Center for Economic Development
The Business Research Bureau of the JSU Center for Economic Development (CED) provides an array of services to meet the needs of businesses, individuals, and governments. The CED is dedicated to providing results to requests in a timely and efficient manner. The CED's services include:
- Consumer Opinion Surveys: The CED will design survey instruments customized to meet your specific need. Using random sampling procedures, consumers are interviewed, the data is evaluated by a statistician, and an analysis is prepared which summarizes the findings and makes recommendations.
- Community Marketing Plans: Competition among communities is keen for attracting businesses and fostering growth that will provide jobs for residents. To enhance opportunities for growth, community leaders frequently engage in formally marketing the community regionally and nationally. The CED can assist by developing a marketing plan custom-made to reflect the strengths and attractive features of the community.
