Key Short—Term Economic Indicators. The Key Economic Indicators (KEI) database contains monthly and quarterly statistics (and associated statistical methodological information) for the 33 OECD member and for a selection of non—member countries on a wide variety of economic indicators, namely: quarterly national accounts, industrial production, composite leading indicators, business tendency and consumer opinion surveys, retail trade, consumer and producer prices, hourly earnings, employment/unemployment interest rates, monetary aggregates, exchange rates, international trade and balance of payments. Indicators have been prepared by national statistical agencies primarily to meet the requirements of users within their own country. In most instances, the indicators are compiled in accordance with international statistical guidelines and recommendations. However, national practices may depart from these guidelines and these departures may impact on comparability between countries. There is an on—going process of review and revision of the contents of the database in order to maximise the relevance of the database for short—term economic analysis.
