NY consumer confidence continues to dip: Siena

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 - 11:17 AM

A new consumer confidence poll from the Siena Research Institute this morning shows New Yorkers' consumer confidence continuing to slide. Overall consumer confidence in the state slid .1 percent to 61.7 points.

“Slightly more New Yorkers now expect to lose ground financially than those that predict they will make economic progress this year and a majority volunteer a negative prognosis for the patient we call 'business conditions,'" said Siena's founding director Doug Lonnstrom in a statement.
