The Retail Sales Index (RSI) is derived from a monthly survey of 5,000 businesses in Great Britain and measures the change in the volume of sales by retailers in the country. The sample represents the whole retail sector and includes all large retailers and a representative panel of smaller businesses. Collectively all of these businesses cover approximately 95 per cent of the retail sector in terms of turnover. Higher retail sales volume shows stronger consumer demand, higher retail output, and economic growth. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.

The budget survey also provides data on the distribution of purchases by distribution channel, also called 'shop types'.
