Roy Morgan Indonesian Consumer Confidence virtually unchanged again in June at 150.5 (down 0.2pts)


The monthly Roy Morgan Indonesian Consumer Confidence Rating is based on 2,147 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 June 2017.

Roy Morgan Indonesian Consumer Confidence for June is 150.5 (down 0.2pts). Consumer Confidence is now just below a year ago in June 2016 (150.3) although it is still a large 16.2pts above the long-run average (2005-2017) of 134.3.

Now 38% (unchanged) of Indonesians said their families are ‘better off’ financially than this time a year ago (the equal highest figure for this indicator for over a year since May 2016) compared to 14% (up 3ppts) that said their families are ‘worse off’ financially.

An increasing majority, 68% (up 1ppt), of Indonesians expect their family will be ‘better off’ financially this time next year (the equal highest figure for this indicator for over a year since April 2016) compared to just 4% (down 2ppts) that expect to be ‘worse off’ financially.

In regard to the Indonesian economy now 82% (down 1ppt) of Indonesians expect Indonesia will have ‘good times’ financially during the next 12 months and 17% (up 1ppt) say we’ll have ‘bad times’ financially.

And looking at the longer-term, 91% (down 1ppt) of Indonesians expect Indonesia will have ‘good times’ economically over the next five years and just 8% (unchanged) expect ‘bad times’ economically.

Over half, 57% (up 2ppts) of Indonesians, say ‘now is a good time to buy’ major household items (the equal highest figure for this indicator for over two years since March 2015) and 40% (down 1ppt) say ‘now is a bad time to buy’ major household items.

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

“No change, again. The good news is that Indonesians remain confident and optimistic. The Ahok saga took its toll but the people appear to be taking comfort from the actions of the government in the security, corruption and development arenas. More investment in infrastructure, more signs of progress, more jobs across the country are the only ways to significantly boost confidence even further”.

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.
