Every spring and autumn, the IW contacts some 2,600 companies in the west and 700 firms in the east of Germany to ask about the state of their business and their expectations regarding production, exports, investments, employment, prices and revenues.

The survey includes producers of raw materials, investment and consumer goods, construction and the services sector but excludes the wholesale and retail trades, the banking and insurance industries and the public sector.
