The data is compiled from a survey of about 1,200 consumers which asks respondents to rate the relative level of past and future economic conditions.
Usual Effect
A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the AUD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the AUD.
