Each quarter, we release the Live Oak BusinessPulse which is based on survey findings from more than 2,800 companies across the country. These results offer a detailed analysis on small business sentiment including economic position, economic confidence and credit outlook for small and middle market companies. Our goal is to uncover and identify trends, common challenges and shared opportunities for small businesses in our nation. The survey is powered by Barlow Research Associates, Inc., a leader in in-depth market research.
