Netherlands: Dutch consumer confidence stays high in December
December 21, 2016
The seasonally-adjusted consumer confidence indicator produced by Statistics Netherlands in December stayed stable at November’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 households were only marginally less positive about the country’s economic climate and their willingness to buy stayed stable.
