The household expectations sub-index declined to -17 in April from -16 in January, while the expected unemployment sub-index was up to 70 from 68.
The sub-index that measures price trends in the past twelve months climbed to 7 in April from -4 in January, while the sub-index for expected price trends increased to 22 from 16.
