RBI launches December 2018 Round of Consumer Confidence Survey (CCS) and Inflation Expectations Survey of Households (IESH)
The Reserve Bank of India has launched conducting Consumer Confidence Survey (CCS) and Inflation Expectations Survey of Households (IESH) for December 2018 round.
While the CCS seeks qualitative responses from households, regarding their sentiments on general economic situation, employment scenario, price level, households’ income and spending, the IESH aims at capturing subjective assessments on price movements and inflation, of 6,000 households, based on their individual consumption baskets.
The CCS is conducted regularly in 13 cities viz. Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bhopal, Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Patna and Thiruvananthapuram. The survey covers 5,400 respondents across 13 cities. The results of this survey provide useful information for monetary policy formulation.
The IESH survey is to be conducted in 18 cities viz., Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Nagpur, Patna, Raipur, Ranchi and Thiruvananthapuram. The survey seeks qualitative responses from households on price changes (general prices as well as prices of specific product groups) in the three months ahead as well as in the one year ahead period and quantitative responses on current, three months ahead and one year ahead inflation rates. The results of this survey provide useful information for monetary policy formulation.
The agency M/s Hansa Research Group Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai has been engaged to conduct the field work of this round of the survey on behalf of the Reserve Bank of India. For this purpose, the households will be approached by the agency and the selected households are requested to provide their response. Other individuals who are not approached by the agency can also participate in this survey by providing their responses using the
