Revision of the results of the monthly retail trade statistics

As of March 2017, a larger online sales enterprise, which established a branch in Germany in May 2015, has been included in the statistics of retail trade. This inclusion has required a recalculation of the relevant results back to reference month May 2015 in order to reflect the economic development more adequately. For this reason, the extent of revisions is larger than before.
