New Hampshire Economic Globalization Report: Contributions and Opportunities for the Local Economy
YOU ARE ASKED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS SURVEY IN RECOGNITION OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS THAT YOUR COMPANY MAKES TO OUR STATE.
By providing responses, you are contributing data to an innovative new research project that will map foreign direct investment (FDI) and international trade flows in New Hampshire. The research aims to uncover distributions and concentrations within the state, by county, as well as across and within industries. In addition, the study will measure the contribution of globalization to our state’s economies at the county level, in terms of employment, investment promotion, exports facilitation, labor conditions, technology/know-how spillovers and social welfare. Participants will receive a synthesis of the aggregate results.
The survey takes approximately 15 minutes (additional time may be needed to collect information). All data is about the firm not the respondent, hence demographic information about the respondents is not relevant to this study and will not be collected. There are no risks or discomforts associated with the survey. You may skip any question, provide partial information or exit the survey at any time. If at any point in the survey you need to exit to find data, you can return by clicking on the same URL link within seven days to complete the survey.
YOUR IDENTITY AND COMPANY INFORMATION IS SECURE AND CONFIDENTIAL AT ALL TIMES DURING AND AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THIS STUDY.
Your identity and company association will never be disclosed. All information collected will be kept confidential. Results will be reported at the aggregate level only. Whilst the study aims to generate a complete “picture” of foreign business presence and international trade flows within the state, by county, the level of data aggregation will be determined by the overarching principle of protecting every company’s data and identity. Aggregation will ensure that no company’s information is traceable and no conclusions can be drawn about any one company, beyond what is in the public domain already.
