Up 0.1 per cent in April

From March to April 2007, the seasonally adjusted index of retail sales rose by 0.1 per cent.

Retail sales volume index seasonally adjusted. 2000-2007

Due to Easter, it is difficult to compare the index of retail sales for March and April with the corresponding months in 2006. The seasonally adjusted index takes Easter into account, but it is difficult to correct for Easter shopping. Therefore, the seasonally adjusted index for March and April is more uncertain than the seasonally adjusted indices for the other months.

Compared with April last year, the volume index not adjusted increased by 7.0 per cent in April this year. In the same period, the value index rose by 7.4 per cent.
