Abstract

Together, the Scottish Chambers' Business Survey (SCBS) and the CBI Industrial Trends Survey provide a reasonable guide to current and recent trends in the Scottish Economy. Both Surveys are conducted quarterly with results being derived
from the members of the CBI and Scottish Chambers' of Commerce. While the two surveys are complementary in nature, there do exist important differences between them. Whilst the SCBS provides a geographical breakdown of responses,
the CBI Survey provides information on trends by size of firms. The number of respondents to the SCBS is many times that of the CBI Survey and it covers not only manufacturing but also construction, wholesale distribution, retail distribution, financial institutions and tourism and leisure firms. Both Surveys were conducted
during December 1990 and January 1991.
