Posted on Thursday, April 30th, 2020

The information in the pdf below is from an online survey conducted on behalf of the Iowa Economic Development Authority, from March 17 through March 23 of all Iowa businesses. Overall, 13,905 businesses and organizations responded to the survey—7,602 were from rural counties & 6,631 were from non-rural counties in Iowa.   UNI Business & Community Services is providing this summary of rural respondents to assist policymakers in understanding the initial impact of the ever-evolving social and economic COVID-19 crisis on rural Iowa.

Additional IEDA surveys and analysis are likely.
