Business tendency surveys provide information which is valuable to the respondents themselves as well as to economic policy makers and analysts. This is an area of special interest for economists working in governments, national banks, statistical offices and for scientists. CIRET international conferences are the meeting place for top scientists of these areas from worldwide, and they successfully integrate the academic and business communities involved in business surveys and business cycles.

The book contains a selection of topics that have been discussed at 35th CIRET Conference titled Economic Tendency Surveys And Economic Policy: Measuring Output Gaps and Growth Potentials, which took place from 15 to 17 September 2021 in Poznań, Poland. See more on the global and local CIRET Conference websites.

The selection is driven around two goals. In the first part, the articles are related to the research methods, as well as the use regarding a broad range of methods applied in assessing the market economic situation. The second part of the book is focused on the use of methods and situation assessment.

In the presented papers, the variety within the scientific area of business tendency is shown. The work allows to prove the strong position of Polish science in this area as well.
