At the end of every year, the German Economic Insitute conducts a survey of employers' associations (Verbandsumfrage) to assess the mood of German business.

Content Type

The panel comprises around 50 associations representing all important sectors of the German economy. In addition to the current business climate, the IW researchers monitor the outlook for the future by asking the associations’ representatives about their expectations for production, investment and employment in their industry in the coming year.
