Australia Business Confidence  1997-2016 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Business confidence in Australia decreased to 3 in May from 5 in April of 2016. "The RBA’s cut to interest rates did not help lift business confidence as we had hoped, even as sales activity continues to improve," Alan Oster, NAB’s Chief Economist. “Uncertainty around the upcoming election might be a factor here, but mixed results across industries suggest that other factors are at play,” he added. Business Confidence in Australia averaged 5.74 from 1997 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 20 in April of 2002 and a record low of -30 in October of 2008. Business Confidence in Australia is reported by the National Australia Bank.

The Survey measures the expectations of business conditions for the upcoming month and is a simple average of trading, profitability and employment indices, reported by respondents for their company.
