The index of retail sales and the Quarterly National AccountsOpen and readClose

The index of household consumption of goods describes the development in household consumption of goods. For goods sold in the retailing industry, the index of retail sales is the main source. The index of household consumption of goods also includes purchases of cars (initial registration) and consumption of electricity and heating fuels.

The index of household consumption of goods uses the same definitions and methods of compilation as the Quarterly National Accounts, and thus serves as an indicator of household final consumption expenditure in the Quarterly National Accounts.
