French quarterly national accountants compile both transactions in goods and services and distributive transactions and ensure their consistency. From the expenditure side, GDP can be measured as follows: GDP = private final consumption expenditure + government final consumption expenditure + gross fixed capital formation + changes in inventories+ acquisition less disposal of valuables + exports - imports. The accounts for each quarter are released in three publications. The first, entitled 'advance estimate', is released 42 or 43 days after the end of the quarter and gives an estimation of the quarterly growth of gross domestic product (GDP) at 1995 prices, working-day and seasonally adjusted. The second, entitled 'preliminary figures', is issued 50 days after the end of the quarter. It provides an early estimate of transactions in goods and services (trade, output, final consumption, gross fixed capital formation, changes in inventories) working-day and seasonally adjusted, broken down into 16 industries or products. The last publication, called 'detailed figures', is released 90 days after the end of the quarter - and provides full information on transactions in goods and services, and on the accounts for households and enterprises, working-day and seasonally adjusted.

The monthly survey gives a picture of households' opinions on their economic environment and on some aspects of their personal economic circumstances. It provides information on consumer behaviour and expectations in regard to spending and saving. The survey monitors short-term phenomena such as prices, unemployment, and saving as they are perceived by households, independently of macroeconomic indicators. The summary indicator is the arithmetic mean of the following five indicators: living standards in France (past change / outlook); personal financial position (past change / outlook); timeliness of major purchases. For each question asked, s balance of opinion equal to the difference between the percentages of positive and negative responses is calculated. About 2 000 households are interviewed by telephone.

Gross domestic product (GDP), the featured measure of U.S. output, is the market value of the goods and services produced by labour and property located in the United States, regardless of nationality. GDP is measured as the sum of personal consumption expenditures, gross private domestic investment, net exports of goods and services (exports less imports), and government consumption expenditures and gross investment. GDP excludes intermediate purchases of goods and services by business. Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) measures goods and services purchased by U.S. residents. Gross private domestic investment consists of fixed investment and the change in private inventories. Fixed investment consists of both non-residential fixed investment and residential fixed investment. Government consumption expenditures and gross investment, the measure of government sector final demand, consists of two major components: Current consumption expenditures by general government and gross investment by both general government and government enterprises. There are 3 versions of GDP released a month apart - Advance, Preliminary, and Final. This is the preliminary release. Quarterly estimates are expressed at seasonally adjusted annual rates.

Consumer confidence surveys measure individual households' level of confidence in the economy's performance. The Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers are monthly surveys of consumer attitudes and expectations about the U.S. economy. They provide a gauge of consumer anticipation of changes in the economic environment. One part of the surveys - the Index of Consumer Expectations - is an official component of the U.S. Index of Leading Economic Indicators. The monthly Survey of Consumers is a nationally representative survey based on approximately 500 telephone interviews with adult men and women living in households in the co-terminous United States (48 states plus the District of Columbia). For each monthly sample, an independent cross-section sample of households is drawn. The respondents chosen in this drawing are then re-interviewed six months later. A rotating panel design results, and the total sample for any one survey is normally made up of 60 percent new respondents and 40 percent being interviewed for the second time. This is the final estimate.
