Survey: Local leaders report better results over winter Read the current edition of the Quarterly Business Report on St. Cloud Live

St. Cloud area business leaders reported better results in the November 2023 to January 2024 period, with 36% reporting higher business activity and only 16% reporting lower business activity. This result reversed what was observed last fall, when more business reported lower than higher activity.


Since 1999...

For nearly 25 years, the Quarterly Business Report (QBR) has given local business leaders information on what their fellow leaders think and feel about the local economy. Its long publication record lets readers know how businesses reacted in previous recessions and how they might in the next one with special questions delving deeper into topics of interest to businesses, households and governments.

Drs. King Banaian and Mana Komai-Molle co-author the QBR.
