The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is investigating how users would like the Business Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Survey (BICS) to evolve to meet future needs.

BICS is a fortnightly survey, rapidly set up at the beginning of the UK lockdown (providing data from 23 March 2020), in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The survey has developed over time and aims to provide fast indicators of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on businesses, more timely compared with other ONS business surveys.

BICS has now been running for 10 waves.

As a user of the BICS data, we would greatly appreciate it if you could answer the following questions about your use of, and future requirements from, BICS. This survey will be open until the 21st August 2020.
