Annual Report of the Office of Economic Research, FY 2018
Advocacy’s Office of Economic Research (OER) is the only federal office statutorily tasked with examining small business challenges and contributions in the U.S. economy.
In fiscal year 2018, OER continued to provide timely and relevant small business research to its stakeholders. For the first time, OER disseminated economic data on the number of small businesses, employment, and payroll by congressional district. OER conducted research on several important topics. These include business turnover, business dynamics, employment, finance, minority business ownership, and regulation.
This report summarizes all research products and lists all presentations from the OER-hosted Small Business Economic Research Forum in FY 2018, as well as provides a current overview of publicly available economic data on small businesses.
