    March 2018 showed signs of improvements in consumer confidence across all three indicators. The Consumer Sentiment Index (Chart 1) increased to 108.1, rising by 2.8 index points on a monthly basis. The major gain in positive sentiment for March was driven primarily by an improved outlook for the labour market, although attitudes towards future financial circumstances and major purchases also played a role. Expectations of future growth and perceptions of current financial circumstances were weaker.
