Nearly half of respondents -- 49% (800) -- believe there's a very slight chance that they will be laid off or fired within in the next two years, while an additional 10% (170) think there's no chance at all. About 31% (509) expect there's a moderate chance of being fired or laid off within that period of time. These results mark a 2% improvement from last year. Only 6% (99) think layoffs or firings are likely and 4% (63) believe they're very likely (Figure 1).

How the Data Were Gathered
A total of 1,827 respondents participated in this year's survey. That's second only to 2007 when 1,830 people answered our questions.

Since mid-January, respondents accessed the survey questionnaire via a link listed in the print edition of Chemical Processing, on the www.ChemicalProcessing.com Web site, and in e-newsletters and e-mail blasts sent to readers. Additionally, those who follow Chemical Processing on Twitter at Chem_Processing and Facebook at Chemical Processing Magazine were also encouraged to participate.
