Consumer confidence eroding in D.C.

By Lori Aratani

Consumer confidence in the D.C. region has stalled, according to the results of the Greater Washington Board of Trade Mid-Year Consumer Confidence Survey, the Washington Business Journal reports.

Survey results show that concern about the employment market is holding back overall consumer confidence in the region -- after an 18-month growth period -- with 61 percent of the respondents saying that jobs in the area are “scarce” and hard to find.
