The index represents the value of new orders for construction work received during the month by 50 major constructors. Figures refer to the value of original contracts and construction for own use but not the value of subcontracted orders. Data refer to construction of Buildings and Dwellings. Both public and private new orders are covered by the survey. The survey is compiled from the results of the Survey of Construction Orders Received which is a postal survey directly conducted by the Ministry of Construction. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

These statistics provide one of the representative indices for following trends in housing investment and summarises the number of housing starts at different time points, moreover the statistics have different categories of housing covering owner-occupied relationship such as possessed house, house for rent, subjects of investors, structures, and regions. There are two types of construction: 1: New dwelling construction. In new dwelling construction, new dwelling (including those rebuilt on new premises or new sections of a dwelling) is built by new construction, addition or renovation. 2: Others. These are cases when a new section of a dwelling is not built by addition or renovation. In relation to fluctuations in the economy, it is considered that rising housing starts are a precursor to a rise in the economy.

Producer price index for the export markets shows the evolution of transaction prices of industrial goods sold to foreign markets, converted into Euro Free On Board (FOB). The combination of both indices constitutes the industrial product price index (French and external markets). The index is based on the monthly prices (or quarterly prices in certain industries) of 26 000 products gathered from a representative sample of 3 900 enterprises responding to the mandatory survey. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Federal Employment Agency, counts persons as job-seekers who are registered as unemployed with the employment agencies, are temporarily without a job or perform just a marginal part-time work (i.e. a work regularly comprising less than 15 hours per week). Also, the job-seeker must be available for placement efforts of the employment agency, he/she must not be incapable for work due to sickness, must not have completed 65 years and must look for a job subject to social insurance contributions and comprising at least 15 hours per week. In turn, the statistics of the Federal Employment Agency counts persons as registered unemployed who are not unemployed according to the definitions of the ILO labour market statistics. This refers in particular to registered unemployed performing a marginal part-time work to the extent permitted, and persons who actually do not look for work although they are formally registered unemployed.

The monthly Index of Services (IoS) shows the monthly movements in gross value added for the service industries. Service industries overall account for around 75 per cent of UK Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and includes private sector and government services. Gross value added (GVA) is an important element in measuring the economy. GVA for the service industries is the difference between the value of a service provided (output), and the value of the goods and services used up in providing that service (intermediate consumption). The IoS shows how this difference in value changes from month to month.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by industry at basic prices is a measure of the economic production which takes place within the geographical boundaries of Canada. The term 'gross' in GDP means that capital consumption costs, that is the costs associated with the depreciation of capital assets (buildings, machinery and equipment), are included. The production estimates are prepared for 215 separate industries using the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). The GDP by industry measures provide an alternate measure of total economic activity that supplements the income and expenditure-based estimates prepared by Income and Expenditure Accounts Division, and constitute an extension (on a monthly basis) of the System of National Accounts Input-Output Tables.

The Raw Materials Price Index (RMPI) measures price changes for raw materials purchased by industries in Canada for further processing. As a purchasers' price index, prices include all charges purchasers incur to bring a commodity to the establishment gate. Thus transportation charges, net taxes paid, and custom duties are all included, as well as the effects of subsidies, if any are paid to the purchaser. The index provides the movement in prices for a group of major inputs into goods produced in Canada. It helps cover the spectrum of price changes in the Canadian economy, and is valuable directly and in relation to the price movements of products derived in part from these materials. The RMPI basket weights are generally updated every five years. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Industrial Product Price Index (IPPI) reflects the prices that producers in Canada receive as the goods leave the plant gate. It does not reflect what the consumer pays. Unlike the Consumer Price Index, the IPPI excludes indirect taxes and all the costs that occur between the time a good leaves the plant and the time the final user takes possession of it, including the transportation, wholesale, and retail costs. Many prices collected to calculate the IPPI are quoted in US dollars and then converted into Canadian dollars. Therefore, a rise or fall in the value of the Canadian dollar against its US counterpart affects the IPPI. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The ISM-Chicago Monthly Business Survey consists of seven Business Activity series (+, same, –; raw and seasonally adjusted indexes): Production; New Orders; Order Backlog; Employment; Inventories; Prices Paid and Supplier Deliveries. Each series represents the level of activity (for the proportion of the survey responding) compared to the prior month.

Based on the size of capital, enterprises are categorized into large enterprises (capital with 1 billion yen and more), medium-sized enterprises (capital with 100 million yen to less than 1 billion yen), and small enterprises (capital with 20 million yen to less than 100 million yen). Survey items consist of four groups: (1) 'Judgement survey;' (2) 'Quarterly data;' (3) 'Annual projections;' and (4) 'Number of new graduates hired (surveyed only in June and December).' For example, 'Business Conditions' is calculated by subtracting the percentage share of enterprises responding “Unfavorable' from that of ' Favorable'.

The HSBC China Report on Manufacturing is based on data from questionnaires to purchasing executives at over 420 manufacturing companies. The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) is a composite index based on five components: New Orders, Output, Employment, Suppliers’ Delivery Times, Stocks of Items Purchased. For each one, the ‘Report’ shows the percentage reporting each response, the net difference between positive and negative responses, and the ‘diffusion’ index (the sum of the positive responses plus a half of those responding ‘the same’). Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change, with readings over 50 indicating an overall increase in the variable.

The Nomura/JMMA Japan Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) is compiled by Markit Economics in association with Nomura (www.nomura.co.jp) and JMMA - Japan Materials Management Association ( www.jmma.gr.jp). Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) is based on monthly questionnaire surveys of carefully selected companies which provide an advance indication of what is really happening in the private sector economy by tracking changes in variables such as output, new orders, stock levels, employment and prices across the manufacturing sector. The index is presented as an index with a value between 1-100. Values above 50 indicate that the economic outlook is positive. Alternately, readings below 50 mean future outlook is less favourable. The final manufacturing PMI follows on from the flash estimate which is released a week earlier.
