Description
  • Series Information

    The EBDC Business Expectations Panel, BEP, consists of the main variables of the ifo Business Survey and the corresponding balance sheet data from firm databases Amadeus (Bureau vanDijk) and Hoppenstedt(Hoppenstedt Information GmbH).The ifo Business Survey has been conducted by the ifo Institute on a monthly basis. The core of the questionnaire consists of qualitative assessments on the current economic parameters of companies such as, for example, the general situation, turnover, demand, credit constraints  and staff numbers, as well as questions on trends in the forthcoming months in areas like business, employment and price expectations. The financial variables were merged by using the matching software MTB (Merge Toolbox) developed at the Center for Quantitative Methods and Survey Research of the University of Konstanz.
