Quarterly Business Sentiments Survey

The D.C. Policy Center’s Alice Rivlin Initiative on Economic Policy & Competitiveness is launching its Quarterly Business Sentiments Survey. This survey will supply systematic, comprehensive information on the business community’s experiences to elected officials, the media, and the public. Questions will center on overall business climates, barriers to growth, and business-related interactions with government.

Using the survey’s results, the Rivlin Initiative will offer actionable insights to steer policies in productive directions. The D.C. Policy Center will only publish trends and aggregate-level results; we will never share individual responses or publish results that can be linked to a particular business.
