July 2014: Flash Consumer Confidence Indicator
In July 2014, the DG ECFIN flash estimate of the consumer confidence indicator decreased in both the EU (by -1.2 points to -5.5) and the euro area (by -0.9 points to ‑8.4) compared to June.
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.
Scheduled publication dates
The next Business and Consumer Survey is due to be published on 30 July 2014.
