ARLINGTON, Va. — ACCA’s September Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) shows that contractors’ outlook on short-term growth is remaining positive as contractors head into fall. For September 2015, the CCI scored a 74. The CCI also shows that contractors are feeling about the same regarding short-term growth as they were 12 months earlier when the CCI registered a 75.

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.
