All the numbers
GDA Staff -- Gifts & Dec, June 16, 2003
Data for Numbers 2003 is based on information provided directly by producers in these categories. Home Textiles Today augments the information from manufacturers with data from the U.S. Department of Commerce; Claritas, a market research firm headquartered in San Diego; and import data from the U.S. Customs Service, U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. International Trade Commission.
The range of average retail mark-ups reflects the producers' knowledge of the practices of their retail accounts.
HTT has made some improvements to this year's Facts surveys. Please see "HTT refines facts survey" on page 16.
The reports, which originally appeared as independent stories from January to June 2003, were compiled by senior research specialist Janice Chamberlain; product editor Cecile B. Corral; director of market research Kay Anderson; and editor-in-chief Jennifer Marks.
