It constitutes a 1-percent increase compared with October.

Meanwhile 38 percent of the polled indicated that their household's financial situation had worsened, whereas a month ago and in November 2013 the figure stood at 34 percent. Another 50 percent said they did not notice any changes, a 5-percent drop since October and 2-percent drop since November 2013.
