Consumer Confidence Dips Again in March

It’s time for another update of our interactive chart of Consumer Confidence. You can drag the time sliders below the chart to view data going all the way back to 1998.

Here’s the data as of March:

At 57.9, the Present Situation Index has gained 187% from its December 2009 low point, but fell 6% from its February level. The index is at roughly the same place it was in September 2008. The expectations index also fell in March, dropping 16% from its February level.

It will be interesting to see if the ongoing “sequestration” cuts combined with the increasingly noisy posturing from North Korea have an effect on Consumer Confidence this month.
