Retail sales volume index seasonally adjusted. 2002-2009

Due to Easter, it is difficult to compare the sales index for March and April with the corresponding month in 2008. 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.

The non-adjusted volume index decreased by 3.5 per cent from April 2008 to April2009. In the same period, the volume index, excluding petrol stations, decreased by 3.2 per cent.

From April last year to April this year, the value index, excluding petrol stations and including petrol stations, decreased by 1.3 and 1.0 per cent respectively.
