The unemployed labour force is a key indicator of the size of unemployment. The unemployed labour force consists of people aged 15-64 years not working or working for less than twelve hours a week, who are actively looking for paid work for at least twelve hours a week, and who are directly available to start work. As of February 2003 Statistics Netherlands publishes three-month averages of the unemployed labour force based on the Labour Force Survey and the Labour accounts. Apart from the unemployed labour force Statistics Netherlands also calculates data on registered unemployment. The registered unemployed are people aged 16-64 years who do not work or work for less than twelve hours a week, who are registered at a job centre.

The start of construction is when excavation begins for the footings or foundation of a building. All housing units in a multifamily building are defined as being started when excavation for the building has begun. Beginning with statistics for September 1992, estimates of housing starts include units in residential structures being totally rebuilt on an existing foundation. Housing starts are estimated for all areas of the United States, regardless of whether permits are required.

Statistics on housing units authorized by building permits include housing units issued in local permit-issuing jurisdictions by a building or zoning permit. Not all areas of the country require a building or zoning permit. The statistics only represent those areas that do require a permit. Current surveys indicate that construction is undertaken for all but a very small percentage of housing units authorized by building permits. A major portion typically get under way during the month of permit issuance and most of the remainder begin within the three following months. Because of this lag, the housing unit authorization statistics do not represent the number of units actually put into construction for the period shown, and should therefore not be directly interpreted as "housing starts".

Initial Jobless Claims is a report issued by the U.S. Department of Labour on a weekly basis. 'Initial Claim' means any notice of unemployment filed to request a determination of entitlement to and eligibility for compensation or a second or subsequent period of unemployment with a benefit year or period of eligibility. This report tracks how many claims have been registered for the previous week. It is a good gauge of the U.S. job market.

The survey has been conducted each month since May 1968. Results are calculated as the difference between percentage of positive and negative scores; zero acts as the breakpoint.
