ARLINGTON, Va. — The June ACCA Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) scored an 85, showing that contractors’ positive outlook on short-term growth is continuing as the weather heats up. The CCI also showed that contractors are feeling better than they were 12 months earlier, when the CCI scored an 81.

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.
