The United States collects data on spending by sector and makes it pretty accessible. I compiled a dataset of some of the more prominent sectors for holiday spending, and dug in to see what trends I could find. We all know the holidays account for an uptick in consumer spending, but I didn’t realize just how much until I took a look at the visualizations. Department stores, discount department stores, gift stores, toy stores, jewelry stores, plus men and women’s clothing stores are included in this dataset, as these see the largest increase during the holiday season.
