Retail trade sales decreased by 1.7 per cent year-on-year in September 2015, according to Statistics Finland’s retail trade flash estimate.
By contrast, the volume of retail trade sales, from which the impact of prices has been eliminated, went up by 0.2 per cent over the same period.
In daily consumer goods trade, sales decreased by 1.9 per cent in September but the volume of sales remained on the same level as in September 2014.
Turnover developed weaker than sales volume both in retail trade and in daily consumer goods trade due to fallen prices.
Annual changes in trade sales and sales volumes are given unadjusted for seasonal variation. There were 26 week-day trading days in September 2015, which is the same as in September 2014.
Daily consumer goods accounted for 48.3 per cent of turnover in retail trade in 2013, according to the Structural business and financial statement statistics.
The retail trade flash estimate is based on a sample covering, on the average, 60 per cent of retail trade turnover.
