The Dutch consumer confidence index declined to 15 in October 2018 from 19 in the previous month. It was the lowest reading since September 2016 due to a deterioration in households' assessment towards the economic climate (28 vs 34 in September), as consumers were less positive regarding the economic situation in the past 12 months (37 vs 42) and in the next 12 months (19 vs 26). In addition, the willingness to buy dropped (6 vs 8), as households' sentiment on their financial situation over the next year was less positive (5 vs 7) and their intentions to make large purchases softened a bit (15 vs 17). Consumer Confidence in Netherlands averaged 0.83 Index Points from 1986 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 36 Index Points in January of 2000 and a record low of -41 Index Points in February of 2013.

Netherlands Consumer Confidence

In the Netherlands, the Consumer Confidence survey is made by phone and covers 1,000 households. The questions cover the consumer’s assessments on national economy and own financial situation for the past 12 months and expectations for the coming 12 months. The index is then calculated as a difference between the percentage of participants that are optimistic and the share that is pessimistic. Therefore, the index takes a value between -100 (all respondents assess their situation as poor and expect it to become worse) and 100 (all participants are satisfied with the current situation and expect it to improve); 0 indicates neutrality.
