|Core Business Statistics provides data for all sectors,
Economy-Wide Key Statistics File consolidates the basic four statistics
--number of establishments, employees, payroll, and sales--
for all industries and all covered areas as they are published in separate
Geographic Area Series
and Industry Series reports.
- The Advance report gives the first data, albeit preliminary, for broad NAICS and SIC categories.
- Bridge Between NAICS and SIC shows the relationships between NAICS and SIC categories in detail.
- Comparative Statistics shows U.S. and state totals classified by SIC for both 1992
and 1997--comparisons not possible with other, NAICS-based reports.
- Nonemployer Statistics is the only source for information about
nonemployers--16 million small businesses not included in other census reports.
Company Statistics, including
Minority- and Women-Owned Businesses
summarize data in terms of companies or firms rather than establishments.

kinds of business at the national level.
