Australia Consumer Confidence  1974-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The Westpac Melbourne Institute Index of Consumer Sentiment in Australia declined 2.3 percent from the previous month to 102.7 in February 2018. It was the first decline in three months, amid recent volatility in global financial markets and a modest fall in commodity prices. The sub-index of personal finances compared to a year ago dropped by 4.5 percent and confidence for the next 12 months dipped by 3.1. “Extensive media coverage of these developments would have unnerved respondents on two fronts – the impact on their own financial position and concerns for general global stability,” said Westpac chief economist Bill Evans. Consumer Confidence in Australia averaged 101.33 Index Points from 1974 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 123.94 Index Points in May of 2007 and a record low of 64.61 Index Points in November of 1990.
