GEOGRAPHIC CLASSIFICATION

Current program detail Concept definitions Maps

The most detailed data are provided for the U.S. as a whole. Key statistics, albeit progressively fewer, are available for states, metropolitan and micropolitan areas (MA's), counties, and places with 2,500 or more inhabitants. Only limited data are provided for ZIP Codes. Statistics for smaller areas are more frequently withheld to avoid disclosing information about individual firms.

The level of geographic detail varies by sector, as shown in Table 4.
