Abstract

Between them the Scottish Chambers' Business Survey (SCBS) and the CBI's Industrial Trends Survey provide a reasonable guide to current and recent trends in the Scottish economy. Both surveys are carried out on a quarterly basis with results being derived from the responses of Chambers of Commerce and CBI members, respectively. While the two sources are complementary in nature there do exist important differences between them.
