Employer and Nonemployer Firms

Employer and Nonemployer Firms

Notes: Data shown includes only firms classifiable by race and ethnicity and excludes the equally minority/non-minority category. Minority-owned firms are defined as any race and ethnicity combination other than non-Hispanic and White. The NES-D is an annual statistical series that uses existing administrative records (AR) and census data to link demographic characteristics to the universe of nonemployer businesses. The Census Bureau provides annual business owner demographics for all businesses through a blended-data approach that combines AR-derived estimates for nonemployer businesses from NES-D and survey-derived estimates for employer businesses from the Annual Business Survey (ABS). The ABS is sponsored by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics within the National Science Foundation.
