Belgium Consumer Confidence
In Belgium, the consumer confidence indicator supplies concise information on consumers’ confidence regarding the progress of the economy. The index is based on a monthly telephone survey of more than 1,000 consumers on their outlook for the country's job and economic prospects as well as their own financial situation and ability to save money. The index is the balance of positive and negative replies, with a figure of zero meaning Belgians are evenly split on whether things will improve or worsen for consumers in the next year.
