Announcing the Small Business Profiles for Congressional Districts
The Office of Advocacy has launched a new series, the Small Business Profiles for the Congressional Districts. The congressional district profiles are part of Advocacy’s state profile series, which provides user-friendly snapshots of national, state, and congressional district small business statistics.
The district profiles focus on the impact of small employers. Each profile provides the district’s total number of small employers and their industry breakout, plus the number of people employed and payroll expended. The profiles also show the total number of self-employed workers and a map showing how they are distributed in the district. “Even at the congressional district level, the data clearly show small businesses play a key role in the economy,” said Acting Chief Counsel for Advocacy Major L. Clark III. “These new profiles demonstrate that small businesses are an important constituency in a congressional district,” he said.
The profiles cover the 436 congressional districts in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and they are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The district lines are based on the 115th Congress. Notes on the data and methodology used are available here.
