2019 Annual Business Survey (ABS) – Characteristics of Business Owners

The Annual Business Survey uses the collection year in the survey name rather than a single reference year.  This is in an effort to better reflect the collection cycle of the survey.  The 2019 ABS covers reference year 2018.

Characteristics of Business Owners

Sector, Sex, Ethnicity, Race, and Veteran Status

Multiple owner characteristics are included in the table listed above.  To find a specific owner characteristic, use the filter feature in  Filter on the ‘Question Description Code’ column using the codes in the table below.  For more information on using the Census Bureau’s data platform, visit the resources page.
