ARLINGTON, Va. — The December Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) showed ACCA contractors closed out 2014 feeling positive about short-term growth.

The CCI registered a 71 in December 2014, revealing contractors are feeling better than they were in December 2013, when the CCI was 67.

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. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.
