The 2016 Business Confidence Survey Results
Business Confidence Survey Background
Established in late 2008 – in partnership with major business, industry and government groups – the Sunshine Coast Business Confidence survey provides accurate and important information about trading conditions on the Coast.
Regularly receiving up to 500 business participants from across the entire Sunshine Coast region, the survey reports are professionally collated and include expert economic analysis.
In 2014 we introduced our Boardroom Business Confidence Index using all the data collected since 2009. For an explanation of how the index is calculated, please see the methodology used by our economists EMDA>> Boardroom Business Confidence Index Methodology
