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 — April 2017

Local Consumer Commerce grew 3.6 percent year over year between April 2016 and April 2017. Out of our 15 cities, only Atlanta and Seattle experienced negative growth rates. Consumers 65 and older did not subtract from growth in April 2017, the first time this has occurred since September 2014. For the third month in a row, all consumers regardless of income quintile contributed to growth. Spending on non-durable goods contributed 1.2 percentage points to growth this month, the largest growth contribution of all product types and a significant bump from the 0.3 percentage point subtraction from growth experienced in March 2017.
