What is the Service Annual Survey?
The Service Annual Survey (SAS) provides data that help to measure America's current economic performance. Using a sample of about 70,000 service firms, the SAS collects revenue; expenses; e-commerce sales; and, for some industries, exports, inventories, class of customer, and detail product lines based on the North American Product Classification System (NAPCS).
The government uses the data to determine economic policy; private industry relies on these data for planning and research.
