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 chief executives or managing directors of sampled businesses for their opinions on the current situation of their business compared to three months previously, and also for their expectations for the next three months.
The latest report shows that the headline all-sector Business Activity Indicator was 4 percentage points (pp), implying that the proportion of businesses in Jersey reporting an increase in business activity compared with three months previously was 4 pp greater than the proportion reporting a decrease. Half of all businesses reported ‘no change’.
