2018 Small Business Profiles for the States and Territories
The Small Business Profiles are an annual portrait of each state’s small businesses. They gather the latest federal data into state-by-state snapshots of small business health and economic activity. Limited economic data is also provided for the U.S. territories.
This year’s profiles report on state economic growth and employment. They also answer the questions:
- How many small businesses are in my state?
- How many jobs do they create?
- Which industries have the most small businesses and small business jobs?
- How many establishments opened and closed?
- How many small businesses export, and how much?
- Which counties have the most small business employment?
The files below contain the 50 individual state profiles, plus profiles for the United States, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. These are followed by a combined file of all the profiles, state rankings in 20 economic categories, and an explanatory data methodology.
