First Business Economic Survey Instruments Posted

In September and October of 2010, Wisconsin business owners, CEOs, and CFOs participated in the annual First Business Economic Survey. The survey asked respondents to evaluate the current, and predict the future performance of their businesses on eight key economic indicators: sales revenue, operating costs, capital expenditures, profitability, staffing, wages, pricing, and operating capacity. See a copy of the 2010 surveys: Dane County, Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, and Northeast Wisconsin.
