  • Coresight Research’s monthly reports keep you up to date on retail sales (in total and by sector) and key consumer indicators, focusing on the US, the UK and China.

  • Coresight Research’s measure of core retail sales is the unadjusted year-over-year change, excluding gasoline and automobiles. As reported by the US Census Bureau, January 2022 saw healthy growth versus 2021, boosted by continued average hourly wage growth in a strong month of job creation.
