Nationwide House Prices measure a change in value caused by inflation using a statistical method to construct an 'average house'. Using the vast majority of Nationwide's sample of mortgage data, the index calculates the price of the 'average house' from a set of features. The 'average house' represents the average price of a group of '100 properties', each with a set of 10 representative features (property type, whether it is new, region, neighbourhood characteristics at local and parliamentary constituency level, internal floor size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, type of garage, and central heating status). This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Producer Price Indices are business cycle indicators showing the monthly development of transaction prices of economic activities. They can be an early indicator of inflationary pressures in the economy, but also record the evolution of prices over longer periods of time. The total output price index is broken down into domestic output price index and non-domestic output price index. The domestic output price index for an economic activity measures the average price development of all goods and related services resulting from that activity and sold on the domestic market. The non-domestic price index shows the average price development (converted to local currency) of all goods and related services resulting from that activity and sold outside of the domestic market. When combined, these two indices show the average price development of all goods and related services resulting from an activity. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Record of the difference between exports of goods and services and imports of goods and services. In the broad sense, this balance is conceptually equal to net exports of goods and services, which is a component of gross domestic product (GDP). Exports are compiled from Shippers' Export Declarations. Imports are compiled from the US Custom Services' Automated Commercial System (ACS). Data refer to general trade and exclude transactions with the US military stationed abroad. Exports include exports of US merchandise plus re-exports of foreign merchandise and exclude in-transit shipments and low value non-commercial shipments. Exports are valued on a f.a.s. basis (free along side). Imports include both entries for immediate consumption and entries into bonded warehouses. Reimports are included and attributed to the country of exportation. Imports are valued on a c.i.f. basis (cost, insurance, freight). Imports are reported in US dollars with an exchange rate given by the US Custom Service. The geographic area covered is the United States Customs area (includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico), the US Virgin Islands and US Foreign Trade Zones.

Durable Goods Orders ex Defense. The Durable Goods Orders figure is also reported excluding defense expenditures. Orders for items like civilian vehicles or aircrafts are fairly expensive and fluctuate idiosyncratically, distorting the Durable Goods Orders figure. Such goods are excluded to provide a better measure of durable goods orders. The defense industry categories should include sales, inventories, and orders relating to foreign government contracted through the Department of Defense (Foreign Military Assistance Program). Also include subcontracts with other companies where the prime contract is known to be with the Department of Defense.

The Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) survey provides broad-based, monthly statistical data on economic conditions in the domestic manufacturing sector. The survey measures current industrial activity and provides an indication of future business trends. There are 89 separately tabulated industry categories in the M3 survey. These categories are groupings of the 473 manufacturing industries. New orders, as reported in the monthly survey, are net of order cancellations and include orders received and filled during the month as well as orders received for future delivery. They also include the value of contract changes which increase or decrease the value of the unfilled orders to which they relate. Orders are defined to include those supported by binding legal documents such as signed contracts, letters of award, or letters of intent, although in some industries this definition may not be strictly applicable. In the case of letters of intent, the full amount of the sales value is included if the parties are in substantial agreement on the amount; otherwise, only the funds specifically authorized to be expended are included.

The survey is provided by Australian Industry Group (AIG). AI Group's leading economists monitor the performance of Australia's manufacturing, services and construction sectors, provide economic forecasts and assessments of industry sectors, as well as a range of issue specific reports and surveys. The Australian Performance of Construction Index (Australian PCI) is a seasonally adjusted national composite index based on the diffusion indexes for sales, new orders, employment, inventories and deliveries all with varying weights. An Australian PCI® reading above 50 points indicates that the service industry is generally expanding, below 50 that it is declining. The distance from 50 is indicative of the strength of the expansion or decline.

This indicator measures the total sales of goods and services made by retail stores in Australia. Because a large portion of consumer spending is accounted for in this indicator, it gives a good look at the consumer spending situation, which will account for approximately half of GDP (Gross Domestic Product). This is the percent change from the previous month.
