Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis Requests Your Input on Construction Survey

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Due to the deep stress related to COVID-19, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis is tracking the effects on the construction sector across the Ninth District, a region that includes Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana, northwestern Wisconsin, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We are partnering with construction associations in your state to collect insights on the pandemic’s effect on the sector.

Please take this 5-minute survey to help the Minneapolis Fed and President Neel Kashkari better understand effects on the construction sector. This feedback, in turn, will help the Federal Reserve System shape monetary policy to help businesses weather this economic shock. If you get this survey from multiple sources, please respond to the survey only once.

All survey responses are anonymous. After the survey closes, we will share findings with partnering organizations (that sent you this survey) and publish a summary article on the Bank website (see article on May survey here). To maintain anonymity, please do not include any self-identifying information in any comments.

The Minneapolis Fed greatly appreciates your time and valuable insights, and we wish you and your business good health and resilience going forward.
