http://www.census.gov/econ/www/retmenu.html * CENSUS OF RETAIL TRADE

PURPOSE

To provide periodic and comprehensive statistics about retail establishments and activities. The United States Code, Title 13, requires this census and provides for mandatory responses.

COVERAGE

Domestic establishments that sell merchandise and related services to the public for personal or household consumption. These are all establishments classified in SIC Division G, excluding nonemployers engaged in direct selling (SIC 5963). In 1992, over 1.5 million employer establishments accounted for retail sales of nearly $1.9 trillion.

CONTENT

Basic data obtained for all establishments include kind of business, geographic location, dollar volume of sales, annual and first quarter payroll, and employment for the pay period including March 12. Establishments receiving a census form provide additional data on organizational status, sales by class of customer, sales by merchandise line, method of selling, and industry-specific measures (such as number of prescriptions by drug stores).

FREQUENCY

Every 5 years since 1972, for years ending in "2" and "7." From 1929 through 1967, retail trade statistics were published periodically as part of the census of business. Data collection begins in December of the census year and responses are due in about 8 weeks. Data are requested for activities taking place during the census calendar year.

METHODS

A mail-out/mail-back data collection for establishments of multi-unit companies, large single-unit employers, and a sample of small employers; and administrative records data for non-selected small employers and all nonemployers. All establishments of multi-unit firms and single-unit employers with annualized payroll above a size cutoff (for most industries, equivalent to about 3 employees) receive a census form. A sample of small employers also receives a census form. This sample is selected using a stratified sampling procedure with strata based on industry and geography. Basic data for non- selected small employers and nonemployers are obtained from Federal administrative records. Estimates for sales by merchandise line and other industry-specific data are based partly on small employer sample results.
