Global business pulse
The Global business pulse is the first index to track the health of mid-sized companies at a global, regional, country and sector level.
The Global business pulse provides a complete view of mid-market health and future prospects at a global, regional, sector and country level, while sub-indices provide a view of a number of dimensions that contribute towards this health.
The index draws on indicators from a long-running survey of almost 10,000 mid-market business leaders across 29 economies. This sentiment-based survey asks business leaders a series of questions about their expectations over the next 12 months, and provides data going back ten years.
The index is constructed from two equally weighted sub-indices:
Outlook: This sub-index shows the outlook for mid-market businesses, and consists of 10 indicators covering future business conditions (including growth), economic optimism, and future investment intentions.
Restrictions: This sub-index shows the extent of restrictions to mid-market growth and consists of 10 indicators covering demand and supply constraints and economic uncertainty.
