Business Survey

The City hired The Morris Leatherman Company (MLC) to conduct a randomized survey of Bloomington businesses with the goal of using feedback to address issues that are important to the local business community. The City worked with MLC to determine the areas of focus for questions and MLC wrote the questions and conducted phone calls to ask these questions. The survey took place in June and July.

MLC chose about 400 businesses using random sampling. Business owners and managers were asked the questionaire by MLC trained and supervised personnel and was conducted in English, Hmong, Somali and Spanish. To ensure the integrity of the sample, MLC places the most exacting sampling standards in the industry on their procedures. The City of Bloomington will be presented with the final report with results aggregated and anonymous.
