SUSB annual or static data include number of firms, number of establishments, employment, annual payroll, and receipts for most U.S. business establishments. The data are tabulated by geographic area, industry, and enterprise employment or receipts size. The industry classification is based on 2012 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.
Receipts data are available only for Economic Census years (years ending in 2 & 7).
