Help us dive deeper into the main drivers of our economy

Posted by Maggie Kost on Feb 06, 2015

We need your help to take a deeper dive into the main drivers of the Springfield regional economy.

The Chamber is partnering with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis to conduct a short 10 question survey which will evaluate regional economic conditions.

Take the Survey!

Participation in the survey is voluntary, and will be open to all businesses from February 4 through February 13 in an online format. The results of the survey will be released later this spring.

Researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis have selected Springfield, Missouri as the current focus of their ongoing series of metropolitan areas profiles within the Eighth Federal Reserve District, a seven-state region of which Springfield, Mo. is part.

Collecting anecdotal information from regional businesses is an integral part of the study as it helps to ensure that the voice of Main Street is reflected in the Fed’s regional economic analysis. Insightful survey responses will be selected to appear in the region’s report and will be used to inform the Fed’s Beige Book, the Federal Reserve’s summary report on the feedback it receives about economic conditions across the country.  A complete summary of the Springfield study’s results will be shared with the Chamber.

We hope you will consider taking part in this important initiative.
