Did the Census Bureau change its Advance Monthly Retail Trade and Food Services Survey analytical procedures in August, September, or October 2005?

Yes. In addition to the usual analysis done every month, we reviewed independent data sources, discussed the effects of the hurricanes with companies on the survey, and asked companies reporting a period not including the days affected by the hurricanes to provide the additional information in order to accurately represent the entire month.
