Retail Sales

Data presented here are from the Arizona Department of Revenue . EBRC also calculates the sales categories below using a variety of sources which include  EBRC, AAA, Arizona Department of Revenue, Arizona Department of Transportation, and Joint Legislative Budget Committee.  This is why there are different cut-off dates for different categories.  Also EBRC publishes sales data on an accrual basis, meaning the month when the sales occurred, and not the month in which the taxes from these sales were collected (the following month). This always causes these data to lag behind other data sets such as employment, etc. Further, we often see lags in these data because from time to time there are embargoes on the release of some of these reports. The table footnotes explain how these categories are calculated.  If you have further questions, please contact EBRC.
