Survey findings and summary
Thumbtack.com, in partnership with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, has released the new results from the second annual Thumbtack.com Small Business Survey. The 2013 study draws upon data from over 7,000 small business owners nationwide and shows that San Diego again received a failing grade from small business owners.
Some of the key findings for San Diego include:
- San Diego's highest grade was a 'C' for its training and networking programs, placing it above Los Angeles and Sacramento. The city earned a 'D' for the business friendliness of its licensing requirements and labor laws.
- California earned a 'D' grade, up from an 'F' in 2012. Although the state struggled overall, it ranked above average for its online resources for small businesses.
