The survey involves approximately 270 respondents from five regions, viz., Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, Surabaya and Medan. The correlation between the survey and GDP from private consumption is 0.71 (based on correlation tests in 2001-2008).

Respondents are paneled and classified into nine industry sectors based on the Indonesian Classification by Sectors (KLUI) 1997. The survey encompasses three types of price expectations including the general price, loan interest rates and sales expectations. The price and loan interest rates expectations are calculated by the balance score method (net balance + 100) where an index of more than 100 represents optimism. All results are presented in real index terms.
