Survey of Business Owners: I need detailed industry and geographic area data from the Economic Census where do I start?
The most recent industry and geographic area data come from annual, quarterly, and monthly surveys. However, these surveys are more limited than the economic census in industry scope, geographic detail (most are U.S. only), and/or data content. Some survey special topics are not covered by the economic census. The Business & Industry page includes links to these annual, quarterly, and monthly Census Bureau economic surveys.
The economic census and many surveys only cover establishments with paid employees. You'll need to reference the separate Nonemployer Statistics for total industry and sales data.
