The Turkish Statistical Institute (TUIK) released its confidence indexes for Turkey’s services, construction and retail sectors for July on their website. Since January 2014, the Institute has started to publish sectoral confidence indices on a seasonally adjusted basis in order to provide more reliable comparisons between consecutive periods.

The confidence index for the service sector increased 1.4% on the month to post a reading of 100.69 in July because of an increased number of managers expecting stronger demand-turnover data over the next three months. An increased number of managers are judging their business situation to have deteriorated over the past three months while the demand-turnover data has decreased over the past three months.

The retail trade confidence index also posted an increase of 0.7% on the month to a reading of 104.45 in July because of an increased number of managers evaluating their current volume of stock as below normal considering the season and anticipations of an increase in the reading of a business activity- sales measurement for the next three months.

However, the construction sector confidence index dropped 2.8% to a reading of 82.33 in July due to an increased number of managers judging their current overall order books as below the seasonal average and expecting a decrease in total employment over the next three months.

Any reading above 100 indicates an optimistic outlook while readings below 100 indicate a pessimistic outlook.
