Did you know...?
The Credit Sales Statistics offered information on the volume of sales by instalment of those goods and chattels registered in the sales by instalment registers. The central sales by instalment register sent monthly information on the number of trade contracts of registered goods and chattels as well their cash and financed value registered in national territory, Coverage was limited since it only accounted for goods registered in the sales by instalment register which did not include total sales by instalment since general registration was not compulsory.
As of August 1999 this statistic stopped being elaborated when the Order of July 1999 entered into force which approved the Order for the register of the sale of goods and chattels by instalment. Said order did not stipulate registration in the registers for some of the data that the INE collected to elaborate the aforementioned statistic.
