Cummings Associates and Civic Economics have been retained by the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association and the Ohio Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association to measure the impact of horse racing to the Ohio 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 Ohio in 2018.

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 2018. You may use the calendar year or, if you prefer, your fiscal year 2018.

IF YOU HAVE YOUR 2018 (CALENDAR OR FISCAL) FINANCIAL RECORDS AT HAND, THIS SURVEY SHOULD TAKE ROUGHLY 15-30 MINUTES TO COMPLETE.  QUESTIONS WITH AN ASTERISK (*) ARE REQUIRED.
