July 2012: Flash Consumer Confidence Indicator

In July 2012, the DG ECFIN flash estimate of the consumer confidence indicator decreased in the EU (to -20.3 after -19.7 in June 2012) and, more sharply, in the euro area (to -21.6 after -19.8 in June 2012).

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.
