2019 Small Business Credit Survey

The 12 Reserve Banks of the Federal Reserve System conduct an annual survey of small businesses to better understand their financing needs and experiences. The survey is fielded every year in the fall, reaching thousands of small businesses across the US. The findings provide policy makers and service providers with important insights on small business conditions and the challenges faced by small firms of different sizes, across various industries, and in different parts of the country.

If you are a small business owner with fewer than 500 employees, we’d like your input! The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and includes questions about business performance, financing and credit, and firm demographics. Please click here to launch the survey. Results will be available in the second quarter of 2020.
