March 2014: Flash Consumer Confidence Indicator

In March 2014, the DG ECFIN flash estimate of the consumer confidence indicator increased markedly in both the EU (-6.7 after -9.3 in February 2014) and the euro area (-9.3 after -12.7 in February 2014).

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.
