Self-Employment Survey Accepted through Dec. 6
NOV. 6, 2004--Small businesses that were selected to be part of a study
of self-employment by University of Wisconsin-River Falls economics Professor
John Walker still have a chance to win tickets to the Minnesota Vikings-Green
Bay Packer football game in Minneapolis on Christmas Eve.
Surveys sent to selected businesses can be returned to Walker up until
Dec. 6. Surveys received on the 6th are still eligible for the random
drawing that will take place on that day.
Participants in the study will be entered to win two tickets to the game
on Dec. 24. Each of the three pairs of tickets to be awarded include a
pre-game buffet and two lower level seats.
Walker is conducting research on self-employed business proprietors in
St. Croix County. A random sample of 900 of the 2,100 self-employed small
businesses in the county have been selected for the study. This includes
sole proprietors, incorporated businesses, partnerships, and independent
Questionnaires will take about 15 minutes to complete. All information
submitted to the study is completely confidential. A self-addressed, stamped
envelope will be provided.
Following completion of the study, results will be available to the public
in an effort to inform decision-makers seeking to improve economic opportunities
in west-central Wisconsin. The results will also contribute to Synergy
2005, an annual conference which brings together businesses, local governments,
and universities in western Wisconsin to promote economic growth. Walker's
study is also inspired in part by the "Wisconsin Idea" in which
Wisconsin universities share their resources to promote community development.
