Economic confidence falls in November
ANKARA- Anadolu Agency
The index decreased by 3.5% to reach 89.5 in November, down from 92.8 in October, the Turkish Statistical Institute (TÜİK) said.
“This decrease in economic confidence index stemmed from the decreases in consumer, real sector (manufacturing industry), services and construction confidence indices,” TÜİK said.
Among sub-indices, services, real sector, consumer, and construction confidence indices were down on a monthly basis.
The retail trade index, meanwhile, remained unchanged at 95 in November.
The consumer confidence index, calculated from survey results, is evaluated within a range of 0-200, indicating an optimistic outlook when the index is above 100, and a pessimistic one when it is below.
