The results of the household business survey carried out by the Haut-Commissariat au Plan (HCP) for the third quarter of 2021, reveal that 14.8% against 85.2% of households expect to save over the course of the next 12 months.
The balance of opinion relating to this indicator remained negative, at -70.4 points instead of -67.2 points in the previous quarter and -75.1 points in the same quarter of last year, indicates the HCP in its recent information note on the results of this survey. The said note also highlights that 87.5% of households declare that the prices of food products have increased over the last 12 months against a minimal proportion of households (0.6%) who feel their decrease. The balance of opinion thus remained negative, at -86.9 points, after having been -86.8 points the previous quarter and -75.1 points a year earlier.
In addition, the HCP notes that over the next 12 months, food prices should continue to increase according to 73% of households against only 2.1% who expect them to decline.
