OCTOBER KEY POINTS
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
As indicated in the September issue, this issue introduces changes to the sample design and methodology of the Retail Business Survey. As a result, lower level estimates are subject to higher volatility than usual and may be revised in subsequent issues. The changes have also resulted in a break in time series between September 2013 and October 2013 for completely enumerated sector and sample sector estimates. For more detail, see Changes to the Retail Business Survey from October 2013.
There are no revisions to the original estimates. Revisions to seasonally adjusted estimates are due to the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors.
