SUSB 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 employment size of the enterprise. The industry classification is based on 2017 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.

Beginning with reference year 2017, a row of tabular data is only published if it consists of three or more firms. Otherwise, the row of data is dropped from publication and excluded from release. In years prior to 2017, payroll values were suppressed and employment values replaced with an employment range flag (EMPLFL_R) for all rows of tabular data with fewer than three firms and where necessary to protect data confidentiality or to meet publication standards; however, the number of firms and establishments was published.

Receipts data are available only for Economic Census years (years ending in 2 and 7).
