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).
