Quarterly Economic Survey

QESThe Chamber's Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the region’s up-to-date barometer of business confidence.

With fieldwork taking place in February, June, September and November each year, aspects reflecting business and investment confidence are analysed across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Leicestershire by county, by region, and then nationally by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).

As the most authoritative national business survey, the results - alongside those of 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 enable the Chamber to accurately represent an up-to-date snapshot 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 various aspects of your business - such as performance, recruitment, and investment intentions - and only takes a few minutes to complete.
A link is provided to each Chamber-member via an email - if you wish to nominate a 'designated contact' for completing the survey, please email the Chamber at plc@m-n.ouoiyecdlc.k

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 full report and summary on our website, provide detailed presentations of the survey findings at various events - Strategy & Influence Group, Sector Forums, President's Dinners, etc. The Chamber also provides a press release for use by local and regional media.

Latest Economic Intelligence

Following completion of the Q1 fieldwork, the feedback has been analysed, and a full report and a summary of the key findings and implications are now viewable - many thanks to all those that participated.

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