    The Survey of Consumers is an ongoing nationally representative survey based on approximately 500 telephone interviews with adult men and women living in households in the coterminous United States (48 States plus the District of Columbia). The Michigan sentiment index includes two major components, a "current conditions" component and an "expectations" component. The current conditions component index is based on the answers to two standard questions and the expectations component index is based on three standard questions. All five questions have equal weight in determining the overall index.
