In addition to the Consumer Price Index for Germany (CPI) and the Retail Prices Index, the Federal Statistical Office has calculated for European purposes a Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) for Germany since 1997. For the HICP, time series from January 1995 are available. The HICP 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. The HICP serves, among other things, to measure the convergence criterion of "price stability" as a basis for judging whether a Member State can participate in European economic and monetary union. The HICP is calculated for the Member States of the European Union (EU), Norway, Iceland and Switzerland. It is used to form aggregates for the euro zone (Monetary Union Index of Consumer Prices - MUICP), for the EU (European Index of Consumer Prices - EICP), and for the European Economic Area (European Economic Area Index of Consumer Prices - EEAICP). The European Central Bank makes use of the MUICP in the context of its monetary policy to judge price stability within the euro zone.

The Claimant Count is the UK's most timely measure of unemployment. The report measures the number of people who claim unemployment benefits, but actively seeking work. The Claimant Count serves as a barometer for the health of the UK labor market. Higher job growth accompanies economic expansion and could spark inflationary pressures.

The headline number is a percentage change in the figure.

The percentage of individuals in the labor force who are without a job but actively seeking one. A higher Unemployment Rate is generally a drain on the economy. Not only does it mean that resources are not being fully utilized, but it also results in lower consumer spending as there are fewer workers receiving paychecks.

Note: The unemployment rate generally moves slowly, so changes of only a few tenths of a percent are still considered significant. Also note that the unemployment rate does not account for discouraged workers. Therefore, in an economically depressed environment, such as that which occurred in Cold War era East Germany, the Unemployment Rate may not accurately reflect the extent of problems.

It's a leading indicator of consumer inflation - when businesses pay more for labor the higher costs are usually passed on to the consumer. Data represents the 3-month moving average compared to the same period a year earlier. A figure that excludes bonuses is also released, but not included for lack of significance.

CPI is the key gauge for inflation in the Eurozone. Inflation, simply put, is a decline in the purchasing power of the Euro, where each Euro buys fewer goods and services due to higher consumer prices. The index tracks changes in the price of a basket of goods and services that a typical household might purchase. When the CPI is high, it indicates that significant inflationary pressures exist in Eurozone economies. This puts pressure on the European Central Bank to raise interest rates. When CPI comes out lower than expected, the ECB is expected to lower interest rates, or keep them lower, to encourage economic growth. As a rule, the Bank adjusts rates in order to keep Europe consumer price inflation in the 0 to 2 percent range.
