The Swiss KOF Economic Barometer is a leading indicator which measures overall economic activity and is an excellent indicator of the direction of the Swiss economy. The KOF Economic Barometer is one or two quarters ahead of the GDP growth rate of the previous year and thus enables an initial estimate to be made of how the Swiss economy will perform in the next or in the next two quarters.

The Barometer is ultimately adjusted to take account of seasonal fluctuations and random factors. The Barometer is published monthly.

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.
