|Flash consumer confidence indicator for EU and euro area|
In November 2015, the DG ECFIN flash estimate of the consumer confidence indicator increased markedly in both the EU (by 1.3 points to -4.4) and the euro area (by 1.6 points to -6.0) compared to October.
N.B. Only a tiny fraction of the underlying consumer interviews were carried out after the Paris terror attacks of Friday 13.
|October 2015: Economic Sentiment broadly unchanged in both the euro area and the EU|
In October, the Economic Sentiment Indicator (ESI) remained broadly unchanged in both the euro area (+0.3 points to 105.9) and the EU (-0.1 points to 107.5).
The Directorate General for Economic and Financial Affairs (DG ECFIN) conducts regular harmonised surveys for different sectors of the economies in the European Union (EU) and in the applicant countries. They are addressed to representatives of the industry (manufacturing), the services, retail trade and construction sectors, as well as to consumers. These surveys allow comparisons among different countries' business cycles and have become an indispensable tool for monitoring the evolution of the EU and the euro area economies, as well as monitoring developments in the applicant countries.
