The resulting report is typically available within three business days of the participation deadline, and it is available to all ASA vendor members and only to those wholesaler-distributor members that contribute data for a given month. The report breaks down the data across different sales volumes, industry segments, regions and specific state/metropolitan market areas for which there is sufficient number of respondents. Therefore, the value of this report is directly related to the number of wholesaler firms that contribute data each month - the greater the number of respondents, the more comprehensive and useful is the report and accompanying analysis.
