Estimates and Projections

Subcounty Population Estimates: July 1, 2005 — Last year, Port St. Lucie, Fla., perhaps best known as the spring training home of the New York Mets, was the nation’s fastest-growing city of 100,000 or more people.

Economics


 

Economic Surveys

2004 County Business Patterns — This report covers small business growth, average employee wages and geographic concentration of industries across the nation. The data — published annually since 1964 and at irregular intervals back to 1946 — are provided at various geographic levels, including state, county and metropolitan statistical area. (Tentatively scheduled for release mid-June.)

2002 Economic Census

Survey of Business Owners: Native Hawaiian- and Other Pacific Islander-Owned Firms: 2002 — Report on the state of these businesses from a survey conducted every five years. Statistics are shown separately for businesses with and without paid employees. The report includes data on sales and receipts for the nation, states and local areas with 100 or more Native Hawaiian- and other Pacific Islander-owned businesses. Also, data on business ownership for major, individual Pacific Islander groups are included. Due to limitations, publications of data will be withheld at many levels of geography. (Scheduled for release June 28.)

Survey of Business Owners: American Indian- and Alaska Native-Owned Firms: 2002 — Report on the state of these businesses from a survey conducted every five years. Statistics are shown separately for businesses with and without paid employees. The report includes data on sales and receipts for the nation, states and local areas with 100 or more American Indian- and Alaska native-owned businesses. The 2002 survey did not include tribal-owned businesses —considered to be government entities — so the data are not directly comparable to those collected in the 1997 survey. (Tentatively scheduled for release in late-June.)
