Definition
Gallup's Economic Confidence Index is a composite of two questions that Gallup asks daily of a nationally representative sample of 500 adults and reports weekly based on approximately 3,500 interviews. The first asks Americans to evaluate current economic conditions and the other measures their perceptions of whether the economy is getting better or getting worse. The two questions have equal weight in the index. The survey is conducted with respondents contacted on landlines and cellphones.  Why Investors Care
