ARLINGTON, Va. — ACCA’s Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) scored an 81 in April — an all-time high. The score 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 in April 2013 was 71. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.
