Bloomberg’s Consumer Comfort Index (CCI) – which measures consumer comfort on a scale of zero to 100 – dipped from 42 to 41.4 last week.  It’s not a significant decline, but it stopped three weeks of upward motion.

Produced by Langer Research Associates, CCI data is based on 1,000 national random-sample landline and cellular telephone interviews, 250 per week (in a four-week rolling average).  It’s been compiled weekly since December 1985.
