03 Clothing and footwear


14.33 This item includes all personal outlays on new clothing (including sporting clothing) and accessories (such as belts and handbags), clothing materials, and tailoring and dressmaking services (including alterations and repairs); and personal outlays on shoes and boots including most sporting footwear.

Sources and methods

14.34 The periodic Retail Census provides the primary benchmarks for these series. The census results are adjusted for sales that are out of scope of the census. Other elements included in the benchmark are: sales by manufacturing and wholesale establishments and sales by organisations selling directly to the public. The latest benchmark is moved forward using data from the monthly Survey of Retail Trade.

Volume estimates

14.35 Current price estimates of purchases of clothing and footwear by Australian residents in Australia are revalued using the relevant component of the CPI.

14.36 Current price estimates of purchases of clothing and footwear by Australian residents overseas are revalued using a composite index of overseas CPIs.

14.37 Chain volume estimates of purchases of clothing and footwear are derived by aggregating the elemental volume components of the above.
