Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index  
Released On 7/13/2017 9:45:00 AM For wk7/9, 2017
PriorActual
Level48.5 47.0 

Highlights
In the least upbeat reading since January, consumer comfort fell a sharp 1.5 points in the July 9 week to 47.0. This index joins consumer sentiment which, in June, slowed to its lowest reading since November. Consumer spending never did match this year's extraordinarily high readings for confidence and the emerging confidence slump does not point to any spending strength. Watch tomorrow's calendar for key updates on both retail spending and consumer sentiment.

Definition
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.
