Retail sales rose from October to November
The seasonally adjusted volume index rose 1.1 per cent from October to November this year.
The index excludes sales of motorised vehicles and petrol. The volume index of retail sales not adjusted increased 0.8 per cent in November 2000 compared with November 1999. The value index rose 3.3 percent and the price index increased 2.5 per cent the same period.
These preliminary results are based on a sample of 8 500 responds. Before the publication of the final results of the retail sales index for November 2000, we expect to receive another 650 responds. The final results, to be published January 2001, may therefore be adjusted.
