Between them, the Scottish Business Survey (SBS) and the CBI's Industrial Trends Survey provide a reasonably reliable guide to recent and current trends in the Scottish economy. Both Surveys are carried out on a quarterly basis with the results being derived from the responses of Chambers of Commerce and CBI members respectively. In addition to eliciting information from different sources the Surveys also differ to a degree in the questions which each asks and the analysis of the replies.
