Table description


This table presents information on turnover and volume developments in the sector Retail Trade (Section F according to the Standard Industrial Classification 2008 (SIC 2008)). Developments are presented as percentage changes compared to a previous period and by means of indices (base year 2015). Developments in turnover and volume are published in two formats. Firstly, in the form of year-on-year changes relative to the same period in the preceding year. These figures are shown both unadjusted and adjusted for trading days. The second format pertains to period-on-period changes, for example month-on-month. Period-on-period changes are calculated by applying seasonal adjustment.

Data available from: January 2005.

Status of the figures:
Figures on 2020 are provisional, the preceding periods are definite.
The figures of a calendar year will become definite no later than five months after the end of that calendar year. Until then, the figures in this table will be “provisional” and can still be adjusted as a result of delayed response.

Changes as of March 31, 2021:
Figures of February 2021 have been added. Figures of preceding periods in 2020 may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
As a rule, monthly statistics are published six to eight weeks after the end of the reporting month. Quarterly statistics are published on the last working day of the second month after the quarter. Once definite figures have been published, Statistics Netherlands will only revise the results if significant adjustments and/or corrections are necessary.

Description topics

Turnover trading day adjusted
By clearing the monthly results for trading day effects, month-to-month developments can be followed more clearly. For example, a turnaround in the increase or decrease in turnover can be determined more quickly than if there were no trading day adjustments.                        
Indices
An index compares the value of a variable (e.g. turnover) in a certain period with the value of the same variable in the base period. The index of this base period is 100.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT excluded. Turnover includes the main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.
Value
The development of the cash yield of the turnover.

Volume
Turnover adjusted for price developments.

The development has not been observed, but is calculated. The amount of goods and services sold in a certain period is calculated by Statistics Netherlands by dividing the value of the turnover by the price.
Turnover year-on-year change
Change in turnover indicates the growth rate with respect to the same period of the previous year as a percentage. Statistics Netherlands calculates this on the basis of non-rounded figures.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT excluded. Turnover includes the main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.



Value

Turnover seasonally adjusted
By clearing the monthly results for seasonal effects, month-to-month developments can be followed more clearly. For example, a turnaround in the increase or decrease in turnover can be determined more quickly than if there were no seasonal adjustments.
