“Small businesses and entrepreneurs need data to make informed decisions about opening or growing a business. The Census Bureau’s business statistics profile firms with and without paid employees by NAICS industry and for varying levels of geography.” 

“Businesses are dynamic and the Census Bureau produces extensive information quarterly and annually about how firms with employees change in terms of their location, structure, employment, and jobs. Information about business births, deaths, job flows, and worker characteristics highlight the ever-changing business environment.

Data tools makes it easy for existing and aspiring entrepreneurs to use Census Bureau demographic and economic statistics to grow their businesses and compare their operations with other businesses in their geographic area or industry.”
