Dealers asked about wage pressure in September survey

Dealers who want to give feedback on current market conditions and sentiment are invited to participate in a brief, five-question survey with room for comments.

This month’s survey gives retailers the opportunity to weigh in on wage pressure in a market that is considered to have full employment.

The Pulse Report — administered in conjunction with Baird Research, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, and Trade Only Today — analyzes industry data points such as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit.

The reports also include the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers. It provides a glimpse into how dealers feel about current and future market conditions.

The MRAA and Baird Research launched the Pulse Report in 2013. Trade Only Today now partners with Baird to participate in distributing the survey and reporting its results.
