Statistics of U.S. Businesses (SUSB) Main


  Latest SUSB Annual Data  


2011 annual or static data include number of firms, number of establishments, employment, and annual payroll for most U.S. business establishments. The data are tabulated by geographic area, industry, and enterprise employment size. Industry classification is based on 2007 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes. An establishment with 0 employment is an establishment with no paid employees in the mid-March pay period but with paid employees at some time during the year.

Receipts data are available only for Economic Census years (years ending in 2 and 7). View the latest receipts data in the 2007 historical annual tabulations.
