Geo coverage is the nation
"Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) conducts a monthly survey of the retail trade industry, covering retail enterprises. This survey is based on a sample drawn from Stats SA's 2017 business sampling frame (BSF) that contains businesses registered for value added tax (VAT).
In order to improve timeliness, some information for the latest month had to be estimated due to late response. These estimates will be revised in future statistical releases as soon as information becomes available. Published retail trade sales estimates include value added tax (VAT)."
Data are subject to revisions.
