The Quarter 4 2021 survey is now closed.

The South Yorkshire Quarterly Economic Survey captures a regular snapshot of business sentiment on the local economy and business matters.

It is the largest and most representative independent business survey of its kind in the UK. It is the first economic indicator of the quarter, published in advance of official figures and other private surveys, and it consistently mirrors trends in official data. For this reason, the survey is closely watched by policymakers such as the Treasury, the Bank of England, the Office of Budget Responsibility, the EU Commission and the IMF.

Results from the South Yorkshire Quarterly Economic 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.

It is vital that South Yorkshire businesses take part in the survey to help inform and influence decisions that affect the local economy.

We'll share the Quarter 4 results on this page when they are available.
