The 2016 New Jersey Small Business Owner Financial Security Survey was conducted as a telephone survey among business owners or decision makers with 1-100 additional employees. Sample, including owner names and companies, was randomly drawn from a Dunn & Bradstreet database of businesses with 1-100 employees within the state of New Jersey.  A total of 450 interviews were conducted by the American Institute of Consumer Students from October 30-December 1, 2015.  The data was not weighted.
