What if I don't have the information?

If your 2007 SBO form requests information that is not in your available business records, you may use estimates. The Census Bureau has found that estimates from business officials are more accurate than industry averages or other estimates and increase the reliability of statistics when combined with information from other similar businesses.  If you want to clarify the survey request, discuss use of your available business records, or obtain help in preparing an estimate, please submit an email to or call 1-888-824-9954 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Eastern time.
