ARLINGTON, Va. — The February Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) shows that contractors continue to feel positive about short-term growth in 2015, according to ACCA.

For February 2015, the CCI scored a 77, revealing that contractors are feeling better than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI ranked at a 72.

The CCI is calculated based on a survey of ACCA’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 greater reflects anticipated growth.

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