Penta-CivicScience Economic Sentiment Index

Measure economic expectations and sentiment in real-time


The Penta-CivicScience Economic Sentiment Index (ESI) is a “living” index that measures U.S. adults’ expectations for the economy going forward, as well as their feelings about current conditions for major purchases. The primary goal of the Index is to accurately measure movements in overall national economic sentiment and to provide a more sophisticated alternative to existing economic sentiment indices.

Unlike other prominent indices that release consumer sentiment estimates infrequently, the Penta-CivicScience Index is updated in real-time as responses are collected continuously every hour, every day. Large-scale cross-tabulation of survey responses and consumer attributes enables more granular analyses than are currently possible through prevailing measures.
