The State of Manufacturing is the most comprehensive survey of Minnesota’s manufacturers that reveals their perceptions and opinions on the economy and other issues impacting business.

Our national pollster interviews over 500 manufacturing executives representing a proportional mix of geographic locations, size and type of manufacturer. To provide further depth and context, we conduct focus groups with manufacturing executives on the topics of the day.

Enterprise Minnesota analyses the data by each of the six Initiative Foundation regions to provide greater local insights.
