Deadline Extended! COVID-19 Wisconsin Business Survey

On behalf of WEDC, DWD, UW Oshkosh Center for Customized Research & Services, and our local partners, we ask you to take this survey by April 10 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. We realize with an overlap of membership, you may get the survey from more than one organization. You only need to complete this survey once per observation period. Duplicates will be screened as part of the intake process. While there are a lot of unknowns during this time it is the intention that there will be a couple more observation period surveys through the tail end of the pandemic. Please don’t hesitate to contact Barb LaMue, should you have any questions.
