(a) Advanced estimate


(p) Preliminary estimate
(S) Suppressed - Estimate does not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability (coefficient of variation is greater than 30%), poor response quality (total quantity response rate
is less than 50%), or other concerns about the estimate's quality.

(1) GAFO represents stores classified in the following NAICS codes: 442, 443, 448, 451, 452, and 4532. NAICS code 4532 includes office supplies, stationery, and gift stores.
(2) With the recent Annual Revision of Monthly Retail and Food Services published on April 30, 2014, we reinstated the previously suppressed not adjusted estimates of sales for
NAICS 44221 (Floor Covering Stores) from 2012 forward. Monthly sales estimates for 2012 were revised via benchmarking to the 2012 ARTS results. Additionally, estimates from 2013
forward were analyzed and validated.
(3) Includes data for leased departments operated within department stores. Data for this line not included in any aggregate kind-of-business totals.
(4) Estimates are adjusted for seasonal variations and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes. Cumulative seasonally adjusted sales estimates are not tabulated.
(5) With the recent Annual Revision of Monthly Retail and Food Services published on April 30, 2014, we are reinstating the previously suppressed seasonally adjusted estimates of sales
for NAICS 44811 (Men’s Clothing) from January 2001 forward.

Note: Estimates are not adjusted for price changes. Retail and food services total and other subsector totals may include data for kinds of business not shown.
Information on sample design, estimation procedures, and measures of sampling variability can be found on the internet at http://www.census.gov/retail/mrts/how_surveys_are_collected.html.

(S) Suppressed - Estimate does not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability (coefficient of variation is greater than 30%), poor response quality (total quantity response rate
is less than 50%), or other concerns about the estimate's quality.

(1) GAFO represents stores classified in the following NAICS codes: 442, 443, 448, 451, 452, and 4532. NAICS code 4532 includes office supplies, stationery, and gift stores.
(2) With the recent Annual Revision of Monthly Retail and Food Services published on April 30, 2014, we reinstated the previously suppressed not adjusted estimates of sales for
NAICS 44221 (Floor Covering Stores) from 2012 forward. Monthly sales estimates for 2012 were revised via benchmarking to the 2012 ARTS results. Additionally, estimates from 2013
forward were analyzed and validated.
(3) Includes data for leased departments operated within department stores. Data for this line not included in any aggregate kind-of-business totals.
(4) Estimates are adjusted for seasonal variations and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes. Cumulative seasonally adjusted sales estimates are not tabulated.
(5) With the recent Annual Revision of Monthly Retail and Food Services published on April 30, 2014, we are reinstating the previously suppressed seasonally adjusted estimates of sales
for NAICS 44811 (Men’s Clothing) from January 2001 forward.

Note: Estimates are not adjusted for price changes. Retail and food services total and other subsector totals may include data for kinds of business not shown.
