Updated online retail turnover estimates for the June 2015 reference month are provided and explained within the appendix section of this publication.
As happens each year, an annual seasonal reanalysis has been undertaken based on estimates up to and including May 2015. No significant changes have occurred in this reanalysis, resulting in only minor revisions to the seasonally adjusted estimates.
There are no revisions to the original estimates. Revisions to seasonally adjusted estimates are due to the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors. For information on seasonal adjustment and trend estimation please refer to the explanatory notes of this publication.
