September 2011: Flash Consumer Confidence Indicator

Brussels, 22 September 2011 - In September 2011, the DG ECFIN (Directorate General for Economic and Monetary Affairs) flash estimate of the consumer confidence indicator declined in both the EU (down to -19.0 from -16.8 in August 2011) and the euro area (down to -18.9 from -16.5 in August 2011).

Computation of Flash CCI

To compute the flash consumer confidence indicator for the EU and euro area, DG ECFIN uses the data available on the cut-off date. The estimation procedure combines historical data with information from those Member States for which data are available in the reference month. Experience has shown this procedure to be statistically reliable.

Further information on the computation procedure can be found in the European Business Cycle Indicators of January 2010.
