Annual Business Survey

The Annual Business Survey (ABS) is conducted in two parts: employment and financial information. The financial inquiry covers about two thirds of the UK economy, that is production; construction; motor trades; wholesale; retail; catering and allied trades; property; service trades; agriculture (part), hunting, forestry and fishing. Employment inquiry coverage is wider. These web pages are mainly devoted to the financial information but include some employment data.
