Leicester and Leicestershire Business Survey 2009/2010

About This Report:

The Leicester and Leicestershire Business Survey has been carried out by a partnership involving Leicestershire County Council, Leicester City Council and other key local agencies over the last 10 years. The survey provides a comprehensive picture of local business optimism and performance. Interviews were conducted in November and December 2009 to provide an update on views of local business in the current economic climate, while continuing to monitor issues such as skills shortages and training. Questions on apprenticeships, graduates, parking and alcohol misuse were added to reflect current interests in these areas.

The survey was conducted by telephone with a robust sample size of 1,009 businesses across Leicester City and Leicestershire County, with at least 80 interviews in each Local Authority District. It offers comparability over the last 10 years, providing a robust source of evidence which can be used to influence policy, planning and help to attract funding to the area.
