    The Ifo Business Survey for Trade has been conducted on a monthly basis by the Ifo Institute since 1950. The core of the questionnaire consists of qualitative assessments on the current economic parameters of companies such as, for example, the general situation, turnover, inventories or ordering, as well as questions on trends in the forthcoming months in areas like employment and price expectations.
