The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index Rebounds In December
The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index, which had been declining since August, rebounded smartly in December. It now stands at 102.3, up significantly from 92.6 in November. The Present Situation Index also snapped to, up almost 10 to 105.9 from 96.3.
Methinks tis the season to be Jolly: “The continuing economic expansion, combined with job growth, has consumers ending the year on a high note,” says Lynn Franco, Director of The Conference Board’s Consumer Research Center. “The most significant contributor to the rebound in confidence has been the overall improvement in current conditions over the past twelve months. And consumers’ outlook suggests that the economy will continue to expand in the first half of the new year.”
