CPA Outlook Index To Be Released June 4

The AICPA will announce the results of its CPA Outlook Index, a measure of sentiment about the U.S. economy and key business performance categories for the coming year on June 4. The AICPA survey is a forward-looking indicator that tracks the hiring expectations of CEOs, CFOs, controllers and other senior-level CPAs over the next 12 months.

The survey results, which will be posted on the AICPA Press Center, also include information on future plans for growth in marketing, training and business expansion, as well as anticipated fluctuations in different categories of business spending.

The poll was conducted from May 12-27. The quarterly CPAOI measures the views of CPAs serving in business and industry who are closest to the finances of their companies and hold well-informed, sophisticated views of the economy.
