The Envision Iowa Statewide Leaders Economic Outlook Survey

The Envision Iowa Statewide Leaders Economic Outlook Survey is a research collaboration between Business Publications Corporation (BPC) and Bâton Global. The survey provides leaders and decision makers across Iowa with sentiment data on the aggregated outlook for the future of Iowa, with the objective of supporting them in making commercial, investment, and public policy decisions that positively impact Iowa’s long-term economic performance.  The survey focuses on the three critical themes that drive state-level economic performance: People & Culture, Business Opportunities, and Infrastructure. Within each of the three themes, the survey focuses on the four subthemes that capture the most pressing issues on Iowa’s economic performance agenda for 2023. Read the report here.
