Are new retail businesses selling via the Internet added to the monthly and annual survey?

Yes. We update our sample regularly to account for new businesses, including retailers selling exclusively via the Internet. New businesses are identified when they notify the Federal Government of their intention to hire employees. The Bureau draws a sample of these new businesses and adds them to the survey each quarter.

For more information, visit the Monthly and Annual Retail Trade website.
