IBD/TIPP Poll For August 2022: Tracking The U.S. Economy With The Economic Optimism Index

The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index tracks Americans' mood on the U.S. economy and the economic outlook of the country.

The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index provides the first monthly reading of consumer confidence and is a reliable indicator of changes in mood in polls conducted by The Conference Board or the University of Michigan. The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index uses a survey conducted by online panels of 1,200 adults to gauge Americans' opinions on the U.S. Economy. The national survey is usually conducted during the first week in each month.

The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index consists of three subindices: one for the respondent’s future outlook in six months, another for their personal financial outlook and a third to gauge how they view current federal policies. Each month, the goal is to provide as accurate a read on the state of the U.S. Economy as possible.

IBD/TIPP produces a Presidential Leadership Index each month at the start of the month.
