New Survey of Business Owners Public Use Microdata Sample: 2007

The first-ever Survey of Business Owners (SBO) Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) is now available. The SBO PUMS was created using responses from the 2007 SBO and provides access to survey data at a level of detail below that of the currently published SBO results. The SBO PUMS will allow researchers to create customized tables and models and to study entrepreneurial activity and the relationships between business characteristics such as access to capital, firm size, employer-paid benefits, minority- and women-ownership, and firm age. The SBO PUMS file includes national- and state-level data and detailed characteristics of businesses and their owners while protecting the confidentiality of survey respondents. The SBO is part of the economic census conducted every five years in years ending in “2” and “7.” Internet address: <www.census.gov/econ/sbo>.
