The CPI is the main UK measure of inflation for macroeconomic purposes and forms the basis for the Government's inflation target. Each month around 120 000 separate price quotations are collected for around 650 items which make up the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) "basket" of goods and services.

The Retail Prices Index (RPI) is the most familiar general purpose domestic measure of inflation in the United Kingdom. It is commonly used in private contracts for uprating of maintenance payments and housing rents. It measures the average change from month to month in the prices of goods and services purchased by most households in the United Kingdom. The spending pattern on which the index is based is revised each year, mainly using information from the Expenditure and Food Survey. The index is compiled using a large and representative selection of around 650 separate goods and services for which price movements are regularly measured in around 150 147 areas throughout the United Kingdom. Around 120 000 separate price quotations are used each month in compiling the index, which is published each month.

Producer Price Index is a monthly survey that measures the price changes of goods bought and sold by UK manufacturers. A wide collection of representative products is selected and the prices of these fixed sets of goods are collected each month. The input price indices measure change in the prices of materials and fuels bought by UK manufacturers for processing. These are not limited to just those materials used in the final product, but also include what is required by the company in its normal day to day running. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

Statistics on housing units authorized by building permits include housing units issued in local permit-issuing jurisdictions by a building or zoning permit. Not all areas of the country require a building or zoning permit. The statistics only represent those areas that do require a permit. Current surveys indicate that construction is undertaken for all but a very small percentage of housing units authorized by building permits. A major portion typically get under way during the month of permit issuance and most of the remainder begin within the three following months. Because of this lag, the housing unit authorization statistics do not represent the number of units actually put into construction for the period shown, and should therefore not be directly interpreted as "housing starts".

The start of construction is when excavation begins for the footings or foundation of a building. All housing units in a multifamily building are defined as being started when excavation for the building has begun. Beginning with statistics for September 1992, estimates of housing starts include units in residential structures being totally rebuilt on an existing foundation. Housing starts are estimated for all areas of the United States, regardless of whether permits are required.

The 'repairs on goods' cover the amount of repair for movable goods, such as ships and aircraft, owned by residents (non-residents). The 'goods procured in ports by carriers' cover transactions involving fuels, food stuff, and other goods procured in Japan (abroad) by carriers (ships, aircraft) owned by non-residents (residents).

For short term indicators, the cycles that are relevant for the economic trends and which by definition have periodicities longer than one year, are generally affected by considerable short-term fluctuations (trend, economic fluctuations, seasonal fluctuations, calendar fluctuations, residual or irregular fluctuations). As a consequence, analysing the current business-cycle phase is quite difficult. To improve the accuracy of the economic trend analyses, it is common to apply mathematical filtering techniques to remove such fluctuations from the time series.

The Employment Change indicator is a measurement of new jobs created within the Australian economy throughout the previous month. Consumer spending is closely linked to the creation of new jobs, as those who are employed tend to spend more (and put more back into the economy) than those who are unemployed. Employment levels and the creation of new jobs will largely impact the strength of an economy, thus a rising trend seen in this indicator should positively impact a nation's currency.

A survey of the current state of the business sector in Australia. Based on a survey of 350 of small to large sized companies, the National Australia Bank delivers monthly and quarterly reports from statistical data. The companies are asked about forward orders, trading conditions, export sales, profits, capital spending and employment. A reading higher than zero indicates companies expecting their industry to improve outnumber those predicting a deterioration. The quarterly version tends to have more impact due to a larger sample size and additional questions regarding expectations.

The unemployed labour force is a key indicator of the size of unemployment. The unemployed labour force consists of people aged 15-64 years not working or working for less than twelve hours a week, who are actively looking for paid work for at least twelve hours a week, and who are directly available to start work. As of February 2003 Statistics Netherlands publishes three-month averages of the unemployed labour force based on the Labour Force Survey and the Labour accounts. Apart from the unemployed labour force Statistics Netherlands also calculates data on registered unemployment. The registered unemployed are people aged 16-64 years who do not work or work for less than twelve hours a week, who are registered at a job centre.
