The attached file below is an Office of Advocacy Working Paper by Ying Lowery. Preliminary Survey of Business Owner tracking data on the dynamics of employer establishments—rates of establishment death, expansion, and contraction and net job change—are available now for 2002-2003. The data are displayed by size of business and by the gender, Hispanic or Latino origin, and race of the owner, as well as by industry and state. Subsequent editions will include data for the 2002-2004, 2002-2005, and 2002-2006 periods.
