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 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 835 responses to the survey fielded from April 3, 2014 to June 20, 2014. 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.
