2012 Small Business Profiles for the States and Territories [14 February 2013]


All Profiles

[full-text, 106 pages]


Small Business Profiles for the States and Territories supply data on small businesses in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The publication also provides national-level data and limited data on the U.S. territories.


What do the profiles say about small business health? Despite continuing challenges, the profiles show that the U.S. economy was relatively strong in 2011. At the national level, the unemployment rate was down 0.7 percent between 2010 and 2011, and 48 states reported a decrease as well.  Of these states, 10 had rates equal to the national level. 


The usefulness of the profiles is the great detail it provides about small businesses at the state level. Small business borrowing activity, as well as self-employment by various demographics, are presented. Also covered are the number of firms, small business income, banking, business turnover, industry composition, and employment gains and losses by size of business.


Each profile is available in Adobe PDF format, and an Excel spreadsheet containing all of the profile data is also available. For further information contact Victoria Williams, Economist, at (202) 205-6533 or
