Release Information

This release provides estimates of the value of turnover of "retail trade" for Australian businesses classified by industry, and by state and territor Trend, seasonally adjusted and original estimates are included for industry groups and states and Australia in current price terms.

The reference year is advanced each September issue and is currently 2017-18. Each year's data in the Retail chain volume series are based on the prices of the previous year, except for the quarters of the 2019-20 financial year which will initially be based upon price data for the 2017-18 financial year

Estimates of turnover are compiled from the monthly Retail Business Survey. About 500 'large' businesses are included in the survey every month, while a sample of about 2,700 'smaller' businesses is selected. The Survey is conducted monthly primarily by telephone interview although a small number of questionnaires are mailed to businesses.

 Data is seasonally adjusted and subject to adjustments.
