Philippines Consumer Confidence
In Philippines, the Consumer Expectations Survey covers over 5,000 households of which around 50 percent are from the national capital region Metro Manila. The questions address overall conditions of the economy, household finances and household income. The indicator is computed by subtracting the percentage of firms that answer positively from the percentage that answer negatively. The index varies between -100 and 100; a positive value indicates a favorable view, a negative value shows lack of confidence and zero indicates neutrality.
