The map provides an interactive, easy-to-understand overview of how many types of businesses are in any community. The map includes 2011 County Business Patterns statistics combined with demographic statistics from the 2010 Census. County Business Patterns provides annual statistics on businesses with paid employees within the U.S. and Puerto Rico. These statistics provide the only detailed annual information on the number of establishments, employees, and quarterly and annual payroll for nearly 1,200 industries covered at the national, state and county levels.
