WE'RE STILL IN A RECESSION

Rasmussen Consumer Index

50% Consumers and Investors Agree U.S. in Recession

Saturday, September 21, 2013

The Rasmussen Consumer Index, which measures consumer confidence on a daily basis, is down four points on Saturday at 97. Consumer confidence is down five points from a week ago, two point from a month ago, and is down eight points from three months ago.

The Rasmussen Investor Index also dropped by six points on Saturday to 110.0. Investor confidence is down five points from a week ago but is up one points from a month ago. The index is down ten points from three months ago.

Fifty percent (50%) of both consumers and investors believe the U.S. is in a recession. However, 30% of consumer and 37% of investors disagree.

The Rasmussen Consumer Index and Investor Indexes are derived from nightly telephone surveys of 500 adults and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The baseline for the Index was established at 100.0 in October 2001. Readings above 100.0 indicate that confidence is higher than in the baseline month.
