The Swedish National Labour Market Board - AMS (Arbetsmarknadsverket) is the central administrative body for general labour market matters and the authority responsible for the County Labour Boards (Lan). AMS directs, co-ordinates and develops labour market policy activities in Sweden. An unemployed person is defined as someone without employment who has registered as seeking work with the AMS and is both willing and able to work. Data refer to insured unemployed people registered at the employment services, who are receiving unemployment benefit. The AMS statistics do not include the number of people on sick pensions and long-term sick leave. Nor do they include people who are studying but who would prefer to be in work.

This indicator represents the difference (in EUR) in value between imported and exported goods and services during the reported month; This is the largest component of a country's balance of payments. When a country's exports are greater than their imports, a Trade Surplus exists. Similarly, when imports are greater than exports, a Trade Deficit exists. Countries with a severe imbalance are not self-sufficient, either because they rely heavily on foreign markets to purchase their goods (in the case of a Surplus) or because they don't produce enough goods internally to meet demand (in the case of a Deficit).

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.

Also included are persons waiting to begin a job starting within three months. Data from 1976 include students who comply with ILO unemployment criteria. As from October 2007, the Swedish Labour Force Survey unemployment criteria also include students looking for job. The rate is calculated as the unemployed as a percentage of total labour force. Total labour force equals the employed plus the unemployed as defined in the labour force survey.

The aim of the Swiss National Bank (SNB)'s monetary policy is to ensure price stability in the medium and long term. The monetary policy strategy consists of the following three elements: a definition of price stability, a medium-term inflation forecast and a target range for a reference interest rate, the three-month Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) for Swiss francs. To secure price stability, the SNB provides appropriate monetary conditions. If interest rates remain too low for a lengthy period, the supply of money and credit to the economy is too high, thus triggering an inordinate demand for goods and services. Although this boosts production initially, bottlenecks occur in the course of time and overall production capacity is stretched, thus causing a rise in the level of prices. Conversely, if interest rates are too high for a lengthy period, this reduces the supply of money and credit to the economy. This has a dampening effect on the prices of goods and services. The SNB equates price stability with a rise in the national consumer price index (CPI) of less than 2% per annum. The SNB implements its monetary policy by fixing a target range for the three-month Swiss franc Libor. As a rule, this target range extends over one percentage point, and the SNB generally aims to keep the Libor in the middle of the range. Four times a year, in March, June, September and December, the SNB's Governing Board conducts an assessment of the monetary policy situation. Each of these in-depth assessments results in an interest rate decision. In addition, if circumstances so require, the Governing Board also adjusts the target range for the three-month Libor in Swiss francs between regular assessment dates.

Norges Bank is Norway's central bank. Norges Bank has executive and advisory responsibilities in the area of monetary policy and is responsible for promoting robust and efficient payment systems and financial markets. The operational target of monetary policy is the annual consumer price inflation to be close to 2.5 per cent over time. Monetary policy also contributes to stabilizing output and employment. Norges Bank's most important monetary policy instrument is the key policy rate, which is the interest rate on banks deposits in Norges Bank. The key rate influences short-term money market rates. The key rate and expectations concerning future developments in the key rate are decisive for banks' deposit and lending rates and for bond yields. Norges Bank's Executive Board sets the key rate. The Executive Board is appointed by the King in Council, and is made up of the Governor, the Deputy Governor and five external members. The Executive Board functions as a unified group and the members are collectively responsible for the Bank's decisions. On the basis of the analysis and discussion, the Executive Board assesses the consequences for future interest rate developments and adopts a monetary policy strategy, including alternative strategies. The decision to adopt a monetary policy strategy is made on the same day as the report is published.

The producer price index relates to goods produced and sold on the domestic market or exported by enterprises based in Switzerland. Goods include primary products (raw materials), semi-finished goods and finished goods. The prices are output prices measured at the first stage of marketing of the product, on an f.o.b. factory or farm basis and are net of discounts and V.A.T. but include indirect taxes. The import price index has a methodologically similar structure as the producer price index and measures the price of imported products (ex-customs prices, excluding VAT). The figure represents changes in the combined producer and import price index (the price index of total supply) calculated as a summation of the producer price index and import price index. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

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.

Import Price Index measures the change over time in the prices of goods or services purchased from abroad by U.S. residents. Import prices are based on U.S. dollar prices paid by the U.S. importer. The prices are generally either 'free on board' (f.o.b.) foreign port or 'cost, insurance, and freight' (c.i.f.) U.S. port transaction prices, depending on the practices of the individual industry. The index for crude petroleum is calculated from data collected by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Indexes are also a valuable input into the processes of measuring inflation, formulating fiscal and monetary policy, forecasting future prices, conducting elasticity studies, measuring U.S. industrial competitiveness and analysing exchange rates. All goods are included except for military goods, works of art, used items, charity donations, rail road equipment, items leased for less than a year and rebuilt and repaired items. Covered services are air freight and air passenger fares. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
