The Retail Trade Sales Survey is a monthly survey covering a sample of private enterprises operating in the retail trade sector in South Africa. The results of the survey are used to compile National Accounts aggregates (e.g. the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and its components, as well as private consumption expenditure), which are used to monitor and develop government policy. These statistics are also used by the private sector in analyses of comparative business and industry performance. The results are published monthly in Statistical Release P6242.1: Retail Trade Sales.
