Contractors Start 2014 Feeling Positive About Short-Term Growth


Posted on:

The January Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) shows that contractors are continuing to have a positive outlook about short-term growth. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.

For January 2014, the CCI is 69. The CCI also shows that contractors are feeling better about short-term growth than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 60.

The CCI is calculated based on a survey of the association’s contractor members, who are asked how positive they feel about new business prospects, existing business activity, and expected staffing decisions in the short-term future. Weighted and averaged into one number, a CCI of 50 or above reflects anticipated growth.

The CCI is released prior to the start of each month; the next index number will be released during the last week of February.
