Local Consumer Commerce

The Local Consumer Commerce Index (LCCI) is a measure of the monthly year-over-year growth rate of everyday debit and credit card spending by over 59 million anonymized Chase customers across 15 cities in the US. The LCCI is an alternative view of the health and vibrancy of the US consumer and the places where consumers and businesses operate.

Regularly released, the LCCI will continue to describe the economic picture of local communities and provide a powerful tool for city development officials, businesses and investors, and statistical agencies to better understand the everyday economic health of consumers, businesses, and the places they care about.

Local Consumer Commerce — February 2017

Local Consumer Commerce grew 1.2 percent year-over-year between February 2016 and February 2017. Of our 15 cities, only three experienced negative growth rates. For the first time since January 2015, consumers in the highest income quintile made a positive contribution to overall growth, and consumers between the ages of 55 and 64 did not subtract from it. February marks the first month since October 2015 that saw positive growth contributions from small, mid-sized, and large businesses.
