Introducing EZ Stats

EZ Stats is a quick, easy, and free monthly survey that provides regular insight on the entire control system industry. The survey provides the CSIA community (you) with a monthly gauge of trailing performance, current capacity and sentiment about the direction of the industry. In addition, the survey asks a couple of ad-hoc questions each month to provide insights on the community’s thinking about current topics.

It takes about two minutes to answer 3 to 5 questions every month. Three of the questions are always the same: What was your revenue, do you have capacity to take on more work, and are you optimistic about the future? That’s it. One number and two yes-or-no questions.

Your information is anonymous! A third party company called iLumen hosts this survey and provides the results for CSIA.

To participate, click the “Request a link to EZ Stats and start entering your data” button below to create a user account. Once you’re registered, you will get an e-mail each month with a link to enter your data and see the results from the previous month. You can see historical results any time by clicking on the “See monthly ES Stats results” button below.
