RETAIL TRADE

Chain volume estimates measure changes in value after the direct effects of price changes have been eliminated, allowing volume changes to be observed over time. The total retail turnover in chain volume measures for the ACT in 2005-06 was $3,851.8m. The Food retailing industry group contributed the largest amount to the total turnover with $1,481.6m (38% of total turnover), followed by Household good retailing ($790.0m, or 21%) and Hospitality and services ($464.2m, or 12%).


Household good retailing recorded the largest dollar increase between 2004-05 and 2005-06, up $106.9m (16%).
