Chico Economic Snapshot

The Chico Economic Index provides a snapshot of the Chico economy by using five seasonally adjusted and equally weighted categories- sales tax, transient occupancy tax (TOT), dollar value of building permits issued, employment rate and average housing sales prices- and comparing each category quarterly using the first quarter of 2007 as the base year.

The Chico Business Confidence Survey is a five question, multiple choice survey of how local business owners and managers feel about the prospects of their own companies in the year ahead and how they feel the local and national economies will perform over the next 12 months.
