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.
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:
Selected product categories for manufacturing, wholesale, and retail trade conform and/or were revised to conform to the North American Product Classification System (NAPCS). This continues the introduction of NAPCS that started in the 2002 Economic Census.
Economic Census Due Date: February 12, 2013
Classification Forms Due Date: 30 days after receipt
