Regional network: Phone survey October 2017, summary of findings
A phone survey of a limited sample of contacts in Norges Bank's regional network was conducted in the period 9-11 October 2017. All regions were represented in the survey and 76 private sector contacts were interviewed. The interviews focused on developments in output since August and whether expectations have changed regarding output growth ahead.
In August (survey 3/2017), regional network enterprises expected moderate output growth over the next six months. Information gathered in October indicates that developments in overall activity have been approximately in line with enterprises' expectations in August. Expectations regarding output growth ahead have changed little since August.
As from 2018, no phone surveys will be planned ahead of interim monetary policy meetings.
In autumn 2002, Norges Bank established a regional network of enterprises, organisations and local authorities throughout Norway. More about the Regional Network
