Updated Statistics of U.S. Businesses

Jonathan Ortmans, President, Public Forum Institute

The Census Bureau has released 2005-2006 updates to the Statistics of U.S. Businesses. The SBA Office of Advocacy, which partially funded this project, announced that the newly added data include business openings/closings and job creation/destruction by industry and geographic location. A new component of this release is data on establishment births and closures by county.

Some these data series go back as far as 1989, which allows users to explore how small businesses are affected by the business cycle.
