  • Each month, our Monthly Consumer Update analyzes key metrics that reflect consumer demand in the US, the UK and China. We focus on direct, leading indicators of the health of the consumer economy: wage growth, price changes and retail sales growth.
  • In the US in March 2021, inflation increased to 2.6% in March from 1.7% in February. Nominal wage growth accelerated to 6.7% in March, from 5.8% in February. The year-over-year change remains high due to job losses among lower-paid workers.
