(°) Statistical significance is not applicable or not measurable for these surveys. The Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories and Orders estimates are not based on a probability sample, so we can neither measure the sampling error of these estimates nor compute confidence intervals.
All estimates are seasonally adjusted except for the Rental Vacancy Rate, Home Ownership Rate, and Quarterly Financial Report for Retail Trade. None of the estimates are adjusted for price changes.
