The various types of households are based on spending-related characteristics: level and source of income, household size and composition, age of main earner, home ownership. The budget survey also provides data on the distribution of purchases by distribution channel, also called 'shop types'.

The Retail Sales Index (RSI) is derived from a monthly survey of 5,000 businesses in Great Britain and measures the change in the volume of sales by retailers in the country. The sample represents the whole retail sector and includes all large retailers and a representative panel of smaller businesses. Collectively all of these businesses cover approximately 95 per cent of the retail sector in terms of turnover. Higher retail sales volume shows stronger consumer demand, higher retail output, and economic growth. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

This survey presents estimates of monthly sales levels for wholesale merchants in Canada, each province and territory. This survey provides information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector and is an important indicator of the health of the Canadian economy. Wholesale sales in real terms are calculated by deflating current dollar values using import and industry product price indexes. As many of the goods sold by wholesalers are imported, fluctuations in the value of the Canadian dollar can have an important influence on the prices of goods bought and sold by wholesalers. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.
