The Index of retail sales, objective and scope

The objective of the Index of retail sales is to describe the value and volume development in retail sales, excluding sales of motor vehicles. Retail sales consist of enterprises committed to sales of new and used goods to private households. The sale is executed from either a fixed or moveable sales outlet, a market place or via internet or mail order. Examples of retail sales can be: sale of food, beverages, clothing, shoes, domestic electrical appliances, furniture, building equipment and so on.

Value indices and volume indices 

Value indices show the development in turnover not adjusted for changes in prices. Volume indices show the development in turnover corrected for price changes. This is also referred to as the development in fixed prices.

Seasonally-adjusted numbers
