Contents and Abstracts - Volume 19 Number 2 2012
QuickStats is the statistical database of over 14,000 global industry statistics downloadable individually or in pre-formatted tables, including the total number and GLA of shopping centres by category for 27 European countries and historic data from ICSC's Pan-European Shopping Centre Executive Opinion Survey.
Country Fact Sheets provide high-level data on the retail property and retail industries in specific countries worldwide. The Fact Sheets include data on the number, GLA and type of shopping centres in a country; statistics on retail and shopping centre sales and employment; and a list of the five largest shopping centres, retailers and shopping centre owners. The information provided is broadly similar for all countries to facilitate international comparisons, although not all data is available for all countries. Fact sheets are currently available for the following European countries with more on the way soon: Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and UK.
Country Fact Sheets are based on information sourced by ICSC members who are industry experts based in the country concerned and they are updated on a regular basis. ICSC believes that the information provided is reliable, but cannot guarantee its accuracy and is not liable for any damages arising out of its use.
If you have questions regarding the data or would like to volunteer to add to or refresh the statistics provided, please contact ICSC Research at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Global Shopping Center Directory
The new ICSC Global Shopping Center Directory, which is powered by Real Capital Analytics, was launched in late May 2010. This new online directory has been vastly expanded with mapping and better searching capabilities. ICSC members can look up international shopping centre data such as the centre name, location, owner/developer, the year the property was opened, size (gross leasable area), key tenants and management or leasing contact information.
