Share of people who judge the economy of their country as GOOD

Close to half of Europeans think that the current situation of their national economy is ‘good’ (46%, +5 percentage points since autumn 2016). This proportion has increased significantly in recent years (+20 since spring 2013, and +26 since spring 2009). Conversely, 51% of Europeans describe it as ‘bad’ (-5), and 3% (unchanged) answer that they “don’t know”.

 


There are substantial variations between Member States, and 89 points separate the Netherlands, where 91% of the population say that the situation of the national economy is good (+10 percentage points since autumn 2016), from Greece, where only 2% do so (-1 since autumn 2016). A majority of respondents say that the national economic situation is good in 14 countries (up from ten in autumn 2016), with the highest scores in the Netherlands (91%), Luxembourg (90%), and Germany (90%). More than eight in ten respondents also hold this view in Sweden (88%), Malta (86%) and Denmark (86%). At the other end of the scale, the lowest proportions of ‘good’ answers are recorded in Greece (2%), Croatia (12%), Italy (13%), Spain (14%) and Bulgaria (15%).
