Warning: From now on, the business climate indicators in retail trade and in services are estimated using a new method (cf. related methodological notes).
In June 2016, the business climate indicator has fallen back. The composite indicator, compiled from the answers of business managers in the main sectors, has lost two points and has returned to its long-term average (100). The climate has lost three points in services, two points in manufacturing and one point in retail trade. It is stable in building construction.
French business climate composite indicator
Compared to its first estimate, the business climate in France is unchanged. Nonetheless, the business climate indicator in retail trade has been lowered by two points while the indicator in services has been raised by one point. Those revisions are due on the one hand to methodological changes and on the other hand to the update of the seasonal adjustment coefficients.
