Geographic Area Series

This series provides detailed industry statistics by geographic area for establishments of firms with paid employees.

Subject Series

This series includes summary data by industry and other special topics. These data summarize and supersede the Manufacturing Trade released in the Industry and/or Geographic Area Series. Content for these series are grouped together by topical reports, which include:

  • Product lines, Product Summary, and Industry-Product Analysis Summary (What products an industry makes or sells?)
  • Concentration ratios (How much do the largest firms contribute to the data?)
  • Establishment size (How large are the establishments within an industry?)
  • Other miscellaneous topics (e.g. capital expenditures, rental payments, end-of-year inventory, industrial robotic equipment, etc.)
  • General Summary (Detailed manufacturing data for the US)
  • Materials Summary (What materials are used by manufacturing industries)
  • Location of Plants Summary (Where are manufacturing plants located)

Data for these topics are primarily available at the U.S. level, but for selected topics, at the state level. Topics covered by each sector will vary.
