Consumer Sentiment Indexes

The CEA-CNET Consumer Sentiment Indexes represent more than three years of research into cutting-edge methods for measuring consumer expectations about the future. The indexes measure how consumers perceive the overall health of the economy and the outlook for technology spending. Both indexes focus on consumer perceptions of the future. These forward looking expectations provide market observers valuable information into how consumers will likely behave over the pursuing months.

The CEA-CNET Consumer Sentiment Indexes were again mixed in January. Overall sentiment as measured by the CEA-CNET Index of Consumer Expectations increased by 4.7 percent and spending intentions on technology fell by 3.3 percent roughly consistent with calendar fluctuations.
