County Business Patterns: Is this data only available by county?

County Business Patterns (CBP) and ZIP Code Business Patterns (ZBP) series provide data by County and ZIP Code.  However, data are also available for Metropolitan/Micropolitan Areas, States, and for the total United States. CBP is also published for the Island Areas including Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

CBP and ZBP data are not available at sub-place geography levels (such as blocks, block groups, and tracts) as recognized in the Decennial Census. Also excluded are many of the sub-county and sub-state geographies (including school, congressional, voting, and state legislative districts) the Decennial Census publishes. These geographies are excluded primarily to avoid disclosure of individual business data.
