To gain a better understanding of small business conditions and access to credit, researchers at the Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, and Atlanta Feds are conducting an online survey of small business owners during September and October 2014. Survey questions cover several areas, including firm performance and challenges, financing and credit, employment skills needs, and demographic information. Owners of businesses with fewer than 500 employees are encouraged to participate in the survey. All responses are confidential, and aggregate results will be published later this year.
