Retail Control m/m is a volume of retail sales of the control group of goods in the given month compared to the previous one. The calculation excludes food, cars, building materials and motor fuel.

The control group is used as a measure of the "core" consumer spending and applied in further PCE calculations. Since this is an auxiliary indicator, it indirectly characterizes the economic situation and inflation in the United States.

The index has a weak impact on USD.
