To support our communities as well as the state of Wisconsin during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Customized Research and Services, area chambers of commerce and economic development organizations are coming together with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to collect data and build solutions. CCEDC asks you to take this survey by April 6 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 goal of the project is to create and distribute a data collection tool to businesses in the region who are experiencing economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey will be available to businesses in all 72 counties and disseminated by Wisconsin’s nine regional EDOs and their local chamber and community partners. The survey will be repeated over several observation periods to better determine the economic impact to businesses over defined periods of time.
The survey results will inform the state and federal support efforts, and the tool will create a better understanding of the issues and problems faced by Wisconsin businesses. The ultimate goal is to measure and assess recovery ability and state and federal aid efforts.
