Retail Sales Report for January 2006

The U.S. Commerce Department has released their monthly retail sales report for January of 2006:

Consensus: 0.9%
Actual: 2.3%

Minus Auto Sales
Consensus: 0.7%
Actual : 2.2%

The above percentages represent the month-to-month change in total sales receipts for retailers that sell both durable and non-durable goods.

The "consensus" is what economists were expecting, while the "actual" is the actual or real figure.
