In March 2015 the seasonally adjusted retail trade index decreased by -0.1% with respect to February 2015 (-0.1% for both food and non-food goods). The average of the last three months compared to the previous three months was unvaried.
The unadjusted index decreased by 0.2% with respect to March 2014.
