About the survey
The quarterly Jersey Business Tendency Survey (BTS) provides qualitative information about the island’s economy.
The survey asked the chief executive or managing director of private sector businesses for their opinions on the current situation of their business compared to three months earlier and their expectations for the next three months.
The survey provides a set of ten qualitative indicators to monitor Jersey's economic performance.
There are eight indicators which measure current performance:
- business activity
- new business
- capacity utilisation
- input costs
- product prices
- business optimism
There are two indicators measuring future performance:
- future business activity
- future employment
