Compare to our Spring reports statistics - in April, when coronavirus impact was at its worst and May when integrators started to rise.

Inside this report, we share these statistics and a hundred integrator comments to show what is going on right now in the industry.

I'd be interested to see a state by state or regional response to the survey, especially with different parts of the US experiencing the impact at different times across the year.

There's not enough responses to do state by state and even regional would be difficult to ensure accuracy. We do have enough and segment between the US and outside the US, things are noticeably worse outside the US, from the responses we received. Of course, we don't have a country by country breakdown (Spain vs Canada vs New Zealand, etc.).

The headline graphics for this ongoing Coronavirus impact series has been absolutely great. I'm not certain who at IPVM does those but I do want to give them their accolades.
