Release Date:

For the Monthly Retail Trade Survey, all current month estimates are preliminary estimates, which will be superseded in following months by revised estimates.

Inventories estimates released as part of the Advance Economic Indicators Report are not included in the time series. For the latest advance estimates, go to the Advance Economic Indicators Report website.

For information on the reliability and use of the data, including important notes on estimation and sampling variance, seasonal adjustment, measures of sampling variability, and other information pertinent to this economic indicator, go to the Monthly and Annual Retail Trade website, which provides time-series Excel files for Sales [XLS, 665kb], and Inventories and Inventories/Sales Ratios [XLS, 420kb] data.

Estimated measures of sampling variability for totals are expressed as coefficients of variation (CV). Standard errors (SE) are provided for month-to-month change and ratio estimates.

Estimated measures of sampling variability are based on data not adjusted for seasonal variation, and should be used when drawing inferences about both adjusted and not adjusted estimates.

Inventories are only available for the following industries (defined in Box 3 above): 44000, 4400A, 441, 4423X, 444, 445, 448, 452, 4521.

NA = Not available.

(S) = Suppressed.

The Y-axis for the line charts may be truncated to prevent flattening of the lines or to present the complete range of data.
