This series aims to provide comprehensive and authoritative surveys of UK economic and social statistics. They are aimed at anyone who needs to gain a thorough understanding of the sources for the study of the area under consideration. This title reviews the distribution sector of the economy, covering both retailing and wholesaling but the scope does not extend to the statistics of the hotel, catering and motor trades. As with all volumes in this series, the data is analyzed carefully by acknowledged experts and particular weight is laid on the proper interpretation of the sources. There is also an historical review extending back over 50 years. The series is published on behalf of the Economic and Social Research Council and the Royal Statistical Society.
