US Census Bureau Statistics of US Businesses Data
The data was used as the basis for this post exploring the evolution of small business employment in the US.
I collected separate files from the Census Bureau's website.
The included files are:
- us_naics_large_emplsize_98_06.csv - Data from 1998 to 2006 at the national level, by NAICS sector, with firm sizes up to 10,000+.
- us_naics_large_emplsize_07_15.csv - Data from 2007 to 2015 at the national level, by NAICS sector, with firm sizes up to 10,000+.
- state_total_by_size.csv - Data from 2010 to 2015 at the state level, by NAICS sector, with varying firm sizes.
There are two files for national data as the formatting from the Census Bureau changed.
I did not include revenue data, which is collected in the years ending xxx2 and xxx7.
The glossary can be used to decode some of the flags.
The files for each individual year are collected in their respective folders.
