Index of Consumer Confidence: October 2012
The monthly Index of Consumer Confidence is constructed from responses to four attitudinal questions posed to a random sample of Canadian households.
After posting a 6.7 point jump in September, the Index of Consumer
Confidence fell 1.1 points to 81.1 (2002 = 100) in October. The survey
followed on the heels of a better-than-expected jobs report, and
respondents indicated that they were feeling slightly more optimistic about
their future job prospects.
