Haushaltskrisenbarometer (Household Crisis Barometer)

The Haushaltskrisenbarometer (Household Crisis Barometer) is carried out by a cooperation between the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE, Nielsen-Frankfurt, and the Chair of Finance and Economics at the Goethe University Frankfurt. The core element is the evaluation of jointly developed questions that are asked to the households of the Nielsen Consumer Panel every four weeks. The large number of households continuously surveyed and the possibility of making the answers representative by means of statistical methods provide a reliable and timely picture of the economic situation, consumer behavior, and expectations of the entire population in Germany. This is enriched by insights into actual purchasing behavior based on the purchases recorded for all households and by linking these observations with further research results and background information.
