Netherlands: Consumer confidence remains unchanged at high level in November
November 18, 2016
Dutch consumer sentiment remained unchanged at a very high level in November. The seasonally-adjusted consumer confidence indicator produced by Statistics Netherlands in November stayed at October’s plus 12 points, which had marked the highest reading since August 2007. The index thus remained well above the 0-point threshold, which indicates that optimistic consumers outnumber pessimistic consumers.
Consumer confidence remained unchanged because the more positive assessment in households’ future financial situation was offset by a slightly weaker willingness to buy.
