates and, indirectly, lending and deposit rates, which are set by banks to their customers.

The Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) is a monthly index designed to gauge overall economic activity and related inflationary pressure. The CFNAI is a weighted average of 85 existing monthly indicators of national economic activity. It is constructed to have an average value of zero and a standard deviation of one. Since economic activity tends toward trend growth rate over time, a positive index reading corresponds to growth above trend and a negative index reading corresponds to growth below trend.

The New Housing Price Index (NHPI) is a monthly series that measures changes over time in the contractors' selling prices of new residential houses, where detailed specifications pertaining to each house remain the same between two consecutive periods. The survey also collects contractors' estimates of the current value (evaluated at market price) of the land. These estimates are independently indexed to provide the published series for land. The residual, (total selling price less land value), which mainly relates to the current cost of the structure is also independently indexed and is presented as the estimated house series.

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.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is calculated to measure the average price movements of goods and services purchased by households throughout the country. It reflects changes of the cost of purchasing goods and services in a fixed “market basket”, but is not designed to measure changes of the cost of living attributed to the changes of types, quality and quantity of goods and services consumers purchase. expenditures other than the living expenditure (e.g., direct taxes, social insurance premiums, security purchases, land and housing purchases) are not included in the scope of the CPI. The index figures of the preceding month for the whole country, and the preliminary figures of the current month for the Ku-area of Tokyo are released. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.
