The Business Tendency Survey is a quarterly survey which provides qualitative information about the Island’s economy in a timely manner.
It covers private sector businesses in Jersey, and asks the Chief Executive or managing director of sampled businesses for their opinions on the current situation of their business compared to 3 months previously and also for their expectations for the next 3 months.
The latest report shows that in March 2012 the headline all-sector Business Activity Indicator was -25 percentage points (pp), implying that the proportion of businesses in Jersey reporting a decline in business activity compared with 3 months previously was 25 pp greater than the proportion reporting an increase. Half of businesses reported ‘no change’.
