CBS conducts Financial Indicators Expectations Surveys to get a better understanding of the views and expectations of the banking sector, households and firms within the Seychelles’ economy. The survey collects and collates forward-looking information related to prices, monetary variables and real sector indicators over a time horizon spanning 3 months up to 3 years.

Information obtained from the surveys will supplement price statistics and other economic indicators that the Bank currently analyses. Understanding forward-looking information of different variables can enhance policy decisions as well as provide a measure of the general sentiments of the various target groups within the economy.
