The New York Fed’s Small Business Credit Survey collects information from small businesses in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania—about their performance, financing decisions and credit experiences.
In October 2012, Superstorm Sandy struck the region impacting local small businesses.
As part of the Fall 2013 Small Business Credit Survey, we asked businesses about the
storm’s impact and progress with their recovery efforts. In total, we heard from
950 firms located in FEMA-declared disaster areas.
The Small Business Credit Survey (SBCS) is a semi-annual establishment survey conducted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, reporting information about business performance, financing needs and choices, and borrowing experiences. The fall 2013 survey also asked small businesses about the immediate and longer-term impact of Superstorm Sandy. The SBCS captures the perspectives of businesses with fewer than 500 employees in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. The SBCS is distributed through civic and non-profit partners, primarily Chambers of Commerce, industry associations, and development corporations/authorities.
In total, there were 1548 responses to the survey fielded from October 10, 2013 to December 31, 2013. The number of responses to each individual question varied based on relevance. Results are weighted to reflect the full population of small businesses in the four states of coverage, along the dimensions of industry, age, employee size, and geography.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York's Office of Regional and Community Outreach asks small businesses about their business performance, financing choices, and borrowing experiences. The survey was conducted online and distributed through a network of local government and nonprofit partners.
