Business Concern Survey Results

Despite a lower response rate than anticipated, a non-random sample of just over 8,000 Chamber members, yielded 79 responses for a recent poll asking “What are your top three business concerns for the next 12 months?” Read complete Survey Results.

The top concern selected from a list of topics was “Increasing government involvement and control,” [n=32]. The second most selected topic was “Increasing competition and impact on profit margin,” [n=11]. And the third most selected topic was “Inability to acquire financing,” [n=10].

Respondents also chose from a list of business sectors most closely matching their primary business. The top three sectors selected by  respondents were “Professional and Business Services,” [n=16]; “Education and Health Services,” [n=13] or “Financial Activities,” [n=13].

The survey was distributed to recipients of the Fargo Moorhead Chamber of Commerce e-mail newsletter distribution list the week of September 21, 2009. While the responses collected are not enough to project to any sizable audience, they are an indication of a general focus of concern.

Please watch future issues of The eBridge for additional questions aimed at exploring our members' economic outlook as the Chamber constructs the January 14 Regional Economic Outlook Forum.
