The Consumer Activity Index allows us to understand during which period there is an increase in demand by the population for goods and services and, in general, how people’s consumption changes over time. The Index is calculated as the ratio of all consumer expenditures (payment using Jusan Bank cards) to the number of unique customers who carry out transactions in a given period (week). Consumer expenses during the most active periods of last year were taken as the Index 100 value. And in our case, it is in September and December.
If the Index is above 100, then household consumption is growing during this time and the demand is increasing in the market relative to last year, which may create additional pressure on prices.
Interactive chart related to the dynamics of Consumer Activity Index is shown below. We recommend you using the desktop version of the browser or switching to the “PC Version” from the mobile version for comfortable reading. The setting can be found in the mobile browser menu – three dots in the right corner.
