New Zealand Consumer Confidence
In New Zealand, the Westpac McDermott Miller Consumer Confidence Index measures the level of optimism that consumers have about the performance of the economy. The Consumer Confidence Index is calculated from percentage response to five internationally standardized questions covering consumers' personal financial circumstances, national economic expectations and attitudes to major purchases. It is 100 plus the average of the difference between positive answers and negative responses. A score above 100 shows more optimism than pessimism while a score below 100 denotes more pessimism. .

New Zealand Consumer Sentiment Down to 1-Year Low
The Westpac-McDermott Miller consumer confidence index in New Zealand fell by 4.4 points to 102.7 in the third quarter of 2021 from 107.1 in the previous quarter.
