The Jersey Business Tendency Survey provides qualitative information about the Island’s economy in a timely manner. The survey enables a set of indicators to be produced that can be used to monitor economic performance.
The headline all-sector Business Activity Indicator was -8 percentage points (pp), implying that the proportion of businesses in Jersey reporting a decline in business activity compared with three months previously was 8 pp greater than the proportion reporting an increase. Almost half of all businesses reported ‘no change’.
The all-sector Business Activity Indicator improved in the latest quarter, recording a slightly negative level which was last seen in September 2011.
The survey covers private sector businesses in Jersey. The survey asks the chief executive or managing director 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.
