From the press release>>

Bloomberg News announced today the launch of the Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index, a weekly, random-sample survey tracking Americans' views on the condition of the U.S. economy, their personal finances and the buying climate. The survey, formerly sponsored by ABC News since 1985, will be released on a weekly basis beginning Thursday, February 17 at 9:45am ET on the Bloomberg Professional service and subsequently on Bloomberg.com.

The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index is produced by Langer Research Associates of New York. Each release includes results among 1,000 randomly selected adults, with breakdowns available by age, race, sex, education, political affiliation and other groups.

In addition to its three measures of current sentiment, the Consumer Comfort data include a monthly gauge of economic expectations, based on the share of Americans who say the economy is getting better, getting worse or staying the same.
