The Contractor Comfort Index (CCI) for June shows that contractors
are continuing to remain positive about short-term growth. ACCA began
measuring contractor attitudes toward short-term economic growth with
the CCI in February 2010.
For June 2012, the CCI is 68. The CCI also shows that contractors
are feeling a little more confident than they were 12 months earlier
when the CCI was 66.
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.
The CCI is released prior to the start of each month; the next index number will be released during the last week of July.
The ACCA is a non-profit association serving more than 60,000
professionals and 4,000 businesses in the HVACR community, who work
together to promote professional contracting, energy efficiency, and
healthy, comfortable indoor environments for all Americans. For more
