Background

The English business survey (EBS) provides ministers and government officials with information about the current economic and business conditions across England. By providing timely and robust information on a regular and geographically detailed basis, the survey enhances officials’ understanding of how businesses are being affected throughout England and improve policy making by making it more responsive to changes in economic circumstances.

The EBS interviews 3,000 workplaces each month and provides timely intelligence on business conditions. The survey provides an assessment of past, current and future conditions.
