France: Consumer confidence remains unchanged in September
September 28, 2016
The consumer confidence indicator produced by the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE) remained stable in September at August’s 97 points. The indicator remains below its long-term average of 100.
In its statement, INSEE pointed out that September’s reading reflected varied views of the economy. French consumers were more optimistic about their savings capacity, employment prospects and future standard of living in France while they held a more negative view on their past financial situation.
