Arizona Business Index (ABI) – What is it?

Arizona took its place on the big stage as it assumed battleground status during the 2020 election cycle and continually absorbs an influx of new residents – both Phoenix and Maricopa County have ranked first in fastest-growing cities and counties. This growth is likely to result in a new congressional seat and an additional electoral vote after the 2020 Census.  

As an accompaniment and support to this new position, the Greater Phoenix Chamber and OH Predictive Insights partnered to bring Arizona’s business, political, and education communities the Arizona Business Index™ (ABI), a barometer of the health of the Arizona economy from the perspective of the Arizona consumer. 

The Index provides robust data that breaks down over 2,000 demographic combinations ranging from suburban moms and millennials in the workforce to homeowners and renters. Information from the Index provides insight into public opinion regarding housing, automobile sales, the job market, the economy, and the personal credit card debt of Arizonans. An observer will be able to see when there is a shift in consumer sentiment and, in return, expect a change in economic activity.
