YouGov’s Economic Tracking Data

For its Household Economic Activity Tracker (HEAT) data, YouGov’s asks consumers about their economic outlook on a daily basis, conducting more than 77,000 interviews a year. The data is a powerful tool for any organisation looking to understand how consumers interact with the economy.

YouGov's HEAT data covers all aspects of consumer economic behaviour, including:

  • Household financial situation: current position and expected future changes; debt levels
  • Workplace: job security, business activity, projected job growth
  • Housing: prices and expected change
  • Credit: needs, cost and availability
  • Spending: current and expected future spend in categories such as groceries, vacations, mobile phones, newspapers, clothing, going out
  • Macroeconomics: expected inflation rate, confidence in government management, overall conditions for making major purchases
