Review current results from the Business Pulse Survey here.


We invite business leaders in North Carolina to participate in an important, ongoing survey of business conditions in the state.

The new 'Business Pulse Survey,' the first of its kind ever undertaken by the Department of Commerce, provides timely insights as the state navigates changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

If you are in a position of leadership in your organization - for example, you're a business owner, CEO, manager, or human resources director - we invite you to participate now.

Take the Survey Now

The Pulse survey generally will take only five minutes to complete each month, with the first and last surveys being somewhat longer to allow our researchers to gain a more complete understanding of each participating company and its current condition.

The Business Pulse survey is a product of the North Carolina Department of Commerce in partnership with the NCWorks Commission and myFutureNC. Funding support was also provided by the Duke Energy Foundation.

The survey measures changes in business conditions, attitudes, and behaviors over time - particularly with regards to staffing.

Commerce's Labor and Economic Analysis Division (LEAD) implemented and manages the Pulse survey, and will analyze the data to identify how conditions, needs and expectations are changing.  Commerce publishes aggregated results data online, but business-specific information collected in the survey remains completely confidential. In addition to informing state policymakers, survey results can also benefit your business by providing a useful comparison to other businesses and industries throughout the state.
