Describe three specific measures the government can use to access the health of a country's economy.

Take a shot. Think. There are a plentitude of ways governments affect the health of their economies.

I have some ideas but I'm not sure if they are right. Here are some of my ideas: The GDP, the unemployment rate, Consumer price index, and the inflation rate. Could you tell me if any of these answers are right?They all measure the health of the economy right?

Yes. Your list is of measures of the health of the economy. (CPI is one measure of the inflation rate). Other measures include changes in productivity, interest rates (such as rates on government securities or corporate bonds), consumer confidence measures, housing starts, investments by firms on plant and equipment, changes in the money supply, changes in savings rates, etc.
