If you're in business, it's time to fill out the 2012 Economic Census

The Economic Census is the U.S. Government's official five-year measure of American business and the economy. It is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, and response is required by law.

Forms go out to nearly 4 million businesses, including large, medium and small companies representing all U.S. locations and industries. Respondents are asked to provide a range of operational and performance data for their companies.

Response to the Economic Census is important for your industry, your community and your business.

Our trade associations and chamber of commerce rely on information from the Census for economic development and business decisions.
