Businesses invited to participate in confidence survey

RICHMOND -— The IU East Business and Economic Research Center is conducting the 2019 business survey for east central Indiana. It is open until Sept. 20 to businesses in Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Randolph, Rush, Union and Wayne counties. 

The survey will help the BERC maintain the IU East Regional Business Confidence Index to monitor the business sentiment and economic trend in our region. It assists local and regional economic studies conducted by the BERC. Survey results aid economic development groups and chambers of commerce in strategic planning and efforts to facilitate a healthy business climate.

Responses to the 10-minute survey will be confidential. Business owners/managers will be asked to provide general demographic information, their opinion of business performance and their business and economic expectations for next year. Results of the research survey will be made public by year end.

The 2018 IU East Regional Business Confidence Index report is available at iue.edu/business/berc.

For information, contact Oi Lin “Irene” Cheung director of the Business and Economic Research Center and associate professor of finance, at 765-973-8497 or ocheung@iue.edu.
