The Economic Census is the official five-year measure of American business and the economy. Data provided by businesses fuels the most comprehensive economic statistics available, representing all U.S. industries and geographies.
Invitations to complete the Economic Census were mailed to selected businesses starting on January 31, 2023. If you received an invitation, responses were due by March 15th. Businesses that require additional time to respond should log in to portal.census.gov to access their account and request a time extension. Response is required by law.
Note: If you have not received an authentication code for the Economic Census, you do not need to respond.
Director Robert L. Santos shares information on the upcoming 2022 Economic Census and asks businesses who receive the 2022 Economic Census to respond.
