Enterprise Statistics Program Methodology

The Census Bureau will resume publication of Enterprise Statistics reports with the 2012 Economic Census.

Methodology for the Enterprise Statistics program is currently being developed. We do not cover inactive enterprises and births. Data from the Business Register, administrative records, and survey records will be combined to produce the 2012 reports and will reflect about 97 percent of enterprises. Enterprise Statistics reports will be published in February 2016 following publication of the economic census industry reports.
