The aim of this barometer is to supply early information on changes in the retail sector, for the purposes of economic analysis and business forecasting.
It seeks to record the opinions of the retailers surveyed on their business prospects. This trend is measured by monitoring activity and variables such as changes in business/sales, stocks and staffing levels.
The results gathered enable a monthly business climate summary indicator to be established for the retail sector.
