The February Contractor Comfort Index shows that contractors continue to feel positive about short-term growth. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.
For February 2015, the CCI is 77. The CCI also shows that contractors are feeling better than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 72.
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.
