Help shape the 2022 Economic Census

December 17, 2020

The Census Bureau is requesting public input on the Economic Census. Conducted every five years, the survey serves as the most comprehensive source of information about American businesses. According to the Census, the survey establishes data for nearly 1,000 industries and more than 20,000 regions, including company revenues, and is used to support measures of gross domestic product and standard industry classifications (i.e. NAICS). The starting point for the 2022 survey will be the questions asked in 2017. Comments are requested by Feb. 12, 2021, and should be directed to Kimberly Moore, the Census Bureau’s chief of the economy-wide statistics division at econ.content@census.gov.
