Retail sales down

The seasonally-adjusted volume index of retail sales decreased by 0.4per cent from March to April 2006.

The sales index for March and April is difficult to compare with the same month in 2005 due to Easter. The seasonally-adjusted index takes Easter into account, but it is difficult to correct for Easter shopping. The seasonally-adjusted index for March and April is therefore more uncertain than the seasonally-adjusted indices for the other months.
