Retail trade index

The retail trade index measures the monthly evolution of the turnover at current prices of enterprises with retail sale outlets. Since January 2009 the indices are calculated with reference to the base year 2005 using the new Ateco 2007 classification (Italian edition of Nace Rev. 2).

In May 2011 the seasonally adjusted retail trade index decreased by 0.1% with respect to the previous month (-0.4% for food goods and 0.0% for non food goods). The average of the last three months compared to the previous three months decreased by 0.1%.
The unadjusted index fell by 0.6% with respect to May 2010.
