In FY 2011, the Office of Advocacy’s Office of Economic Research (OER) continued to offer timely research on a variety of small business topics, with a particular focus on small business job creation and financing. In fiscal year 2011, the office published 25 separate contract and internal research reports about topics including small business innovation, demographics of ownership, and capital formation. The office produced several new well-received series, including a Quarterly Lending Bulletin and Frequently Asked Questions about Small Business Finance.  OER continued to provide easy-to-understand tables and reports downloadable from the website. Beyond research products, the office sponsored two research conferences in FY 2011, the first in October 2010, on innovation and financing in high-impact businesses, the second, in September 2011 on the small business debt and equity capital crunch.
