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 February.
