The Bloomberg® Consumer Comfort Index™ by Langer Research Associates

The Pitch

Closely followed from the halls of the Fed to the canyons of Wall Street, The Bloomberg® Consumer Comfort Index™ (CCI) is a 32-year-old weekly random-sample survey of Americans’ economic attitudes. More frequent than other leading consumer measures and correlated on a leading basis with key economic variables, the CCI is invaluable in modeling for economists, econometricians, traders and retailers, and as a precise summary of economic attitudes for political and public policy researchers.

Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, called the CCI one of his “five favorite economic indicators.”

Subscription can include a weekly data analysis, a weekly update of the full 32-year CCI spreadsheet, or both. Datasets are available on a separately arranged basis. See samples at http://www.langerresearch.com/the-cci/.

Project Details

Methodology

Quantitative

Topline, crosstab, trend, correlational and regression analyses are included as warranted.

The CCI covers current public attitudes on the national economy, personal finances, and the buying climate, using the same survey questions and methodology since its inception in December 1985. Expectations of the economy’s future are measured separately on a monthly basis.

The weekly CCI analysis is a narrative report summarizing results overall, by subindex, and among groups, in historical context. A table of comparative results is included.

The CCI spreadsheet includes weekly results for the CCI and its subindicies since December 1985 and weekly data since mid-1990 among 11 demographic groups in 37 categories.

Currently delivered to Bloomberg Terminal users, the CCI is available to others by subscription via Collaborata, with the option of delivery either directly from Langer Research Associates or through a subscriber’s FactSet Research Systems or IHS Global Insights data feed.
