Employed is defined as persons with income from work. Unemployed is defined as persons with no income-earning work, but who are seeking work and can start working immediately. The percentage is calculated from the labour force. Labour force is the total of the employed and unemployed. There are two measurements of unemployment in Norway: Figures for registered unemployment at the Directorate Of Labour and Statistics Norway's figures based on the Labour Force Survey. The difference between the figures is that the survey includes unemployed persons who do not register with the employment service and some of those on labour market measures.

The Price indices in Producer and Import stages aim to show the average change in prices in producer and import stages for different industries and product groups i.e. in the first distribution stage when goods are delivered from Swedish producers or come into Sweden. Goods are classified into three groups, namely: Swedish produced goods for the domestic market, Swedish produced exported goods, Imported goods. The items are classified according to an international nomenclature consisting of around 6 800 items. The main variable is the producer price which is the price a production unit obtains when selling in the first phase. The price refers to ex works for the Swedish market and fob (free on board) for exports. For imports the price is cif (cost, insurance, freight). The price should be the average invoiced price over a month. Value added taxes and other taxes on goods are not included. However, for the index series for petroleum products, environmental and energy taxes are added to the price. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Ifo Business Climate Index is based on Ca. 7 000 monthly survey responses of firms in manufacturing, construction, wholesaling and retailing. The firms are asked to give their assessments of the current business situation and their expectations for the next six months. They can characterize their situation as “good”, “satisfactorily” or “poor” and their business expectations for the next six months as “more favourable”, “unchanged” or “more unfavourable”. The balance value of the current business situation is the difference of the percentages of the responses “good” and “poor”, the balance value of the expectations is the difference of the percentages of the responses “more favourable” and “more unfavourable”. The business climate is a transformed mean of the balances of the business situation and the expectations. The index uses 100 as a centreline between positive and negative outlooks. The further the value is from 100 the stronger the sentiment.

The primary objective of the European Central Bank's monetary policy is to maintain price stability. The ECB aims at inflation rates of below, but close to, 2% over the medium term. The natural role of monetary policy in the economy is to maintain price stability. Monetary policy can affect real activity only in the shorter term. The central bank is the sole issuer of banknotes and bank reserves. That means it is the monopoly supplier of the monetary base. By virtue of this monopoly, it can set the conditions at which banks borrow from the central bank. Therefore it can also influence the conditions at which banks trade with each other in the money market. The central bank provides funds to the banking system and charges interest. Given its monopoly power over the issuing of money, the central bank can fully determine this interest rate. The change in the official interest rates affects directly money-market interest rates and, indirectly, lending and deposit rates, which are set by banks to their customers.

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 Wholesale Trade sector comprises establishments engaged in wholesaling merchandise, generally without transformation, and rendering services incidental to the sale of merchandise. The merchandise described in this sector includes the outputs of agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and certain information industries, such as publishing. The wholesaling process is an intermediate step in the distribution of merchandise. Wholesalers are organized to sell or arrange the purchase or sale of goods for resale (i.e., goods sold to other wholesalers or retailers), capital or durable non consumer goods, and raw and intermediate materials and supplies used in production. The index measures the change in the total value of goods held in inventory by wholesalers compared with the previous month.

The index figures of the preceding month for the whole country, and the preliminary figures of the current month for the Ku-area of Tokyo are released.
