New Survey of Firms' Expectations

The survey of firms’ inflation expectations is a large quarterly representative panel that was created to measure inflation expectations of chief executive officers (CEOs) in the United States. It gathers information about the 12-months-ahead inflation expectations, long-term inflation expectations, perceptions of recent inflation rates, inflation uncertainty, and belief about the Federal Reserve’s inflation target. The survey covers firms in manufacturing and services.

This research was funded in part by National Science Foundation grant 1530467.Ongoing survey funding is provided by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
