With the inauguration of the quarterly Scottish Business Survey (SBS) in September 1984 there are not two regular up-to-date indicators of trends in the Scottish industrial sector. The combination of the new survey and the long-standing CBI Industrial Trends Survey provides a comprehensive assessment of trends in Scottish industry.
