 Detroit
 Selected Indicators

This fact sheet presents recent employment and unemployment figures for the Detroit area, Michigan, and the United States. The Consumer Price
Index (CPI) measures price changes or inflation for particular commodities and services at the retail level. The Producer Price Index (PPI) measures
price changes or inflation for particular commodities and services at the wholesale level and is widely used by business firms as an escalator in long-term
contracts. The Employment Cost Index (ECI) measures price changes or inflation of labor costs which includes wages and salaries and employer costs
for employee benefits. An occupational pay relative is a calculation of pay—wages, salaries, commissions, and production bonuses—for a given
metropolitan area relative to the nation as a whole; the calculation controls for differences among areas in occupational composition, establishment, and
occupational characteristics, and the fact that data are collected for areas at different times during the year.
