Privacy Policy


Consensus Economics is devoted to meeting clients’ expectations on the quality and timeliness of its surveys and keeping the costs of our publications and data services affordable. Since our first survey in 1989, we have never missed a survey date.

To control costs, we work with simplified client agreements, and we avoid the burden of bureaucratic form filling. We also work to reduce the risks associated with cyber attacks and their potential to compromise the personal details of our clients and their staffs.

To achieve transparency, we describe our business and illustrate our survey methodology on our website, and we provide PDF files showing selected survey results. These are free for clients to download and print.


We accept payments in UK pounds, US dollars, euros, and Australian dollars, by bank transfer and by check. Checks should be made payable to “Consensus Economics Inc.” For bank transfers, please e-mail us at for our full bank account details. If the payment is for a renewal, please provide your account or invoice number. We can invoice you. If you have any questions about our current pricing, please email us at or telephone us here in London at +44-20-7491-3211.
