EU-Harmonized Business Tendency Surveys
NIER has carried out monthly surveys since 1996. The questions in the monthly business tendency survey are harmonised with EU guidelines and are implemented in collaboration with EU/DG2.
All EU member states carry out monthly business tendency surveys. The presentation and methods are the same in principle as those for the NIER's quarterly business tendency surveys. However, the number of questions, the number of industrial sectors, the number of firms selected are smaller in the monthly survey.
