Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) today announced the launch of a new online survey, the results of which will shed light on the outdoor industry’s current economic situation.

OIA, in partnership with Piper Jaffray & Co, fielded the Piper Jaffray Economic Confidence Survey to provide real time data about how industry leaders view the macro economic environment and the overall health of the outdoor industry. The survey builds on the initial results collected in its late 2008 survey, entitled Piper Jaffray Survey of Consumer Industry Executives.

"Many of our members have told us that they are concerned about employment trends, inventory levels, effects of the credit market and sustainability and environmental trends in our industry,” commented Frank Hugelmeyer, president of OIA. "Outdoor Industry Association is committed to helping our members by providing the critical business information contained in this survey."

The brief survey will allow OIA to gather and aggregate the economic data to share with its members. The survey is currently open through Friday, May 15, 2009. A report highlighting key takeaways will be posted on the OIA website and available to OIA members in late May.

Those interested in taking the survey can visit outdoorindustry.org/research. The Piper Jaffray Economic Confidence Survey can be found by clicking the “Market Research” tab. For more information please contact OIA at 303.444.3353.
