Retail Turnover measures the turnover of local retail trade


What does Retail Turnover mean?

Retail Turnover measures the turnover of local retail trade at point of sale. In contrast to the Purchasing Power and Retail Spending, Retail Turnover quantifies the purchases at the consumers’ place of expenditure.

As this refers to the retail turnover available within an area it does not necessary mean that this reflects the retail spending available within the respective areas. Therefore showing the retail turnover / money spent on retail of a given area.
