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).

As the most authorative national business survey, the results, alongside those from other Chambers, form part of the largest survey of its kind in the UK and is recognised as a key economic indicator by the Government, the Bank of England and independent economists. Its results allow the Chamber to accurately represent an up-to-date view of current operating conditions and business confidence across the three counties in our engagement work with local, regional and national decision makers.

How can I contribute?
The survey consists of tick-box questions that cover several aspects of your business, such as employment, sector, investment and external factors, and should take you approximately three minutes to complete. A link is provided to each Chamber member via an email - if you wish to provide a named contact for the QES, please email the Information & Representation Department: plc@m-n.ouoiyecdlc.k. Q4 2016, closed on 28 November 2016 and the results will be published during December 2016.

How are the survey results released?
East Midlands Chamber communicates the results of the survey to members through a variety of channels. For example, we publish the report and accompanying infographic on our website, provide detailed presentations of the suvey findings at various events - Strategy & Influence Group, Sector Forums, Presidents Dinners, etc. The Chamber also provides a press release for use by local and regional media.

In addition, we will be hosting Business Lunches throughout 2017, each quarter, where the results of the latest survey are launched, and this also features an economic commentary that highlights particular aspects of the survey, offering delegates the opportunity to question experts on what the results mean for the region.

The 2016 Q3 survey results are viewable here.

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