Companies in retail trade sell goods produced elsewhere directly to households and individuals. There are annual and monthly figures on turnover, prices and volume; and also figures on operating costs and revenues, and on employment and wages in the retail trade. The retail trade is divided into shops selling food products, shops selling non-food products, and trade through channels other than shops (e.g. market trade, trade via the Internet and mail order companies).

Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) is based on monthly questionnaire surveys of carefully selected companies which provide an advance indication of what is really happening in the private sector economy by tracking changes in variables such as output, new orders, stock levels, employment and prices across the manufacturing sector. The flash PMI is the first economic indicators for each month, providing accurate evidence of changing economic conditions well ahead of comparable government statistics. The index is presented as an index with a value between 1-100. Values above 50 indicate that the economic outlook is positive. Alternately, readings below 50 mean future outlook is less favourable. The survey is compiled by Markit Economics in association with CDAF (www.cdaf.asso.fr). This is the preliminary estimate.

Sales include merchandise sold (for cash or credit at retail or wholesale) by establishments primarily engaged in retail trade. Services that are incidental to the sale of merchandise, and excise taxes that are paid by the manufacturer or wholesaler and passed along to the retailer are also included. Sales are net, after deductions, for refunds and allowances for merchandise returned by customers. Sales exclude sales taxes collected directly from customers and paid directly to a local, state, or federal tax agency. The estimates of sales measure the operations receipts rendered by stores that primarily sell at retail. The sales estimates represent total sales and receipts of all establishments primarily engaged in retail trade. They do not include sales at retail by manufacturers, wholesalers, service establishments, and others whose primary activity is other than retail trade. Because the retail establishment is the basic unit of measure, the published estimates of sales by type of retail store are not intended to measure the total sales for a given commodity or merchandise line. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The Federal Reserve Board constructs estimates of capacity and capacity utilization for industries in manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities. For a given industry, the capacity utilization rate is equal to an output index (seasonally adjusted) divided by a capacity index. The Federal Reserve Board's capacity indexes attempt to capture the concept of sustainable maximum output - the greatest level of output a plant can maintain within the framework of a realistic work schedule, after factoring in normal downtime and assuming sufficient availability of inputs to operate the capital in place.

The industrial production (IP) index measures the real output of the manufacturing, mining, and electric and gas utilities industries. Manufacturing consists of those industries included in the North American Industry Classification System, or NAICS, definition of manufacturing plus those industries that have traditionally been considered to be manufacturing and included in the industrial sector. The total IP index has been constructed from 303 individual series based on the 2002 North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes.

Markit Flash U.S. Manufacturing PMI. The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) is a composite index based on five of the individual indexes: New Orders, Output, Employment, Suppliers’ Delivery Times, Stocks of Items Purchased. Diffusion indexes have the properties of leading indicators and are convenient summary measures showing the prevailing direction of change. An index reading above 50 indicates an overall increase in that variable, below 50 an overall decrease. The flash estimate is typically based on approximately 85%–90% of total PMI survey responses each month and is designed to provide an accurate advance indication of the final PMI data. Data are collected and published by Markit Economics (www.markiteconomics.com).

Index represents the change in the total value of goods held in inventory by manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers. The Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) survey provides broad-based, monthly statistical data on economic conditions in the domestic manufacturing sector. The survey measures current industrial activity and provides an indication of future business trends. There are 89 separately tabulated industry categories in the M3 survey. These categories are groupings of the 473 manufacturing industries. Inventories in the M3 survey are collected on a current cost or pre-LIFO (last in, first out) basis. Inventory data are requested from respondents by stage of fabrication; that is, finished goods, work in process, and raw materials and supplies.
