quarterly trends data

Each quarter, the UK Business Barometer asks five core questions on the following themes:

  • Skill Shortages
  • Lack of Finance
  • Low Market Demand
  • Recent and Expected Growth

The resultant charts show how the survey results have changed for these questions over time.

Charts can be accessed via the links listed below and allow results to be viewed incorporating all respondents (summary), or broken down by company type (sector) or company size (measured by turnover)
