Businesses Asked to Complete the COVID-19 Economic Impact Survey

In working with WEDC, UW Oshkosh Center for Customized Research & Services, the New North, and our local partners, we ask businesses to take this survey which will be used to measure the economic loss and to assist in future recovery efforts, as this COVID-19 pandemic plays out across Wisconsin. We thank UW-Oshkosh Center for Customized Research & Services for their survey technology and staff support. The results will be available at the county, region, and state levels. You will note this survey tool is dated and stamped with Observation Period #1. After your survey completion you will get a second survey stamped Observation Period #2 the week of May 3rd directly from UW-Oshkosh Center for Customized Research & Services, in which the questions may be altered slightly. This will assist in monitoring the rolling effects of COVID-19 on our business community. Thank you!
