Monitoring Our Economy

The Business Monitor is a series of surveys for the Mansfield Shire business sector.  There is a quarterly survey for the accommodation sector, a six monthly survey for the tourism sector and an annual survey for all businesses.  The database is taken from Council’s Online Business Directory which is created by businesses opting to be on the database.

The results:

(a) inform individual businesses with their own data against other like businesses

(b) inform Council with primary business data – both qualitative and quantitative, to assist with:

  • strategic planning
  • identification of business gaps or opportunities
  • funding applications
  • advocacy

The results also provide confidential data specific to the individual participating business and enables them to see their results and answers in comparison to their sector.
