Roy Morgan Indonesian Consumer Confidence virtually unchanged in May at 150.7 (down 0.3pts)

The monthly Roy Morgan Indonesian Consumer Confidence Rating is based on 2,140 face-to-face interviews conducted throughout Indonesia, not just a handful of cities. The survey includes the Top 22 cities, smaller cities and towns as well as many more villages in the rural hinterland, reflecting all of Indonesia. Women & men aged 14 and over were randomly selected during the month of May 2017.

Roy Morgan Indonesian Consumer Confidence for May is 150.7 (down 0.3pts). Consumer Confidence is now just above a year ago in May 2016 (149.7) and is still a large 16.4pts above the long-run average (2005-2017) of 134.3.

Now 38% (up 1ppt) of Indonesians said their families are ‘better off’ financially than this time a year ago compared to 11% (down 1ppt) that said their families are ‘worse off’ financially.

An increasing majority, 67% (up 1ppt), of Indonesians expect their family will be ‘better off’ financially this time next year compared to just 6% (up 1ppt) that expect to be ‘worse off’ financially.

In regard to the Indonesian economy now 83% (unchanged) of Indonesians expect Indonesia will have ‘good times’ financially during the next 12 months and 16% (down 1ppt) say we’ll have ‘bad times’ financially.

And looking at the longer-term, 92% (down 1ppt) of Indonesians expect Indonesia will have ‘good times’ economically over the next five years and just 8% (up 1ppt) expect ‘bad times’ economically.

Over half, 55% (down 1ppt) of Indonesians, say ‘now is a good time to buy’ major household items and 41% (up 2ppts) say ‘now is a bad time to buy’ major household items.

Ira Soekirman, Director, Roy Morgan Research Indonesia, says:

"Consumer Confidence is holding steady, at a high. The mood reflects the state of the economy. Unless significant new FDI adds a boost to more infrastructure development, more investment in new sectors like Tourism, no significant changes for the better are foreseeable in the near term".

Margin of Error

The margin of error to be allowed for in any estimate depends mainly on the number of interviews on which it is based. The following table gives indications of the likely range within which estimates would be 95% likely to fall, expressed as the number of percentage points above or below the actual estimate. The figures are approximate and for general guidance only, and assume a simple random sample. Allowance for design effects (such as stratification and weighting) should be made as appropriate.
