Highlights
Wholesale inventories edged 0.1 percent lower in March with February revised 2 tenths lower to a small build of 0.2 percent. These results point to strong inventory management at the wholesale level but will be negatives for quarterly inventory change in tomorrow's GDP report.

Definition
Wholesale inventories measure the monthly dollar value of inventories held by merchant wholesalers and are tracked to gauge inventory change in quarterly GDP. The advance report is released late in the month for the following month and is part of the Monthly Advance Economic Indicators report (which also includes data on retail inventories and international trade in goods). Final monthly data for wholesale inventories are released about two weeks later with the Wholesale Trade report which also includes initial monthly data on wholesale sales.
