27%

According to Sofinscope - Sofinco's* survey of French people's consumption and day-to-day concerns - this is the percentage of French people who claim to be spending less on outings because of the economic situation.

In 2011, at the height of the crisis, that figure stood at 40%.

  

Clearly, the purse strings now seem to be loosening somewhat. The survey also shows that the French have taken up new consumer practices to optimise their budgets, such as taking advantage of lower prices on internet, the collaborative economy (buying second-hand or borrowing goods), and thinking about leasing rather than purchasing.

Lastly, the French people surveyed said they would like to take advantage of the stabilisation of the economy and save more.
