The Lowe Institute of Political Economy at Claremont McKenna College, in partnership with Chapman University and Cadence, produce five consumer sentiment indices for the following geographic regions: 1) California; 2) Los Angeles Metropolitan Area; 3) Los Angeles County, 4) Orange County; and 5) Inland Empire (Riverside and San Bernardino Counties). The Indices are constructed from the responses of 500 randomly selected individuals in each of the respective regions. Participants in the survey answer seven questions. The responses from the survey are then used to construct the indices. Click here to learn more about how the indices are constructed.
