2023 Small Business Profiles for the States, Territories, and Nation

Advocacy’s annual State Profiles gather the latest federal small business economic data into state-by-state snapshots of small business economic activity.

The 2023 State Profiles uses the latest business dynamics data to highlight changes to employment and establishment openings and closings by state since the pandemic. Additionally, the profiles highlight each state’s new small business lending by large banks, small business statistics by industry, small business exports, and business owner demographics using the latest federal data.

  • How many small businesses are in my state?

  • How many jobs do they create?
  • How many establishments opened and closed?
  • What industries have the most small businesses?
