"The findings in the Nielsen Global Survey of Consumer Confidence and Spending Intentions are based on respondents with online access across sixty countries. While an online survey methodology allows for tremendous scale and global reach, it provides a perspective only on the habits of existing Internet users, not total populations. In developing markets where online penetration has not reached majority potential, audiences may be younger and more affluent than the general population of that country. Additionally, survey responses are based on claimed behavior, rather than actual metered data. The latest edition was conducted between August 14 and September 6, 2013 and polled more than 30,000 online consumers. The sample has quotas based on age and sex for each country based on their Internet users, and is weighted to be representative of Internet consumers and has a maximum margin of error of ±0.6 percent."

A reading above 100 indicates optimism, while a reading below 100 indicates pessimism.
