What is this indicator?

Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) is a measure of the total amount of money spent by households on goods and services over a given period. It includes everything from food, clothing, and housing to healthcare, education, and entertainment. PCE is reported quarterly by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) and is expressed as a percentage change from the previous quarter.


Why is it important?

PCE is an important economic indicator because it is a key component of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which is a measure of the total output of goods and services in an economy. PCE typically accounts for about two-thirds of GDP, so changes in consumer spending have a significant impact on the overall health of the economy. When PCE is rising, it indicates that consumers are spending more money, which can lead to higher economic growth and job creation. Conversely, a decline in PCE can signal that consumers are cutting back on spending, which can slow down economic growth and lead to job losses. PCE is also closely watched by the Federal Reserve, as it is a key factor in determining inflation. If PCE is rising too quickly, the Fed may raise interest rates to slow down economic growth and keep inflation in check. On the other hand, if PCE is not growing at a fast enough rate, the Fed may lower interest rates to stimulate consumer spending and boost economic growth.
