United States IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index  2001-2017 | Data | Chart

The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index rose to 55.6 in January 2017 from 54.8 in December. It was the highest figure since November 2006, as confidence in the outlook got a jolt from the presidential election and the subsequent stock-market rally. The personal financial outlook index gained 2.5 points to 62.3. The measure of confidence in federal economic policies edged up 0.2 point to 48.5, close to breaking into optimistic territory for the first time since February 2007. Meanwhile, the six-month economic outlook declined 0.3 points to 56, as a result of the Fed's rate hike and some Fed officials' suggestion that three rate hikes, rather than two, might be appropriate for 2017. Economic Optimism Index in the United States averaged 49.01 from 2001 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 62.90 in March of 2002 and a record low of 35.80 in August of 2011.
