This dataset includes manufacturing and construction industry, retail trade, services industries, non-manufacturing industries and consumer opinions on economic situation, confidence indicators and inflation.

Composite leading indicators This dataset includes times series, formed by aggregating a variety of component indicators which show a reasonably consistent relationship with a reference series (e.g. industrial production IIP) at turning points.

This dataset includes financial statistics on five separate subjects: monetary aggregates, interest rates, exchange rates, reserve assets, and share prices. Data are expressed in different measures.

International trade
This dataset includes exports, imports, balance and world trade statistics. Data are expressed in billions of US dollars.

This dataset includes two separate subjects: consumer prices and producer prices. Consumer prices includes all items, food, energy, housing. Producer prices includes total industrial product and manufacturing products. Data are expressed in index 2005=100 or percentages.

Production and sales (from 1919)
This dataset includes industrial statistics on four separate subjects: production; sales; orders and work started. Data are expressed in index 2005=100 or tons.
