In the United States, the Johnson Redbook Index is a sales-weighted index that measures the growth in same-store sales from one year to the next in a sample of large general merchandise stores that represents around 9,000 businesses. Sales in stores that have been open for at least 12 months are referred to as same-store sales. According to the index's monetary worth, it outperforms the similar 'official retail sales statistic collected and reported by the United States Department of Commerce by more than 80%. Using retailer performance estimates collected and interpreted by Redbook, the Index is compiled and published. It is these estimations that are combined into the Index and its sub-groups, which are weighted according to sales. Weeks are retail weeks (from Sunday to Saturday), and they are evenly distributed throughout the month.

A higher than expected figure should be seen as positive (bullish) for the USD while a lower than expected figure should be seen as negative (bearish) for the USD.
