Release Information

For Luxembourg, the retail trade turnover index is designed to be an indicator of the economic cycle. Turnover consists of the totals invoiced by the observation unit during a reference period, and corresponds to market sales of goods or services supplied to third parties. Other charges (e.g., packaging) that are passed on to the customer are also included in turnover.

Data are collected by Eurostat and compiled by Statec.

Figures are value or volume indexes based to 2015 (2015=100). The index is a chained Laspeyres index. Weights from 2015 have been used since January 2016. The activities classification is NACE Rev. 2. 

Moody's Analytics produces seasonally adjusted supplements, using the U.S. Census Bureau's X-13 ARIMA program.

According to Eurostat's new revision policy, national data continues to be revised when extra information from national statistical authorities or from seasonal adjustment completed by Eurostat becomes available.

An error report is released when errors are detected and corrected immediately. 

Major revisions and changes to methodologies are announced in the montly press release.
