Because the Census Bureau updates this infrequently, we have moved this to archives only.
This database reports the establishment size, age, and state based on Business Dynamic Statistics (BDS) from the U.S. Census Bureau. BDS includes measures of establishment openings and closings, firm startups, job creation and destruction by firm size, age, and industrial sector, and several other statistics on business dynamics. These data track changes in employment at the establishment level, and thus provide a picture of the dynamics underlying aggregate net employment growth. The category for age "left censored" indicates firms and establishments born prior to 1976. See category definitions for additional information (Link from this to additional content shown in readme).
