Quarterly Economic Surveys & MPs’ Newsletters

Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce’s Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is a regular independent business survey and forms part of the largest and most representative survey of its kind in the UK.

Widely recognised as a key economic indicator by government, the Bank of England, the Office of Budget Responsibility, the EU Commission and independent economists alike, the QES provides both central and local policymakers with an important source of feedback of the performance, concerns and views of businesses across Northamptonshire.

The data we gather is fed into the British Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Economic Survey- the largest and most representative independent business survey of its kind in the UK, which takes in the views of over 7,500 businesses and is the first economic indicator of the quarter. Published in advance of official figures and other private surveys, it consistently mirrors trends in official data.

It’s your time and contribution towards this survey every quarter that makes this the UK’s leading private sector indicator of the UK economy since 1989.
