Annual Gross Domestic Product

About the Economic Activity Survey 

The objective of the Annual Economic Activity Survey (EAS) is to develop a range of statistics, suitable for comparing the relative economic performance of all industrial divisions of the Bermuda economy. The EAS is the instrument used by the Department of Statistics to collect key economic information from a broad range of businesses and organizations in both the private and public sectors of the economy. These institutions include incorporated businesses, schools, restaurants, sports clubs, hotels, religious entities, public bodies, small unincorporated enterprises, and international companies. A greater level of macroeconomic data about the changing economy is needed by business entities that aim for continuous growth. Reliable and relevant economic data enhance the quality of decision making in the public and private sectors.
