Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index  
Released On 2/2/2017 9:45:00 AM For wk1/29, 2017
Level45.2 46.6 

The consumer comfort index is back near its post-election high, at 46.6 in the January 29 week. This is up a very sharp 1.4 points from the prior week and compares with the 46.7 high in late December. Strength in consumer confidence readings ultimately reflects strength in the jobs outlook.

The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index is a weekly, random-sample survey tracking Americans' views on the condition of the U.S. economy, their personal finances and the buying climate. Details are available only to subscribers. In May 2014, the series range was changed to zero to 100 from minus 100 to plus 100.
