The Small Business Economy

For the past 30 years, the Office of Advocacy has produced a series of annual reports on American small businesses titled, from 1982 to 2000, The State of Small Business and from 2001 to the present, The Small Business Economy. This is a rich collection of information about small business contributions to the economy and trends over time. This year, for the first time, the Office of Advocacy offers the key data on small businesses in tabular form online in place of the paperback report. This new format will increase the accessibility of the data.
