Methodology


To help monitor recent developments in the UK economy and to track businesses’ expectations and the uncertainty surrounding them we have put together a survey – the Decision Maker Panel survey – comprising Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) from small, medium and large UK companies operating in a broad range of industries that is representative of the population of UK businesses.

We ask respondents to reply to an online survey asking questions about past and future expected growth in sales, investment, employment, costs and prices as well as special questions. In the tabs below you can read about the panel, the survey design and the recruitment process.
