Retail sales down in February

The seasonally adjusted volume index of retail sales decreased 0.9 per cent in February 2001 compared with January 2001. The volume index not adjusted decreased 5.7 per cent in February 2001 compared with February 2000.

The value index of retail sales decreased 2.3 per cent and the price index rose 3.6 per cent in February 2001 compared with February 2000. February 2001 includes one trading day less than February 2000. The index excludes sales of motorized vehicles and petrol.

Preliminary results

These preliminary results are based on a sample of 8 400 responds. Before the publication of the final results of the retail sales index for February 2001, we expect to receive another 600 responds. The final results, to be published 6 April 2001, may therefore be adjusted.
