Research Methodology: The SCORE Foundation engaged Pricewaterhouse Coopers to conduct research into the economic impact that SCORE’s 10,000+ volunteers had on the US Economy in 2018. Pricewaterhouse Coopers conducted a census survey of all SCORE mentoring clients and 20,500 responded via telephone and web. Total client revenue, business creation, and job creation numbers were calculated via straight line extrapolation from the survey respondents to the total number of 2018 SCORE clients.
