The special topic in this EBCI takes a look at new questions on economic uncertainty that have been introduced in the Joint Harmonised EU Programme of Business and Consumer Surveys. In light of the COVID-19 shock, the new measures of perceived uncertainty are shown to provide reliable information at an early stage. The Commission will include the new uncertainty indicators in its regular releases of survey results as from October 2021.
