SECO conducts a private household survey on a quarterly basis (in January, April, July and October). Its aim is to compile data on subjective assessments and expectations of consumers, for instance with respect to the general state of the economy, the consumers’ financial situation, the development of prices, job security and so forth. Overall, eleven questions are being asked. The first survey took place in October 1972 (fourth quarter).
Consumer sentiment confirms economy is stabilising
Households are feeling more optimistic about the development of the economic situation and labour market. However, consumer sentiment remains below average overall, as households’ own budget situation is still gloomy.
