This infographic presents selected findings from the 2012 Economic Census Advance Report, which shows the large employment growth in the health care and social assistance sector from 1997 to 2012. This is the first in a series of 2012 Economic Census reports that will be released over the next two years.


The Economic Census gives the nation a window to view change in the U.S. economy. For example, due to the substantial growth in Health Care and Social Assistance employment during the past 15 years, it is

now the leading sector in employment. Taken every five years, the Economic Census gives an update on 1,000 industries and over 15,000 communities across the country.


The graph provides findings from the 2012 Economic Census Advance Report, the first in a series of releases from the census. Future releases will focus on specific industries and America’s communities

(including more than 5,000 small towns never before covered in the census). The Economic Census helps businesses and government measure past performance and plan for future growth.
