Small Business Credit Survey

Owners and managers of small businesses (defined as businesses with 500 or fewer employees) are invited to participate in the Fed's Small Business Credit Survey (SBCS). This annual, online survey is a collaborative project of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks to gather information and insights on the business climate, financial needs, and credit experiences of small enterprises in the U.S. SBCS results can help policymakers, researchers, and service providers better understand the sector's needs.

The 2017 SBCS questionnaire is open through December 31, 2017. The survey is mobile-friendly and takes about ten minutes to complete. Results are confidential. To participate, please click the box below.
