r—Revised.
Data not available.
1/ During"March and April changes from a year ago reflect 'in part the fact that last
year Easter -was on March 28 while this year it was on April 17. For this
reason it is estimated that in comparison, with last year allowance should be
made for a decrease in sales of about 6 per cent foi4 the month of March as a
whole and for a corresponding increase for the month of April as a whole.
