2020 Annual Business Survey (ABS) – Characteristics of Businesses

The Annual Business Survey uses the collection year in the survey name rather than a single reference year.  Therefore, the 2020 ABS covers reference year 2019.

Multiple business characteristic topics are included in the Characteristics of Businesses tables. Below are links to the data tables by the business characteristic topic. Question Description codes for the topics are in parenthesis. For more information on using the Census Bureau’s data platform, visit the data.census.gov resources page.
