A 32-year-old weekly survey of Americans’ economic attitudes, providing an early, accurate, and high-frequency read on consumer sentiment
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.”
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 http://www.langerresearch.com/the-cci.
For more information, including papers on CCI's construction and uses in predictive modeling and charts of its leading correlations with economic and employment data, see http://langerresearch.com/the-CCI.

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.
