The U.S. Business Response Survey is a new survey designed specifically to capture how U.S. businesses have responded to the coronavirus pandemic by identifying changes to business operations, employment, and workforce flexibilities and benefits that occurred since January 1, 2020 specifically due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics, its employees, agents, and partner statistical agencies, will use the information you provide for statistical purposes only and will hold the information in confidence to the full extent permitted by law. In accordance with the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (Title 5 of Public Law 107-347) and other applicable Federal laws, your responses will not be disclosed in identifiable form without your informed consent. Per the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, Federal information systems are protected from malicious activities through cybersecurity screening of transmitted data.
