What happened to the Business Decision database?
Thank you for asking! Our subscription to Business Decision was discontinued in August of 2015. The high cost and cost-per-search of the database made it a vulnerable asset in a time of tight budgets.
Conveniently enough, in the same week that I was notified of the end of our Business Decision subscription I was introduced to a new demographic and consumer spending tool offered free by the Census Bureau, Census Business Builder. While it's not an exact replacement for Business Decision I would encourage you to test it out and see if it meets your research needs.
Please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com; I serve as a business specialist for OPL and would be glad to see if we can help meet your information need using Census Business Builder, ReferenceUSA, or other public data sources.
Thanks again for using AskOPL!
