The index has risen since bottoming out at -25 points in April 2020 and has now practically recovered to its pre-coronavirus level of +33 points in January 2020.
The index was highest at +35 points among manufacturing companies, it was at +34 points among retail firms and was at +33 points among construction companies. It was lowest at +27 points among companies providing other business services.
The quarterly uncertainty index was unchanged from April to July and was at +38 points.
