From May 2022, the Institute of Economic Research and Political Consultations began to issue the Monthly Survey of Enterprises “Ukrainian Business During the War”. The goal of the project is to quickly obtain information about the current state of the economy at the enterprise level.
The survey is conducted using the approach of business trend research (or Business Tendency Survey), when the assessment of the situation is based on the generalizations of judgments and expectations of the main economic agents – entrepreneurs and enterprise managers regarding the situation at their enterprise.
The field stage of the fourth wave lasted from August 5 to August 17, 2022. The managers of the enterprises compared the results of work in July 2022 with June 2022, assessed the state of this or that indicator at the time of the survey (August 2022) and gave forecasts for the next 2 – 3 or 6 months, depending on the question. In certain issues (where it was indicated), the results of the work were compared with the pre-war period (the period until February 24, 2022). Respondents gave forecasts for the next 3 months of work.
