Creative Industries Survey

The creative industries play an important role in a community’s cultural life. Creative Industries are defined as the commercial for-profit sector that work to create content, provide creative retail and support services, and often to act as distribution points for other cultural content. We want to learn more about Burlington’s Creative Industries sector.

Take the Survey

The City of Burlington Cultural Action Plan has created unique surveys for each segment of the creative community.  The survey is only 15 questions and should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

Welcome to the Creative Industries survey.  We've created customized surveys for each segment of the creative community in order to ask questions that are relevant to you and your industry.  This survey contains 17 questions and will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

The City of Burlington and CoBALT Connects takes your privacy seriously.  All information is collected via a secure webpage and the data is kept in a secure database.  This information will not be shared, sold or given to anyone without your express consent.

Key points to the privacy and care of your data:

  1. The raw data will never be viewed by the City of Burlington.  Only the consulting team members of CoBALT Connects will view the data
  2. The data will only be presented in aggregate form.  For example, we’ll never say “John’s company made $50,000.”  We’re more likely to say “graphic design firms in Burlington grossed 2M.”
  3. Long-term care of the data.  CoBALT Connects will hold the raw dataset for a 3-year period should the City ever wish to do a follow-up study with comparable data.  Again, should this occur, the City of Burlington and any other researcher will not see or be given the raw data collected through this process.

Thank you for participating in the Creative Industries survey.  CoBALT Connects will provide each respondent with a full copy of the report generated from this survey and a customized summary report on your business in relation to the broader community.
