European Commission's picture
Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

In June 2014 the Business Climate Indicator (BCI) for the euro area decreased by 0.14 points to +0.22. Managers' evaluation of all five components of the BCI deteriorated. Caution increased in particular with regard to the level of past production, production expectations and overall order books. Export order books and the stocks of finished products were assessed only slightly more negatively.

The BCI is based on a factor analysis of the euro area aggregate balances (seasonally adjusted) of five of the monthly questions in the industry survey (only employment and selling-price expectations are excluded).

The next BCI results are due to be published on 30 July 2014.
