    Abstract

    Since October 1984 there have been two regular surveys of Scottish businesses, one carried out by the Chambers of Commerce and the other by the CBI. These have the great advantage that they provide indications of the trends in a number of economic variables several months in advance of the publication of the official statistics . Moreover, they provide a basis for making assessments about the short-term prospects for the economy.
