Survey says Anchorage remains optimistic

In 2015 Q2, ANCi fell amid concerns about the economy, dropping to 57.0 from the first quarter’s reading of 58.3. The more stable six-month moving average of the index fell, as well, dropping to 57.6 from 58.2. The six-month moving average has now fallen in each of the last three quarters. Both measures now sit at their lowest level since Q3 2011.

Sponsored by KeyBank and produced by Northern Economics, Inc., on behalf of the Anchorage Economic Development Corp., the ANCi measures the confidence of Anchorage households in the health of the local economy, their personal financial situation and expectations for the future. Data for the report is collected from a random sample of 350 households in the Municipality of Anchorage. Any value above 50 reflects a generally optimistic population and values closer to 100 indicate even stronger levels of confidence.
