South Yorkshire Quarterly Economic Survey

Results from the South Yorkshire Quarterly Economic Survey (formerly the Doncaster Business Insight Survey) are used to influence local, regional and national governments and decision makers to help shape the support structures available to the local business community.

Your business needs, straight to 10 Downing Street

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

Your feedback is an invaluable measure of different aspects of business. The results are used to influence local, regional and national governments and decision makers to help shape the support structures available to the local business community. At the national level, it’s a leading indicator – often picking up big changes in the economy long before other surveys or official statistics:

  • The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee uses the QES as one of its key benchmarks when setting interest rates.
  • HM Treasury and the independent Office for Budget Responsibility use the QES to put together their forecasts for the UK’s economic performance.
  • The European Commission uses the QES to assess the health of the UK economy when it makes policy recommendations for both Westminster and Brussels.

The South Yorkshire Quarterly Economic Survey opens for a few weeks every three months. Each quarter, in addition to the standard questions that remain unchanged, the survey features a small number of 'snapshot' questions on an issue that is particularly pertinent at that time. Previous topics have included skills supply, innovation, and the priorities for South Yorkshire's newly elected Metro Mayor.

You do not need to be a current Doncaster Chamber member to respond to the survey, and all responses are reported anonymously. 

The survey is currently closed, please check back soon for the next survey. All previous results can be found on this page.
