Netherlands Consumer Confidence December 2016


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.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists see private consumption expanding 1.4% in 2017, which is unchanged from last month’s estimate. In 2018, the panel expects private consumption to accelerate and grow 1.6%.
