Description of the time series (in German)

KOF Business Tendency Surveys

KOF economic surveys are periodically conducted with about 6000 companies from the industrial, construction and various service sector branches. These surveys are evaluated according to certain characteristics (e.g., sector, company size, exporting shares, regions). The database modules for the KOF economic surveys contain select time series of these evaluations. The data offer immense potential for assessing the current economic situation as well as the short-term outlook. It is also well suited for benchmarking a company’s performance against the industry’s development.

The following economic survey data modules are available at the current time:
