Consumer confidence in the overall economy remained level in December, while confidence in consumer electronics (CE) and technology declined from last month's record high, according to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and CNET.
The CEA-CNET Indexes are comprised of the ICE and ICTE, both of which are updated on a monthly basis through consumer surveys.
The CEA-CNET Index of Consumer Expectations (ICE) reached 165.2 in December, unchanged from November. The ICE, which measures consumer expectations about the broader economy, is down 2.7 points from this time last year.
Consumer confidence in technology and CE dropped nearly seven points this month to 86.8. The CEA-CNET Index of Consumer Technology Expectations (ICTE), is up 8.5 points from this time last year and is at the second highest level of the year. The ICTE measures consumer confidence in technology and consumer electronics.
