Central banks rely on an array of data to inform monetary policymaking. In addition to closely followed statistics such as the unemployment rate and gross domestic product (GDP), a growing number of central banks conduct surveys and interviews with businesses to gather economic intelligence. The Central Bank Business Survey and Liaison Program Group (CBBS) was formed in 2010 to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, and business liaisons to share their expertise in business survey administration and methodology and to discuss survey results and analysis.
