Indicators for the wholesale and retail sector
Business tendency indicators for the wholesale and retail sector.
Ten indicators are produced using weighted net balances (WNBs) defined as the difference between the proportion of businesses reporting seeing an increase in a particular measure compared with the proportion of businesses seeing a decrease.
There are eight indicators which measure current performance compared to three months earlier:
- business activity
- new business
- capacity utilisation
- input costs
- product prices
- business optimism
There are two indicators measuring future performance for the next three months:
- future business activity
- future employment
Data is not available for June and September 2016, as the survey was not run for these quarters.
