The NAED PAR Survey provides the industry with critical financial benchmarks to evaluate your company’s performance in areas such as operations, sales, and expenses.

New this year is PAR+ Branch-Level Reporting. This exciting expansion of the original PAR survey is designed to benchmark operational and financial data at more granular geographic areas (where available). Participants in last year’s pilot program found the breakouts to be highly valuable as branch operations and expenses will be impacted by location, particularly over multiple states where costs and expenses can vary. While the current PAR report includes benchmarks for four U.S. regions, the PAR+ Branch-Level reporting can provide a deeper cut of operational data so your business can better evaluate performance by specific locations.

Distributors can start now! Complete the surveys at and see how your bottom line stacks up to other distributors.
