Gallup has a variety of economic surveys that I find interesting.
Here are charts of three that I find especially noteworthy:
Americans' Standard of Living Optimism: (reported November 5, 2010)
U.S. Economic Confidence (reported November 9, 2010)
U.S. Consumer Spending (reported November 11, 2010)
At each link, details of each survey are presented.
These charts, along with other Gallup economic surveys, should be interesting to monitor going forward. Although I believe that (economic) surveys, in general, should be interpreted with caution, these Gallup surveys appear to provide a valuable additional perspective on various economic aspects.
