The Consumer Barometer includes questions about certain economic matters. Individual indicators are based on the following questions: consumers' assessment of the development of the Finnish economy and their own economic situation as well as the development of consumer prices over the past and coming year; consumers' assessment of changes in unemployment over the next 12 months; consumers' assessment of how favourable the present time was for making major purchases, saving, or raising a loan; consumers' assessment of how much they would be spending on durable goods over the coming year, compared to the past year.

The monthly survey gives a picture of households' opinions on their economic environment and on some aspects of their personal economic circumstances. It provides information on consumer behaviour and expectations in regard to spending and saving. The survey monitors short-term phenomena such as prices, unemployment, and saving as they are perceived by households, independently of macroeconomic indicators. The summary indicator is the arithmetic mean of the following five indicators: living standards in France (past change / outlook); personal financial position (past change / outlook); timeliness of major purchases. For each question asked, s balance of opinion equal to the difference between the percentages of positive and negative responses is calculated. About 2 000 households are interviewed by telephone.

The index measures consumers' opinions by combining their answers to nine questions on the economic situation of the country, the economic situation of the family regarding employment, savings, purchase of durable goods and their financial situation. Data are first calculated as the percent balance of positive over negative answers. For the questions for which five answers are possible the extreme responses are double weighted. A simple arithmetic average of the answers is then computed. The indicator is presented as an index. The sample is selected from the population aged 18 years and over. Approximately 2000 persons are selected.

Consumer confidence surveys measure individual households' level of confidence in the economy's performance. The Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers are monthly surveys of consumer attitudes and expectations about the U.S. economy. They provide a gauge of consumer anticipation of changes in the economic environment. One part of the surveys - the Index of Consumer Expectations - is an official component of the U.S. Index of Leading Economic Indicators. The monthly Survey of Consumers is a nationally representative survey based on approximately 500 telephone interviews with adult men and women living in households in the co-terminous United States (48 states plus the District of Columbia). For each monthly sample, an independent cross-section sample of households is drawn. The respondents chosen in this drawing are then re-interviewed six months later. A rotating panel design results, and the total sample for any one survey is normally made up of 60 percent new respondents and 40 percent being interviewed for the second time. This is the final estimate.

Gross domestic product (GDP), the featured measure of U.S. output, is the market value of the goods and services produced by labour and property located in the United States, regardless of nationality. GDP is measured as the sum of personal consumption expenditures, gross private domestic investment, net exports of goods and services (exports less imports), and government consumption expenditures and gross investment. GDP excludes intermediate purchases of goods and services by business. Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) measures goods and services purchased by U.S. residents. Gross private domestic investment consists of fixed investment and the change in private inventories. Fixed investment consists of both non-residential fixed investment and residential fixed investment. Government consumption expenditures and gross investment, the measure of government sector final demand, consists of two major components: Current consumption expenditures by general government and gross investment by both general government and government enterprises. There are 3 versions of GDP released a month apart - Advance, Preliminary, and Final. This is the preliminary release. Quarterly estimates are expressed at seasonally adjusted annual rates.

GDP deflator (implicit price deflator for GDP) represents the relationship between the prices that are received by U.S. producers for exports of goods and services and the prices that are paid by U.S. purchasers for imports of goods and services. The GDP deflator measures the ratio of nominal (or current-price) GDP to the real (or chain volume) measure of GDP. Changes in the terms of trade reflect the interaction of several factors - including movements in exchange rates, changes in the composition of trade goods and services, and changes in producers' profit margins. This is the preliminary release.
