The Consumer Confidence Index first appeared in the 1960s, measuring consumer attitudes toward current and future economic conditions. Research has shown that the Index can help predict spending on big-ticket purchases such as houses, cars, high-end electronics and other items that may need financing. 

  • The  Texas region’s (Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma) January Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) topped out at 90.8, a 26 percent increase from the January 2010 Index. The Texas region’s CCI last eclipsed the 90 mark back in September 2008. 

Our weekly Tracking the Texas Economy updates feature snapshots of Texas economic indicators, including housing, industrial production, employment and more. As a part of the Comptroller’s Texas Ahead website, it’s a great source of data allowing you to follow changes in the state’s economy. Texas Ahead also features the Texas 100 Stock Index, production and consumption data and other trends and statistics vital to the Texas economy.

Our Economic Outlook page also contains detailed analysis of Texas taxes, jobs and more. The latest updates include:

  • In the first five months of fiscal 2011, combined natural gas and oil production tax collections rose 70 percent compared with the same period in 2010. By contrast, production tax collections for the first five months of fiscal 2010 were 24 percent lower than the same period in 2009.
