Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index  
Released On 7/27/2017 9:45:00 AM For wk7/23, 2017
PriorActual
Level47.6 48.6 

Highlights
The consumer comfort index has been unusually bumpy, rising 1 point in the July 23 week to a 48.6 level that is now safely above the 9-month low of 47.0 that was hit back in the July 9 week. Readings on consumer spirits all show optimism but have been mixed including this report and a falling consumer sentiment report that is offset by outstanding strength in the consumer confidence report.

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.
