Real Time Indicators

Bi-weekly articles highlighting what the latest real-time indicators are telling us about business, households, and the economy.


Every 2 weeks we look at what the real-time indicators suggest for the Scottish economy. This includes a discussion on what the data shows for businesses, households and the economy as a whole.

The main data sources do not tend to show what impact the Covid-19 pandemic is having on current levels of business trading or the impact on households finances, and so we use the most recent data to provide a snapshot of the economy in real-time.
