What if you could provide your members with a glimpse into your industry’s future? As an association, you want to provide members with tools to help them survive and thrive, and to make a positive contribution to the health of your industry. Industry Barometer Reports LLC can make you the exclusive provider of priceless business insights on an ongoing basis.
Data is a necessary tool to help guide educated business decisions. Industry Barometer Reports LLC gathers, analyzes, and presents accurate industry data in the Industry Barometer Report—a means of capturing real-time data about an industry that is low in cost yet high in value.
Our customized, comprehensive surveys convert raw data into your own Industry Barometer Report, which provides expert analysis of current business conditions based on information supplied by your members. All data sources remain anonymous and confidential, enabling participants to compare their own businesses with the industry as a whole.
Reports include visual data representations, such as charts and graphs, cross-referenced by region, business segment, and end market, and are rounded out by indexes that help members evaluate specific aspects of their business activities. Nowhere else is this available. See Sample
Industry Barometer Reports LLC has been successfully conducting Industry Barometer Reports for trade associations for more than 35 years. Member response rates have consistently averaged more than 20 percent—significantly greater than statistically necessary for accuracy—and far greater than an industry insider could obtain. Members are reluctant to share sales, production, or financial data with anyone in the industry. In this aspect, we provide the bridge between you and your members, a bridge that leads to forecasts of business conditions two to three months in the future.

“Our custom Business Barometer has been an asset to the association members for decades. The projections have been remarkably accurate, and they even seem to mirror the performance of the national economy. The most valuable parts are the comments from members, which give insight into the mood of members in different regions we wouldn’t otherwise see.”
