Irish consumer concerns switch from pandemic to inflation and war in Ukraine

This wave of the B&A Consumer Confidence Barometer was conducted from the 3rd-14th of March.

Consumer confidence sees a further significant drop in March due to high inflation and concerns over the war in Ukraine. Consumer confidence is now at -52, down from -33 in February and at its lowest level for more than a year.

Survey results are based on a sample of 1,011 adults aged 16+, quota controlled in terms of age, gender, socio-economic class, and region to reflect the profile of the adult population of the Republic of Ireland. All interviewing on this wave was conducted via B&A’s Acumen online barometer.
