There are annual and monthly figures on turnover, prices and volume; and also figures on operating costs and revenues, and on employment and wages in the retail trade. The retail trade is divided into shops selling food products, shops selling non-food products, and trade through channels other than shops (e.g. market trade, trade via the Internet and mail order companies).

The External trade balance indicator is the difference between exports and imports of goods. Exports of goods record flows from an European Area/European Union (EA/EU) Member State to a non-EA/EU country while imports record inwards flows. Exports are expressed in value terms and measured 'free on board (FOB)', while imports are expressed in value terms and measured 'cost, insurance, freight' (CIF ). 'Goods' means all movable property including electric current. Data are expressed in billion Euro.

For short term indicators, the cycles that are relevant for the economic trends and which by definition have periodicities longer than one year, are generally affected by considerable short-term fluctuations (trend, economic fluctuations, seasonal fluctuations, calendar fluctuations, residual or irregular fluctuations). As a consequence, analysing the current business-cycle phase is quite difficult. To improve the accuracy of the economic trend analyses, it is common to apply mathematical filtering techniques to remove such fluctuations from the time series. So the value becomes Seasonally Adjusted (SA).
