New to the survey this year is a Business Trends section. We asked employers their outlook for the economy and sales revenue growth. For the economy, respondents reported whether they felt the 2017 economy would be better, the same, or worse than the 2016 economy. For sales revenue growth, respondents selected whether they felt 2017 versus 2016 would be a significant increase, slight increase, flat (no increase), slight decrease, or significant decrease. Variance was minimal between the four states. chart-2
