Dealers who want to give feedback on market conditions and sentiment are invited to participate in a five-question survey, with an opportunity to leave additional comments.

This month’s survey asks retailers to weigh in on wage pressure in a market that’s 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 such industry data points as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit.

The report also includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers. It provides a glimpse into dealers thoughts about current and future market conditions.

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