Australia Consumer Confidence  1974-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The Westpac-Melbourne Institute Consumer Sentiment Index for Australia declined 1.7 percent month-on-month to 99.7 in November of 2017 as pessimists again outnumber optimists after a short-lived climb. The headline’s drop was mainly explained by a sharp fall in economic conditions for the next months (96.2 versus 102.6 in October). Economic conditions for the next 5 years also declined (93.2 vs 95.2). In contrast, family finances for the next 12 months (105.4 vs 102.4) and from a year ago (84.8 vs 83.7) both improved in November. “Economic uncertainty again featured in November, likely affected by the ‘citizenship saga’ impacting Federal Parliament,” said Westpac’s chief economist, Bill Evans. Consumer Confidence in Australia averaged 101.32 from 1974 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 123.94 in May of 2007 and a record low of 64.61 in November of 1990.
