For the recent quarters for which the administrative data on new employer businesses are not yet available, Projected Business Formations within Four Quarters (PBF4Q) provide the number of employer businesses that are expected to form within four quarters from business applications made in any given quarter. The projections are model-based estimates of employer business formation activity. Both the actual and projected series are provided with and without seasonal adjustment.
