Video: Why are there conflicting consumer confidence numbers?
Last week's data from a Reuters/University of Michigan survey said consumer confidence was unchanged between February and March. Tuesday's Conference Board data said consumer confidence rebounded from February to March.
Watch the video below to see how consumer confidence is surveyed and why there's a difference between the two reports. (Note: The Conference Board's data came out Tuesday, but I didn't get the video produced until today, so that's why I say "today" in the video.)
