The purpose of the Retail Trade Index is to analyse and explain the development in turnover within the different sectors of retail trade, which is the important part of private consumption in Denmark. For evaluations and analysis of this economic trend development and the sectors of retail trade the survey is used.
The retail sales index is for 43 industries and 3 main product categories of food and other groceries, clothing, etc., and other consumer goods. The statistics are based on data collected from major retailers. A sample of around 3500 retail enerprises is conducted by an online form or telephone input and used to collect monthly turnover figures.
