CONSUMER SENTIMENT INDEX

BEBR’s Survey Research Center conducts the monthly Florida Consumer Sentiment Index (CSI) survey which measures consumer’s opinions in various areas of interest. These survey results are then utilized to create the monthly CSI report, which serves to bridge data together by providing insights into future business conditions, consumer attitudes, buying intentions, and inflation expectations. Each CSI report offers a comprehensive overview of the evolving consumer landscape and insight into potential trends for the months ahead.

Method of Surveying

Approximately 250 of Florida’s adult residents are surveyed each month by telephone and online to gather data for the Florida Consumer Sentiment Index.

Eligibility

Eligibility is determined by confirming if potential participants are 18 years of age or older and ensuring individuals live in a private residence within Florida.

Survey Standards

A maximum of five attempts per record is made, and interviews are conducted in both English and Spanish. Survey length is approximately 12 minutes.
