Anchorage Consumer Optimism Index: Q2 2023
The Anchorage Consumer Optimism Index is a survey of ~600 Anchorage residents using the Alaska Consumer Optimism Index survey tool.
The survey was performed by Alaska Survey Research and the report was generated by the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation. This work was made possible by the report sponsor, Furniture Enterprises of Alaska.
That’s up 0.6 from the second quarter of 2022, but down 10.5 from Q2 2021.
The Index combines 3 components of consumer sentiment which are scored on a 100 point scale. Results above 50 indicate optimism and results below 50 indicate pessimism.
At 43.9, the ANCi remains in less than enthusiastic territory. Following modest gains in Q4 2022 and Q1 2023, Q2 2023 essentially rolled back the second quarter of those gains, matching consumer sentiment from Q4 2022.
