Where can I find data on a certain topic?

If you know that the census has the information you want but you can't find the right table, you can use the Search function on the American FactFinder main page tool bar. If you don't know what data the economic census has, or how it is organized, you can go to the Finding Data section on the 2007 Economic Census Web site for tips and tools.

It helps to know that the tables are organized by industry and geographic area. Generally the geographic area tables have basic data items like number of establishments, sales, payroll and number of employees by industry. Other data items, like detailed products and services, and industry-specific inquiries, and data sorts other than industry and geography (like size, and legal form of organization) are in industry or subject reports.
