        From the Census Bureau

        The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that advance estimates of U.S. retail and food services sales for December, adjusted for seasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes, were $357.8 billion, an increase of 0.7 percent (±0.7%)* from the previous month and up 6.4 percent (±0.8%) from December 2004. Total sales for the 12 months of 2005 were up 7.3 percent (±0.2%) from 2004. Total sales for the October through December 2005 period were up 6.3 percent (±0.5%) from the same period a year ago. The October to November 2005 percent change was revised from +0.3 percent (±0.7%)* to +0.8 percent (±0.3%).
