Good news! Not much has changed since 2007. However, we have made several improvements that should make filing easier, including:
Electronic reporting is easier:
Over the past 5 years we have incorporated many features requested by companies into our Census Surveyor software. We are now allowing companies with single locations to Report Online. Please visit our Electronic Reporting page for more information.
More relevant content:
Inquiries on purchase of contract manufacturing and receipts from contract manufacturing were added to selected forms to better measure changing business characteristics.
More standardized product detail:
The following industries will report sales lines and revenue sources according to the new North American Product Classification System (NAPCS):
- Sector 31-33, Manufacturing
- Sector 42, Wholesale Trade
- Sector 44-45, Retail Trade
This will allow us to produce product data that is comparable across industries.
Economic Census Due Date: February 12, 2013
