Start of fieldwork on the Business Climate Survey. Q1/2023

The fieldwork for the Business Climate Survey for the first quarter of 2023 is underway. The fieldwork will be carried out from the 15th of March and will end on the 11th of April.

The Business Climate Survey is a quarterly official statistical operation that is part of the 2023 Annual Statistical Action Programme action 02 03 06 , as regulated by the Law on the Statistical Plan for Catalonia 2017–2020. These statistics are governed by a collaboration agreement between Idescat and the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce.

The main objective of the Business Climate Survey is to quickly find out about the situation and evolution of establishments with activity in Catalonia and, on the basis of that information, to foresee possible trend changes in the economic cycle. The operation collects data from five different sectors of activity: industry, construction, trade, accommodation and food service activities and other services.

In addition to basic questions to know the situation and evolution of the business in a given period, every quarter the questionnaire collects information on areas of interest in the business environment through the Business News Module.
