The RTI, published by Ipsos, is regarded as the national benchmark for retail footfall in the UK. Unlike other footfall analysis, it is considered to be the only true measure of retail footfall, drawing exclusively on people entering stores rather than a hybrid of people movements in shopping centres, walking down high streets, commuting to work or office workers.
