The Nonemployer Statistics by Demographics (NES-D) provides information on selected economic and demographic characteristics for nonemployer businesses and business owners by sex, ethnicity, race, and veteran status for the nation, states, and metro areas. The NES-D is not a survey; rather, it leverages existing individual-level administrative records to assign demographic characteristics to the universe of nonemployer businesses. Demographic characteristics including sex, ethnicity, race, veteran status, owner age, place of birth, and U.S. citizenship are assigned to nonemployer business owners.
For a complete description of the NES-D methodology, please visit www.census.gov/programs-surveys/abs/technical-documentation/NESDmethodology.html.
The Nonemployer Statistics by Demographics series (NES-D) provides information on the demographic characteristics of nonemployer businesses. The employer data in the Statistics for Employer and Nonemployer Firms dataset comes from the 2019 Annual Business Survey (ABS), reference year 2018.
