March 2012 Business Tendency Survey

11 April 2012

The Business Tendency Survey (BTS) for March 2012 has been published by the States of Jersey Statistics Unit.

The latest report shows that:

  • 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 more than the proportion reporting an increase. Half of all businesses reported no change
  • the all-sector Business Activity Indicator was at its most negative level since this survey was introduced in September 2009
  • over all sectors of the economy, all indicators were negative, although 8 of the 10 were at essentially the same level as in the previous quarter; Profitability, Input Costs and Business Optimism remained the most strongly negative
