Taken every five years, the Economic Census serves as the foundation for the measurement of U.S. businesses and their economic impact. This survey is sometimes referred to as the “business census". It serves as the most extensive collection of data related to business activity. Nearly 4 million different U.S. businesses receive surveys tailored to their primary business.
