On April 12, IBGE will release the new series of the Monthly Survey of Trade - PMC

On April 12 at 9 AM, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics will release the new series of the Brazilian trade sector.

With the release of the indicators of January 2023, the IBGE starts a new series of indexes of the retail trade and extended retail trade, by updating the sample of enterprises, the year in which the weights of the activities are used in the calculation of the indexes (from 2014 to 2022) and the reference period for which the average indexes are equal to 100.

In addition to the series of the ten activities usually released, the PMC will count with an additional one, “Wholesale specialized in Food Products, Beverages and Tobacco”, which complements both the vision of the activity of “Hypermarkets and supermarkets, food products, beverages and toiletries”, in the scope of the retail trade, and the aggregation of the extended retail trade, which compiles wholesale information.

The series published until December 2022 were calculated with the reference period of 2014 equal to 100. On the other hand, the series that start in January 2023 begin to be calculated with the reference period of 2022 equal to 100. To make the series comparable, each time series will be linked with each other through a chaining method.

The complete series of the indexes (chained series) have the year of 2022 as the reference period.

The major changes and news of the survey, considering the new sample, data collection, weights and new sampling plan, will be presented in the “Methodological Webinar: updating of the monthly surveys of industry, trade and services”, that the IBGE will conduct for journalists on March 7, 2023 at 10 AM. The event can be followed on the IBGE official YouTube channel.
