Consumer Confidence Index
Summary & Interactive Data
The Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development’s (OECD) Consumer Confidence Index provides an indication of future developments of households’ consumption and saving, based upon answers regarding their expected financial situation, their sentiment about the general economic situation, unemployment and capability of savings. An indicator above 100 signals a boost in the consumers’ confidence towards the future economic situation, as a consequence of which they are less prone to save, and more inclined to spend money on major purchases in the next 12 months. Values below 100 indicate a pessimistic attitude towards future developments in the economy, possibly resulting in a tendency to save more and consume less.
Just like the other sections of this dashboard, static and interactive features are available on this page. You will find navigation on the left hand side support bar to allow easy movement between the pages of the economy dashboard as well as to other sections of the dashboard.
These data sets are more complicated so we have provided a list of key terms, accessible on every page, for clarity. As will be noted throughout this dashboard, some data sets have a lag time showing the impacts of COVID-19.
Data Source: OECD (2020), Consumer confidence index (CCI) (indicator). doi: 10.1787/46434d78-en (Accessed monthly beginning 30 April 2020)
This data set is available two geographic levels – OECD (global) and USA (national). To select a data set, click on OECD or USA, and the active data set will be in orange.
The data cards below show information about the previous month, the current month and the percent change between the two, providing a quick reference to how consumer confidence is faring. A percent change in green with a yellow arrow indicates the indicator is moving in a positive direction for the economy. A percent change in yellow with a red arrow indicates the indicator is moving in a negative direction.
To interact with the data, select the geographic level by using the Category drop-down box then click on one or more of the elements in the bar charts. All other charts will adjust based on the data points you chose. The 1-12 labels on the X axis of the graph stand for the number of the month, meaning 1=January and 12=December.
Single elements can be de-selected individually by clicking them again. Click on the “Reset All” button to start anew. To download the data behind the dashboard, click on the export button just below the charts and graphs.
