The U.S. Census Bureau reported that adjusted Electronics & Appliance Store sales in September 2010 were $8.724 billion, up from $8.598 billion in August and significantly higher than $8.260 billion in September 2009.

The most recent adjusted sales estimates for Appliance, TV, & Camera Stores, a subcategory of Electronics & Appliance Stores, is for August 2010, when they were $6.642 billion, down slightly from $6.736 billion in July 2010. Appliance, TV, & Camera Store sales in August 2009 were $6.621 billion.

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.
