Think your business doesn’t need to answer the Five-Year Economic Census? Think again.
Imagine trying to secure a bank loan, develop a strategic business plan or land a good company for your small town with no data to back up your proposal.
What many businesses and organizations don’t know is much of the information they used to land lucrative contracts or lure good, high-paying jobs to their areas comes from the Economic Census – a key source of statistics and information about business and industry.
Issued once every five years (for years ending in 2 and 7), the economic census is currently underway for 2017 and is the first time the entire survey will be conducted almost entirely online via a secure portal.
