Agents' Summary of Business Conditions

We regularly publish a summary of reports compiled by our twelve regional Agents following discussions with around 700 businesses across the UK. The report provides information on business conditions from firms across all sectors of the economy.

The reports do not represent the Bank's views, or those of any particular firm or region.

Agents' scores 

As well as their reports, our Agents also produce quantitative assessments of economic conditions as seen from their region. These scores provide numerical measures of the intelligence that they gather from month to month, and cover some areas of the economy for which there are no official statistics.

How we use the Agents' intelligence

Our Monetary Policy Committee uses the intelligence provided by the Agents, alongside information from other sources, to help it understand and assess current economic conditions.
