The only economic and performance outlook indicator of the middle market health.
Released quarterly by the National Center for the Middle Market, the Middle Market Indicator is the only resource of its type, providing performance data and forward-thinking insight on the middle market. Because the current health and forecast for the middle market serves as a solid indicator for the greater U.S. economy and America’s future competitiveness, this report is an invaluable resource for the business community, policymakers and students alike.
The Middle Market Indicator is a quarterly business performance update and economic outlook survey conducted among 1,000 C-suite executives of middle market companies with annual revenues between $10MM and $1B. The survey tracks and reports key information about middle market companies, including:
- Gross revenues performance
- Overall company performance
- Employment performance
- Expected 12-month gross revenue growth and employment growth
- Confidence in the global economy, U.S. economy, and local economy
- Key business challenges
- Top areas for investment dollars
- Perceptions on topical issues and challenges relevant to the U.S. middle market
This imperative research can be leveraged by executives, researchers, and students to further the awareness, success and prosperity of the middle market.
