Because retail sales are a measure of consumer demand for finished goods, they are a leading macroeconomic indicator of the pulse of an economy and its projected path toward expansion or contraction.
Retail sales Y-on-Y is calculated as the percent change in the Retail sales index from the same month the previous year.
The Retail sales Y-on-Y measures only volume changes, i.e. price level changes are excluded.
