Quarterly Economic Survey

Quarterly Economic SurveyThe Chamber's Quarterly Economic Survey is the region’s barometer of business confidence.

Sent out in February, June, September and November each year, the information on trading conditions, UK and export sales, employment and capacity levels is analysed across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Leicestershire by county, by region, and then nationally by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).

This is one of the UK’s most respected business surveys and allows the Chamber to accurately comment on the current state of business confidence, and helps influence independent economists, the Government, and informs the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee. Locally, responses help shape Chamber campaigns, and provide the principle source of information to develop business messages about the East Midlands economy’s successes and needs.

The Quarterly Economic Survey for the third quarter of 2015 is now LIVE.

Following a strong start to 2015, the second Quarter saw a slight slowdown in growth rates for business activity in the UK, although overseas markets bucked this trend. As the Bank of England seemingly edges nearer to a rate rise, results for Quarter 3 will demonstrate whether there’s been further stabilisation in growth, or if business sentiment has responded positively to the certainty that a majority Government brings.

The Q2 Full Report is now available, with a summarised version viewable here.

For benchmarking purposes, the QES Archive contains previous survey summaries.
