Retail sales up 1.2 per cent

The seasonally adjusted volume index of retail sales rose 1.2 per cent in March compared with February this year. Compared with the average of the three first months this year, the seasonally adjusted volume index rose by 0.8 per cent.

The seasonally adjusted volume index takes the timing of Easter into account. There is nevertheless considerable uncertainty in the model we use to correct for Easter. The seasonally adjusted index for March is therefore more uncertain than the index for the other months.

The volume index of retail sales not seasonally adjusted decreased 1.1 per cent in March 2002 compared with March 2001. During the same period the value index rose by 1.6 per cent. Retail sale is exclusive sales of motor vehicles and petrol.

Preliminary results

These preliminary results are based on a sample of 9 340 responds. Before the publication of the final results of the retail sales index for March 2002, we expect to receive another 800 responds. The final results, to be published 8 May 2002, may therefore be adjusted.
