Annual Economic Surveys

In addition to conducting the Economic Censuses every five years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts more than 100 economic surveys covering annual, quarterly, and monthly time periods for various sectors of the economy. These surveys measure a wide variety of economic activities, from capital expenditures for food manufacturing companies to annual auto dealership sales.

Annual Economic Surveys available in American FactFinder:

Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM):

This survey provides sample estimates of statistics for commercial manufacturing establishments with paid employees.

County Business Patterns (CBP) and ZIP Code Business Patterns (ZBP):

This series provides economic data by industry at various geographic levels (U.S., state, county, and metro areas). CBP data are derived from the Census Bureau's Business Register, the file of all known business establishments.

Nonemployer Statistics (NES):

Provides U.S. and sub-national data by industry for businesses without paid employees. Nonemployer data originate primarily from the administrative records of other Federal agencies.
