En este trabajo se cuantifica el contenido informativo de los Índices de Confianza utilizados por el Banco de la República en la elaboración de su Informe sobre Inflación. Se estudian las frecuencias a las que ocurren sus variaciones y se comparan con las frecuencias de medidas similares de los Estados Unidos y de algunos países de Latinoamérica. Se estudia la relación entre los índices de confianza y un conjunto substancialmente grande de variables indicadoras de la actividad económica tanto locales como externas, particularmente con el PIB y sus desagregaciones. Se determina si los índices de confianza o sus preguntas individuales aportan información adicional a la que se tiene en ejercicios en tiempo real sobre la determinación del estado de la economía. Finalmente, se estudia la relación entre los índices de confianza con los de otros países durante la reciente crisis financiera internacional.
