County Business Patterns

County Business Patterns provides annual statistics for businesses with paid employees within the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Statistics are available on businesses at the National, State, and County levels. Data are presented for number of businesses, employment, and annual payroll. Data do not include statistics on self-employed businesses, employees of private households, or most government activities.

County Business Patterns data are processed through various automated and analytical edits to remove anomalies, validate geographic coding, addresses, and industry classification. The Noise Infusion Method is applied to protect individual business establishments from disclosure.
