Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) Helping You Influence

How to take part in the Quarterly Economic Survey (QES)

The Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is the biggest business survey of its kind in the East Midlands. The results provided by Chamber members are analysed by the Chamber in order to help shape crucial policy discussions locally, regionally and nationally.

The results from the survey feed in to the British Chambers of Commerce QES, the largest and most representative independent business survey of its kind in the UK.

The Chamber also presents the results to Members of Parliament, as well as senior councillors and officials in various tiers of Government. The survey is also closely watched by policymakers such as the Treasury, the Bank of England and the International Monetary Fund. The information you provide is collated with other responses from the British Chamber Network to form one of the most influential business surveys in the UK – providing consistent data since 1989.

Chamber members are actively encouraged to feed into the QES to help shape the Chamber’s policy discussions – which are based on first-hand feedback from businesses in the region.

Your views are important. The answers from this survey will help to shape the way in which we represent you.

The survey is run over set periods four times a year. When live, it can be completed below.
