The rate uses benchmark unemployment data compiled from the results of the annual household Employment Survey, updated using the changes in the monthly registered unemployment figures. From the first quarter of 2008 onwards, the wording of the question on the wish to work longer hours used for the calculation of under-employment, and the definition of under-employment have been amended to be closer to the ILO-concept. The Unemployment rate refers to the number of persons unemployed, according to ILO definitions, as a percentage of the total labour force.

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 flash PMI is the first economic indicators for each month, providing accurate evidence of changing economic conditions well ahead of comparable government statistics. 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 survey is compiled by Markit Economics in association with CDAF (www.cdaf.asso.fr). This is the preliminary estimate.

Markit Flash U.S. Manufacturing PMI. The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) is a composite index based on five of the individual indexes: New Orders, Output, Employment, Suppliers’ Delivery Times, Stocks of Items Purchased. Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease. The flash estimate is typically based on approximately 85%–90% of total PMI survey responses each month and is designed to provide an accurate advance indication of the final PMI data. Data are collected and published by Markit Economics (www.markiteconomics.com).

Estimates of new single-family houses sold and for sale are obtained from the Survey of Construction (SOC). SOC is comprised of two parts: (1) Survey of Use of Permits (SUP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that require a building permit and (2) Non-permit Survey (NP) which estimates the amount of new home sales in areas that do not require a building permit. A house is considered sold when either a sales contract has been signed or a deposit accepted. Included in the estimates are houses for which a sales contract is signed or deposit accepted before construction has actually started. The estimates also include houses sold while under construction or after completion. The survey does not follow through to the completion ('closing') of the sales transaction, so even if the transaction is not finalized, the house is still considered sold. A house is considered for sale when a permit to build has been issued in permit-issuing places or work has begun on the footings or foundation in nonpermit areas and a sales contract has not been signed nor a deposit accepted.
