Why does it take so long to get economic census data?

Forms are mailed at the end of the reference year (i.e., 2007), and data collection continues throughout most of the following year.  The data must then go through extensive review and analysis by industry and geographic area.

As analysis and data disclosure prevention are completed, data are released over many months in successively more detailed data sets.
