Dutch Consumer Sentiment Unchanged
The Dutch consumer confidence index stood at -2 in March 2020, the same as in the previous month, as the effects of the measures against the spread of coronavirus are still not being reflected in the consumer confidence measurements for March. Opinions on the economic climate in the next 12 months deteriorated significantly, but this was compensated by an improvement in opinions on the economic situation over the past 12 months and a slight increase in consumers’ willingness to buy.

Netherlands Consumer Confidence
In the Netherlands, the Consumer Confidence survey is made by phone and covers 1,000 households. The questions cover the consumer’s assessments on national economy and own financial situation for the past 12 months and expectations for the coming 12 months. The index is then calculated as a difference between the percentage of participants that are optimistic and the share that is pessimistic. Therefore, the index takes a value between -100 (all respondents assess their situation as poor and expect it to become worse) and 100 (all participants are satisfied with the current situation and expect it to improve); 0 indicates neutrality.
