    In 1961 the European Commission, in association with government departments or research institutes in Member States, instituted a harmonised monthly survey of the business attitudes held by managements affirms in the manufacturing sector. With Ireland's accession to the EEC the survey would have been extended here. However, there was already a quarterly survey on businessmen's intentions in operation. Beginning with the fourth quarter of 1961, the Confederation oflrish Industry ( CII) and The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) had been conducting a quarterly survey of businessmen's attitudes in the Republic of Ireland and publishing (from 1968) an account of the results of the latter's Quarterry Economic Commentary. On Ireland's accession, the CII-ESRI survey was revised so as to ensure comparability with other member countries, and the first monthly survey was carried out in March, 1974. Results are now reported in the Commission's Business Survey publication and in Ireland in a CII monthly report.
