GDP, gross domestic product at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units. It can be defined in three ways: as the sum of gross value added of the various institutional sectors or the various industries plus taxes and less subsidies on products; as the sum of final uses of goods and services by resident institutional units (final consumption, gross capital formation, exports minus imports); as the sum of uses in the total economy generation of income account (compensation of employees, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, gross operating surplus and gross mixed income). This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.

The index of selling prices in wholesale trade measures - on a representative basis - the development of prices of goods sold by wholesalers within Germany to the extent that such sales are included under wholesale, such as contracts concluded with resellers, processors or other bulk purchasers. The index combines the price developments for goods produced within the country and for those imported. Excluded are sales from producers direct to retailers or ultimate consumers. The reference value of the overall index is the total of all turnovers of wholesale trade in the base year, less retail sales and other sales not belonging to wholesale trade, and less export values. In this way, turnovers between wholesale businesses are also covered by price statistics. Around 1 030 reporting units (usually wholesale businesses) are asked for the selling prices of a total of 406 representatively selected kinds of goods. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.

The Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices is used to measure inflation in the context of international, mostly inner-European comparisons. Its calculation, which relies on Harmonised concepts, methods and procedures, reflects the development of prices in the individual states based on national consumption patterns. In particular, the prices collected for the German consumer price index are also used to calculate the German Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices. The difference in coverage between the German price index for Germany and the German Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices consists mainly in the additional inclusion of owner-occupied residential property and motor vehicle tax in the German price index for Germany. This is the final percentage change, compared with the previous month.

A government budget is a legal document that is often passed by the legislature, and approved by the chief executive-or president. For example, only certain types of revenue may be imposed and collected. Property tax is frequently the basis for municipal and county revenues, while sales tax and/or income tax are the basis for state revenues, and income tax and corporate tax are the basis for national revenues. The two basic elements of any budget are the revenues and expenses. In the case of the government, revenues are derived primarily from taxes. Government expenses include spending on current goods and services, which economists call government consumption; government investment expenditures such as infrastructure investment or research expenditure; and transfer payments like unemployment or retirement benefits.
