*This survey was conducted between October 2019 and January 2020. As such, this data does not reflect any changes the COVID-19 pandemic may have caused within the industry. However, this allows VMAC to compare this pre-COVID-19 data against the data that will be collected when the survey is conducted again in 2021.
