ADVANCE MONTHLY SALES FOR RETAIL AND FOOD SERVICESAUGUST 2010
The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that advance estimates of U.S. retail and food services sales for August, adjusted forseasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes, were $363.7 billion, an increase of 0.4 percent(±0.5%)* from the previous month, and 3.6 percent (±0.5%) above August 2009. Total sales for the June through August 2010 periodwere up 4.7 percent (±0.3%) from the same period a year ago. The June to July 2010 percent change was revised from +0.4 percent(±0.5%)* to +0.3 percent (±0.2%).Retail trade sales were up 0.5 percent (±0.5%)* from July 2010, and 3.7 percent (±0.7%) above last year. Nonstore retailers sales wereup 10.5 percent (±2.8%) from August 2009 and gasoline stations sales were up 9.6 percent (±1.8%) from last year.
The advance estimates are based on a subsample of the Census Bureau’s full retail and food services sample. A stratified random sampling method is used to select approximately 5,000 retail and food services firms whose sales are then weighted and benchmarked to represent the complete universe of over three million retail and food services firms. Responding firms account for approximately 65% of the MARTS dollar volume estimate. For an explanation of the measures of sampling variability included in this report, please see the Reliability of Estimates section on the last page of this publication

Survey Description
The U.S. Census Bureau conducts the Advance Monthly RetailTrade and Food Services Survey (MARTS) to provide an earlyestimate of monthly sales by kind of business for retail and foodservice firms located in the United States. Each month,questionnaires are mailed to a probability sample of approximately5,000 employer firms selected from the larger Monthly Retail TradeSurvey (MRTS). Firms responding to MARTS account forapproximately 65% of the total national sales estimate. Advancesales estimates are computed using a link relative estimator. Thechange in sales from the previous month is estimated usingonly units that have reported data for both the current andprevious month. There is no imputation or adjustment fornonrespondents in MARTS. The total sales estimate is derived bymultiplying this ratio by the preliminary sales estimate for theprevious month (derived from the larger MRTS sample). Detailedindustry estimates are summed to derive total estimates at broadindustry levels. The monthly estimates are adjusted using annualsurvey estimates and for seasonal variation and holiday andtrading-day differences. Additional information on MARTS andMRTS can be found on the Census Bureau website at:http://www.census.gov/retail.
