The Quarterly Economic Survey is the largest and most representative independent business survey of its kind in the North East


The Q4 survey is now closed, Q1 2020 will open on the 17th February.

As an organisation that campaigns to make the North East the best possible environment for business, understanding our members’ experiences of the regional economy is vital.

The results are an invaluable measure of different aspects of business such as the level of new orders from both the UK and overseas.

It is used by decision-makers in the region and also national organisations including HM Treasury and Bank of England, to help shape policies which affect companies.
