ARLINGTON, Va. — ACCA’s December Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) shows that contractors finished 2015 feeling fairly positive about short-term growth.

For December 2015, the CCI scored a 72. Contractors’ opinions remain largely unchanged as one year ago the CCI scored a 71.

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.
