|Flash consumer confidence indicator for EU and euro area|
In January 2015, the DG ECFIN flash estimate of the consumer confidence indicator increased markedly in both the EU (by 1.7 points to -5.8) and the euro area (by 2.4 points to -8.5) compared to December 2014.
|December 2014: Economic Sentiment again stable in both the euro area and the EU|
In December, the Economic Sentiment Indicator (ESI) remained stable for the second month in a row. It stayed unchanged (at 100.7) in the euro area and was also virtually flat in the EU (+0.1 points to 104.2).
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.
