UK: February sees Consumer Confidence stay at the same level

28.02.2014

GfK’s UK Consumer Confidence Index has stayed the same this month at -7. Of the five measures used to calculate the Index Score, two measures have decreased this month, two measures have seen increases and one measure has stayed at the same level.

Nick Moon, Managing Director of Social Research at GfK, comments: “After the substantial six point rise in the Index last month, holding steady, rather than any form of correction, is good news. Just a year ago the Index stood at -26, so the current level is massively better. Taking the whole history of the Index from 1974, the current level is slightly ahead of the lifetime average of -9.”
