Welcome to the Quarterly Economic Survey

This quarter's survey comes as Covid restrictions are being increasingly eased and follows the release of the Government's levelling-up intentions. However, recruitment and rising costs have been major issues in recent surveys.

In this time of change it is essential we get feedback from our local businesses about their experience and expectations to help inform policy decisions.

We urge you to spare a few minutes to complete the Q1 survey and help us to understand how Lancashire businesses are performing. 

The survey is open to businesses of all sizes and measures trends on sales, exports, workforce levels, investment and business confidence.  The information you provide is completely confidential.

At a national level, the survey results are scrutinised by the Government, the Bank of England and the media and the survey is recognised as a leading indicator of the UK's economic performance.

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is very important.
