In March 2019, the DG ECFIN flash estimate of the consumer confidence indicator
remained broadly stable in both the euro area (0.2 points up) and the EU (0.1 points up).
At −7.2 points (euro area) and −7.1 points (EU), both indicators are well above their
respective long-term averages of −11.3 (euro area) and −10.5 (EU).
