NOTE: Percent changes are monthly unless otherwise noted. Three month annualized calculations are the latest three months average compared to the previous three months average. Monthly changes are seasonally adjusted, yearly changes are not adjusted.

(*) This calculation removes gas, building materials & auto and other motor vehicle dealers (a component of motor vehicles & parts) from total retail & food service sales.

The estimates above are based on a sample of about 5,000 retail and food service firms whose sales are then weighted. Based upon this sample, the Census Bureau is 90 percent confident that the change in retail sales to the over 3 million retail establishments was between -0.4 and 0.6 percent last month.
