How Financial Leaders View US Economy, AICPA to Show on Sept. 6
The American Institute of CPAs will announce the results of its CPA Outlook Index (CPAOI), an indicator of how chief financial officers, controllers and other senior CPA business leaders view the U.S. economy, at 7 a.m. EDT, Sept. 6.
The survey, which will be posted on the AICPA Press Center, gathers responses from 1,365 senior-level CPAs on future hiring plans, growth in marketing and training, and anticipated fluctuations in different categories of business spending. Survey takers also answered questions on the outlook for their companies in the coming year, as well as the U.S. economy as a whole.
The poll was conducted via email questionnaire from Aug. 15-30. 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.
