The Industry Snapshots present key statistics from three Census Bureau economic programs, as well as per capita ratios using data from Population Estimates. Historical data are not shown when they are not comparable due to NAICS changes. See Definitions and Comparability in the Industry Statistics Portal and the Snapshot FAQs for more information.


The 2012 Economic Census is released on a flow basis so some data may not yet be available, and data for some industries are only available for the U.S. and by State. See the release schedule and the Geographic Coverage Tables for more information.
