ARLINGTON, Va. — The March Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) shows that contractors’ positive outlook on short-term growth is continuing at the start of spring.
The CCI scored a 79 in March 2015, which reveals contractors are feeling better than they were 12 months earlier when the CCI was 73.
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 above reflects anticipated growth. ACCA began measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with the CCI in February 2010.
