Where can I find business failure rates for small and large businesses?

The Census Bureau does not have statistics on business failure rates. Our Statistics of U.S. Businesses (SUSB) program provides annual data for all U.S. paid employer firms, including establishment (single physical location) births and deaths.

In the past, Dun & Bradstreet produced Business Start and Failure reports. These were discontinued in early 2000's.
