TUCSON, Ariz., October 1, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Heritage Business International, L3C (HBI) released the results of its U.S. Cultural Resource Management Office Manager’s Sentiment Survey for the third quarter of 2018 today. HBI's survey is the only forward-looking market survey for the heritage compliance sector. Each quarter, the survey asks office managers of companies providing heritage compliance services if their invoices will be less, the same, or more in the next quarter, in six months, and in a year. An index of 50 is the same, greater than 50 is growth, and less than 50 is contraction.
At the U.S. national level, the next-quarter index is 61.8.
Office managers at heritage compliance, or cultural resource management, firms believe that growth will continue over the next year. However, managers report that the rate of growth will decrease over that seen in recent quarters.
