Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. As you may be aware, this survey is being commissioned by Vital Communities and is being conducted by Civic Economics. The survey results will be the basis for generating a report analyzing the differences between independent businesses and national chains in terms of keeping money within the local economy.

When filling out survey answers, the study area as defined for this survey is found by looking at this map. This will be referenced a few times as you move through the questions.

All results, beyond simple descriptive answers that show that you have participated, will remain confidential and will only be seen by the two partners in Civic Economics. For more information please contact Matthew Cunningham with Civic Economics at mattc@civiceconomics.com.
