Arizona consumers felt better about the state’s economy in the second quarter of this year than they had in a little while.

The Arizona Business Index looks at a number of factors, including consumer sentiment, housing, job satisfaction and economic optimism.

It found confidence reached a 12-month high in April and grew twice as much between the first and second quarters of this year than between the fourth quarter of last year and first quarter of this year.

To learn about the numbers, The Show spoke with Todd Sanders, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, which releases the index.
