Survey of Business Owners: Are my survey responses kept confidential? (External)

Yes.  By law (Title 13, United States Code, Sections 9 and 214) your responses are completely confidential and may be seen only by persons sworn to uphold the confidentiality of Census Bureau information.  The data are used only for statistical purposes and the responses are summarized so that the confidentiality of individual respondents and their business activities is fully protected.  The law also provides that copies retained in your files are immune from legal process.
