Highlights
Inflation expectations remain low but are improving, up 1 tenth in December to a year-on-year 2.1 percent for the Atlanta Fed's business measure. This is the best reading of the expansion that was last matched in March and follows the prior week's 3 tenths jump in inflation expectations in the consumer sentiment report which rose an outsized 3 tenths to what is also, however, still a soft level at 2.8 percent.

Definition
The Atlanta Fed's Business Inflation Expectations survey provides a monthly measure of year-ahead inflation expectations and inflation uncertainty from the perspective of firms. The survey also provides a monthly gauge of firms' current sales, profit margins, and unit cost changes.  Why Investors Care
