The composite indexes are used to identify the volume of overall business activities by composing percentage changes of selected indicators. There are three types of composite indexes. The leading index, which tends to precede the coincident index by a few months. This is used to anticipate changes in the direction of the economy. The coincident index. This coincides with the business cycle. This is used to identify the current state of the economy. The lagging index. This tends to lag behind the coincident index by about six months. This is used to confirm turning points and business cycle phases. In general, increasing coincident index reflects that the economy is in an expansion phase, and decreasing coincident index reflects that the economy is in a contraction phase. The magnitude of the changes in the coincident index reflects the tempo of the expansion or contraction phases. Currently, the composite indexes use 29 series of indicators in total: 12 leading indicators, 11 coincident indicators, and six lagging indicators. The list of selected series of indicators is reviewed each time the economy goes through one complete cycle.

The production index measures the monthly performance of the industry in Germany. Due to its periodicity, its rapid availability and detailed breakdown by branches of economic activity, it is a central and up-to-date indicator of the development of business activity. Every month, the statistical offices of the Länder conduct a nationwide survey at local units of manufacturing with 50 employees or more. This survey collects quantity and value information on the monthly production of more than 6 000 industrial products. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Current Employment Statistics (CES) program, also known as the payroll survey or the establishment survey, is a monthly sample of nearly 400 000 business establishments nationwide. An establishment is an economic unit that produces goods or services, such as a factory, mine, or store. The survey series are estimates of nonfarm wage and salary jobs, not an estimate of employed persons; an individual with two jobs is counted twice by the payroll survey. The CES employment series excludes workers in agriculture and private households and the self-employed. Employment is the total number of persons employed full or part time in nonfarm establishments during a specified payroll period. Temporary employees are included. CES first preliminary estimates of employment, hours, and earnings are published each month approximately 3 weeks after the reference period. Estimates are then revised twice before being held constant until the annual benchmarking process. Second preliminary estimates for a given month are published the month following the initial release, and final sample-based estimates are published 2 months after the initial release.

People are classified as unemployed if they meet all of the following criteria: They had no employment during the reference week; they were available for work at that time; and they made specific efforts to find employment sometime during the 4-week period ending with the reference week. Persons laid off from a job and expecting recall need not be looking for work to be counted as unemployed. The unemployment data derived from the household survey in no way depend upon the eligibility for or receipt of unemployment insurance benefits. The civilian labour force is the sum of employed and unemployed persons. Those not classified as employed or unemployed are not in the labour force. The unemployment rate is the number unemployed as a percent of the labour force. The labour force participation rate is the labour force as a percent of the population, and the employment-population ratio is the employed as a percent of the population.

Average hourly earnings series, derived by dividing gross payrolls by total hours, reflect the actual earnings of workers, including premium pay. They differ from wage rates, which are the amounts stipulated for a given unit of work or time. Average hourly earnings do not represent total labour costs per hour for the employer, because they exclude retroactive payments and irregular bonuses, employee benefits, and the employer's share of payroll taxes. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
