Business Base Survey

Our Economic Development & Strategic Investment team carried out a business base survey. This survey took the form of a quantitative postal questionnaire with a reminder postcard to improve response levels. A response rate of 15.4% (205) on the business database of 1,330 companies in East Lothian was achieved which is similar to previous years, however is an acceptable return for a postal survey.

Below is a summary of the key findings from the survey.
