State Residents See Improving Economy: Survey Finds Out-of-State Moves Less Likely, Plans to Spend on Major Consumer Items, Millennials See Better Business Conditions; Jobs Remain in Short Supply

Seven in 10 Connecticut residents say overall business conditions in the state are either better or the same as six months ago, according to the quarterly Inform CT Consumer Confidence Survey, and 75 percent expect conditions to either remain the same or improve in the next six months. The latest survey, covering the third quarter of 2016, also found residents are more willing to spend on major consumer items – a sign of a strengthening economy – and less concern about immediate job security.
