Guide to the
1997 Economic Census
ZIP Code Statistics presents counts of establishments by size by detailed NAICS for five-digit ZIP Codes in 9 of the 18 sectors covered in the 1997 Economic Census:
ZIP Code data on CD-ROM: The statistics shown for all of these sectors, by detailed NAICS, include the count of establishments in several employment-size categories, typically establishments with fewer than 5 employees, 5 to 9, 10 to 19, 20 to 49, 50 to 99, and 100 employees or more. For eight of the sectors, excluding manufacturing, there are also counts of establishments by size of sales or receipts. The categories published on CD-ROM by ZIP Code are illustrated on the web for the U.S. only. These establishment counts by size class are not considered to be a disclosure of confidential information, so a data line is present for every kind of business with one or more establishments within a ZIP Code. CD-ROM ordering information is at http://www.census.gov/mp/www/rom/msrom7bc.html.
ZIP Code data on the Web: Statistics on sales or receipts, annual payroll, and number of employees by sector by ZIP Code are published at http://www.census.gov/epcd/ec97zip/us/US00000.HTM. The data are shown in hypertext tables and are also available in a nationwide downloadable file. These data do not include the detailed NAICS categories shown on CD-ROM. Because business activity in many ZIP codes is dominated by a very small number of establishments, these aggregates are shown only in ranges.
