Profile America — Friday, October 3rd. U.S. based manufacturers receive new orders every month worth close to a half-trillion dollars. To underscore the health and prospects of this economic sector, today is the third annual Manufacturing Day, with activities staged across the country by American companies. The focus is a series of open houses to show the breadth and vitality of American manufacturing innovation and quality, and illustrate the need for skilled employees. Currently, over 11 and quarter million Americans work in this sector. The 2012 Economic Census found nearly 296,000 manufacturing establishments in the U.S., doing nearly $5.6 trillion dollars of annual business. The economic census, the most comprehensive survey of our economy is taken at five-year intervals, and dates back in several forms to the year 1810. You can find current data on the country's economy by downloading the 'America's Economy' mobile application at www.census.gov/mobile
