    Abstract

    Scottish Business Survey (SBS) in September 1984 there are now 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. The two data sources are essentially complementary, but there are important differences between them. While the CBI Survey provides information on trends by size of firm, the Scottish Business Survey provides a geographical breakdown of responses.
