Based on the views and experiences of visitors to during April 2010, it seems that nearly 80% of respondents HAVE indeed seen some signs of economic recovery. Although Definitely seeing signs of economic recovery was a selection option, it really only speaks to the strength of the economic recovery witnessed by the respondent. It is encouraging that 3 x more respondents have witnessed some sign of economic recovery than have not yet seen some sign of recovery.

This contrasts favorably with our December 2009 ad hoc poll on the recovery where only 37% saw some signs of recovery, but 37% definitely saw the recovery. A slow recovery can easily convert the definitelys into ‘some signs.’ Consider also our April 2009 ad hoc poll on when visitors expected the economy to recover to note that only 65% expected the recovery to have begun by April 2010. Yikes!
