Retail turnover (sales) for Ukraine, "total" and "of which: enterprises," in single-month and YTD terms, and subnational. Monthly from 2003, with a break in geographic scope for the Crimean crisis.
Retail trade turnover represents the receipts received from the selling of commodities meant for own consumption directly to households; households should pay in cash or by clearing house checks issued by banks, or bank charge cards. They have to do their shopping in the specially tailored trading network (stores, drugstores, stalls, kiosks, filling stations, etc.).
There are two Retail Trade datasets updated monthly:
Each dataset generally covers the nation and all first-level subnational areas. Disputed areas ("temporarily occupied areas," "the Crimean crisis") end in 2014.
Reported data are not revised by the source.
Starting from June 2014, the national value excludes the disputed areas.
