ROCHESTER, Minn. -
In a webinar, the Census and other organizations presented different data models on how businesses and households have been impacted by COVID-19. One of the models is the Small Business Pulse Survey - which gives insight on how existing small businesses are reacting and responding to COVID-19 related challenges.
72 percent of the food service industry got impacted by the pandemic - according to their data - while only 22 percent of utilities saw any effects.
"The utility sector is the one with the least impact. It's hard to imagine how a utility business might be impacted but I'm sure there were some that were," Andrew Hait, an economist, said.
