June’s broad-based improvement came against a backdrop of easing coronavirus-related restrictions both domestically and abroad. In June, households’ willingness to purchase large ticket items improved markedly, as well as their appraisal of the general economic outlook. Moreover, consumers’ outlook for unemployment turned less pessimistic compared to the previous month.
