Survey of Business Owners and Self-Employed Persons (SBO)
The Survey of Business Owners and Self-Employed Persons (SBO) provides statistics that describe the composition of U.S. businesses by gender, race, and ethnicity. Additional statistics include owner`s age, education level, veteran status, and primary function in the business; family- and home-based businesses; types of customers and workers; and sources of financing for expansion, capital improvements, or start-up. Economic policymakers in federal, state, and local governments use the SBO data to understand conditions of business success and failure by comparing census-to-census changes in business performances. Please contact us if you have any questions.
