June 2024 shows steady progress in the US economy but a shift in consumer mindset towards caution to spend

Zeta Global, the AI-Powered Marketing Cloud, launched the Zeta Economic Index (ZEI), a next-generation indicator of the state of the US economy. Utilizing Zeta’s proprietary data and cutting-edge Generative AI technology, the ZEI analyzes consumer behavior, assesses the state of the US economy and forecasts economic trends.

“We’ve been using the power of our Data Cloud with great success and now we’re excited to bring to market a differentiated economic index that is based on actual consumer behavior, not just sentiment, and uses cutting-edge Generative AI to deliver a real-time pulse on the US consumer and economy.”

Since 2018, Zeta’s innovative Data Cloud has provided AI-driven intelligence to the world’s leading enterprises, enabling them to understand drivers of consumer behavior and opportunities for growth and retention in a turbulent market. Building on this foundation of predictive analytics that shape decision-making, the ZEI provides a real-time snapshot of the macroeconomic landscape, enhancing the understanding of the key drivers of economic growth – consumer activity in the most sensitive vertical markets.

The ZEI utilizes technology, assets and tools that are unique to Zeta and valuable for their predictive power:

  • An identity graph of more than 240 million adults in the US.
  • An intelligence graph encompassing trillions of behavioral signals across digital, transactional and environmental elements.
  • Generative AI agents to synthesize real-time intelligence into index scores across eight verticals, including automotive, dining, entertainment, financial services, healthcare, retail, technology and travel.
  • Generative AI agents to create custom analyses of the ZEI.

“Consumers are key drivers of the US economy, and Zeta’s extensive proprietary consumer signals resulting from their engagements online and offline can provide a unique view into the health of the US economy,” said David A. Steinberg, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO of Zeta Global. “We’ve been using the power of our Data Cloud with great success and now we’re excited to bring to market a differentiated economic index that is based on actual consumer behavior, not just sentiment, and uses cutting-edge Generative AI to deliver a real-time pulse on the US consumer and economy.”

The ZEI is comprised of two core indices and supported by sub-sections, articulating key consumer trends that serve as inputs into calculating US economic health and stability:

1. Economic Index Score

Definition: A combined, weighted score of key parameters that reflect the current health of the US economy as measured by consumers’ online and offline activities, powered by Zeta’s AI technology.

Relevance: The score represents the overall health of the US economy. A higher score indicates a positive uptick in economic activity in the US and a positive outlook.

2. Economic Stability Index

Definition: Predicted, blended quarterly stability score for the US population that indicates its ability to withstand economic downturns.

Relevance: The score represents the ability of people in the US to withstand fluctuations in the economy. A high and increasing score indicates a large and growing segment of people are well positioned to withstand negative fluctuations in the US economy.
