FEATURE QUESTIONS

This questionnaire seeks your views on the general economic conditions facing your business in the present quarter and your
expectations for the next quarter. 

This is an OPINION ONLY survey. It is not necessary for the respondent to check records. Your responses to the survey are coded only by number and therefore are completely confidential. 

Results are released only in the form of totals and averages for all respondents together. All questionnaires will be destroyed when the data is collated. 

Your participation in this survey is valued. It forms part of one of the few surveys of business opinion in WA. To ensure continuity of results, it would be preferable if the same person could complete the questionnaire each quarter.
