About Consumer Confidence Eurozone
The level of a diffusion index based on surveyed consumers. Released monthly, around 22 days into the current month. Survey of about 2,300 consumers in Eurozone countries which asks respondents to rate the relative level of past and future economic conditions, including personal financial situation, employment, inflation, and climate for major purchases. Above 0 indicates optimism, below indicates pessimism. There are 2 versions of this report released about a week apart – Flash and Final. The Flash release, which the source first reported in Jan 2010, is the earliest and thus tends to have the most impact. The Final is not reported for lack of significance.
