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


  • Provide an ongoing, accurate measure of consumer sentiment to economic, trading, and retailing modelers and political and public policy analysts


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. 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
