Australia Consumer Sentiment Deteriorates in December
The Melbourne Institute and Westpac Bank Consumer Sentiment Index for Australia declined 1.9 percent month-over-month to 95.1 in December 2019, as all five major subindexes fell: finances from a year ago (-3.6 percent to 81.4); and for the next five years (-0.5 percent to 98.1); economic conditions for the next five years (-2.4 percent to 91.2); and for the next year (-1.1 percent to 89.6); and time to buy a major household item (-2.1 percent to 115.4). Additionally, the Westpac-Melbourne Institute Unemployment Expectations Index went up 1.1 percent to 138, its highest level since June 2017, as consumers expect unemployment to rise in the year ahead amid a slowdown in jobs growth and steady increases in jobless and underemployment rates.

Australia Consumer Confidence Rebounds
The Melbourne Institute and Westpac Bank Consumer Sentiment Index for Australia rebounded 4.5 percent month-over-month from its lowest level since July 2015 to 97.0 in November 2019, as interest rates kept steady in the last RBA meeting; trade policy uncertainty improved marginally, and prospects of a lower personal income taxes lifted sentiment. Family finances for the next 12 months jumped the most (+5.7% to 98.6); while time to buy a major household item rose 3% to 117.9, well below its long run average and suggesting consumers will be keeping a tight rein on discretionary spending. Economic conditions for the next 12 months and 5 years increased 4% and 5.2% to 90.6 and 93.5 points, respectively. Meantime, the Westpac-Melbourne Institute Unemployment Expectations Index went up 3.6% to 136.5, its highest reading since June 2017, as consumers expect unemployment to rise in the year ahead amid a slowdown in jobs growth and steady increases in jobless and underemployment rates.

The Melbourne Institute and Westpac Bank Consumer Sentiment Index for Australia plunged 5.5 percent month-over-month to 92.8 in October 2019, reaching its lowest level since July 2015.

Australia Consumer Sentiment Falls Further
The Melbourne Institute and Westpac Bank Consumer Sentiment Index for Australia dropped by 1.7 percent over a month earlier to 98.2 in September 2019 from 100 in August.

The survey's measure of economic conditions for the next 12 months (92.6 from 95.5 in August), the gauge of family finances compared to a year ago (84.3 from 86.5) and personal finances expectations (96.9 from 99.1) dropped. In addition, the index of whether it was a good time to buy a major household item decreased to 123.3 from 126.9 in August.

Australia Consumer Sentiment Rebounds

Australia Consumer Sentiment at 2-Year Low
The Melbourne Institute and Westpac Bank Consumer Sentiment Index for Australia declined by 4.1 percent month-over-month to 96.5 in July 2019 from 101.3 in the previous month. It was the lowest reading since August 2017, as concerns regarding the Australian economy outlook and prospects for family finances outweighed any near term support from the prospect of lower interest rates and tax relief. The survey's measure of economic conditions for the next 12 months slumped 12.3 percent, the weakest level in four years, and the index of family finances over the next 12 months tumbled 8 percent, moving back into net pessimistic territory for the first time since late 2017. Also, the economic outlook for the next five years fell by 6.7 percent, amid rising fears of job loss (5.8 percent). Meanwhile, the gauge of family finances compared to a year ago advanced 3 percent to a five-month high and the index of whether it was a good time to buy a major household item rose 3.6 percent.
