Netherlands: Consumer confidence inches up in January

January 22, 2015

The seasonally-adjusted consumer confidence indicator produced by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) inched up from December’s minus 7.0 points to minus 6.0 points in January. As a result, the index still rests below the 0-point threshold, which indicates that pessimists outnumber optimists.

According to the CBS, consumer confidence in January rose slightly as both consumers’ assessment of the economic climate and their willingness to buy recorded minor improvements over the previous month.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists see private consumption expanding 0.8% in 2015, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate. In 2016, the panel expects private consumption also to grow 0.8%.
