Definition

The volume in base units expresses sales, not in boxes (CU or consumer units), but in number of units constituting the box (tablets, capsules, milliliter, etc. ...).
The volume in base units makes it possible to analyze sales which take into account the packaging of the product to be more comparable.

Example

Let us take the example of a box containing 30 capsules (BU or base units) each containing 50 milligrams of the active principle PA.
1,000 UA of this product were sold over a period of time.
The volume in base units is:
Sales volume in UA x Number of base units
Either: 1,000 units sold x 30 capsules = 30,000 units sold

Terminology

The volume indicator in basic units can be translated into English as "Volume in basic units".

Limitation

This indicator is only available for pharmacies data and only for drugs
