Marquette & ISM - Milwaukee Manufacturing Survey

Each month, Marquette Business faculty and graduate students survey area businesses about manufacturing activity in southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Survey questions are designed to take the “pulse” of the business community and analyze its trends. After analyzing the survey data, the Marquette team tabulates the results and creates a monthly “Report on Business,” providing valuable commentary on and essentially “handicapping” the current state of the local economy.
