Survey: CT residents more upbeat about economy, business growth
4 Sep 2018
Connecticut residents are becoming more optimistic about the state's economy, and job and business environment, according to a new survey.
About 77 percent of state residents surveyed recently by InformCT, a public-private, nonpartisan research group, said the local business climate has improved or remained the same over the last six months. That represents the survey's highest percentage of optimism since 2016.
Seventy-six percent of residents said they believe the business environment in Connecticut will be better, or about the same, by year-end. This also marks the fourth consecutive quarter for positive outlook, with just 24 percent claiming the state's business climate will dip in the six months ahead.
