With the September print, the index idled below the 100-point threshold that separates optimism from pessimism for a second consecutive month this year, implying subdued prospects for private consumption going forward. In comparison to August's poll, households were less concerned regarding current economic conditions but more worried about their current living standards. In contrast, households' expectations regarding their short-term income improved, which resulted in higher prospects for major purchases compared to August's survey.
