  • 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.
  • Complementing our monthly reports, the Coresight Research US Retail Sales Databank brings together retail sales data to help you understand the scale and trajectory of US retail.
  • 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 on October 15, 2021, September 2021 saw healthy growth on a year-over-year basis, posting the second consecutive month of double-digit growth—however, it was a slight deceleration from August.
  • Compared to 2019 values, September sales were strong, with growth picking up from August—likely driven by declining rates of Covid-19 Delta cases, combined with an in-person back-to-school season and increasing numbers of workers heading back to the office.
