STI: Market Outlook - Methodology

Your Data Building Blocks for Identifying Consumer Demand and Supply Gaps

The consumer demand and supply data for STI: Market Outlook is derived for annual retail sales and expenditures from the following three major sources of information:

  1. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Expenditure Survey (CE). Demand data is derived from this source.
  2. U.S. Census Bureau's Census of Retail Trade (CRT) reports. The annual and monthly reports contribute to Market Outlook's supply data.
  3. U.S. Census Bureau's Economic Census. Supply data is also derived from this source, which provides an even more detailed view than the CRT reports.
