What small town people see as their biggest challenges
And what topics they most want help with
When you ask small town people what challenges they want help with, the responses provide an interesting insight into rural areas today.
SmallBizSurvival.com and SaveYour.Town are conducting a survey in 2019, focusing on what rural people think their challenges are and what actions they are taking to address them.
Questions the survey will address include:
- Are rural people focused on well-publicized crises like opioid addiction or poverty?
- Is the lack of small business lending a big challenge in small towns? If not, what are the real small business challenges?
- What actions are rural people taking to address the challenges they see? Which are working?

About the survey methodology
Voluntary responses will be collected online, from subscribers and visitors to SaveYour.Town and SmallBizSurvival.com and from cooperating groups that choose to publicize the survey. The survey will be open for approximately 6 weeks in June and July 2019.
