Thank you for participating in this important study of the economic impact of horse racing in the State of Florida.
Cummings Associates and Civic Economics have been retained by the Florida Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association, the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association, and the Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association to measure the impact of horse racing to the Florida Economy.
This survey is an essential component of that study. The survey is aimed at owners, breeders, and trainers of Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, and Standardbred race horses active in the state of Florida in 2012.
This survey asks for financial information of a sensitive nature, so we want to assure you that your confidentiality will be protected assiduously. Only personnel associated with Cummings and Civic Economics will have access to your responses, which will be maintained in a secure environment. Results will be presented in the aggregate, averaging responses in two ways: sets of questions will be totaled, then those totals will be averaged. The reporting of the study will provide no opportunity for anyone to identify your business information.
All questions refer to 2012. You may use the calendar year or, if you prefer, your fiscal year 2012.
IF YOU HAVE YOUR 2012 (CALENDAR OR FISCAL) FINANCIAL RECORDS AT HAND, THIS SURVEY SHOULD TAKE ROUGHLY 30 MINUTES TO COMPLETE.
