The U.S. Census Bureau does not report "advanced estimates" for Appliance, TV, & Camera Stores, a subcategory of Electronics & Appliance Stores. For that reason, Estimated Monthly Sales in this subcategory are reported a month later than the category. The category, Electronics & Appliance Stores, also includes another subcategory, Computer & Software Stores.
"Adjusted" estimated monthly sales are adjusted for seasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes.
