Small Business Majority Research

Small Business Majority uses extensive scientific opinion and economic research to provide small business owners, advocates, policymakers and others with the information and tools they need to navigate through complex small business issues. We commission opinion research on the national and state levels to determine small business owners’ views on a range of topics including taxes, budget and the economy; healthcare; immigration; energy; entrepreneurship; workforce issues; and government accountability. Our research also examines the effect these policies have on small businesses and the economy as a whole.

We use our research findings to communicate the need for strong small business-friendly measures to policymakers, and we educate small business owners and entrepreneurs on how these polices shape their bottom line. We also take our data and build support among those in the small business community for laws that will help small firms grow their business and make them more financially viable in this economy.
