The NFIB (National Federation of Independent Businesses) releases a monthly Small Business Optimism Index every month. It’s a data-packed report that has showed a very strong run since last November.
While the March report (released in April) continued to show strong numbers, the legislative turbulence is still driving some uncertainty. The April report (released last week), shows the Index dipped 0.2 points April, settling at 104.5. April was the sixth straight month for historically high optimism, a hot streak not seen since 1983.
