Publications

The SNB’s delegates for regional economic relations are constantly in touch with a large number of enterprises from different industries. Their reports, which summarise the evaluations made by these companies, are a valuable source of information for the SNB in assessing the economic situation. The results of these talks and of any special surveys are published regularly in the SNB’s Quarterly Bulletin.

On a quarterly basis, the delegates hold interviews with around 240 company representatives on the current and future economic situation. The results of these talks are published in the SNB’s Quarterly Bulletin in the section titled ‘Business cycle trends’ (until end-2010: ‘The economic situation from the vantage point of the delegates for regional economic relations’).

Special surveys

The SNB also conducts surveys on current issues whenever necessary. For example, from the second half of 2010, it supplemented its economic survey with a survey on the effects of the Swiss franc appreciation. This special survey was conducted until the end of 2011. In 2015, the Swiss National Bank revisited this topic in a similar special survey.
