ICYMI: Business Survey Results on the Future of Westchester Economy
The Westchester County Association business survey on the future of Westchester’s economy was conducted between late May and June 2020 at the direction of WCA’s Post Pandemic Working Group – a collaboration of business, nonprofit, and academic leaders formed to identify and address some of the most important regional economic challenges and opportunities both created and highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WCA business survey requested responses to a brief list of questions focused on identifying the most important industry sectors and most important issues for Westchester’s economic future. The survey further requested responses on the length of the pandemic’s economic impact and future business sentiment.
