The Quarterly Economic Survey, published by the Chamber, uses a range of data on business related issues including investment and pay.

Take the survey now.

Businesses are also asked if they are experiencing pressures such as raw material prices and other financial constraints. As well as this the survey collects data on turnover and profitability changes.

In order to help understand current challenges the survey questions include what factors are supporting business success and equally what barriers exist such as capacity problems.

Jonathan Walker, head of policy, North East England Chamber of Commerce said: “This survey is an important barometer of how our region’s businesses are finding the economic climate at present. We use this information to help shape our campaigns to ensure the North East gets the best possible deal from Government and our businesses are assisted in areas important to them.”

The survey is open to all Chamber members which includes the leading companies in the North East, medium sized and SME businesses.

It closes on Monday 11 September, and the results are announced on 12 October.
