A survey sample of 78 business firms in Coffeyville was completed to find determinants of business retention and expansion of existing industries in the community.
These firms, drawn from sectors constituting the economic base (retail firms and service firms that were entirely local were not included), were surveyed to identify factors that influence the retention and expansion of existing industries in Coffeyville, to identify the potential of Coffeyville firms to expand within their community, to assist the establishment of local retention and expansion efforts, and to distinguish local issues that influence retention and expansion.
