    Why should you care about the economic census if you don’t own a business?
    • The data produced from the economic census guides business decisions that affect you and the community you live in.
    • Businesses use economic census data to decide where to locate (impact on services and local economy), how much to produce (impact on employment), and how their business compares to other businesses in their industry or community (impact on improvements).
    • Local communities use economic census data to attract new businesses, assess the economic health of their localities, understand the characteristics of their business base and compare their community to other areas. Individuals can also use economic census data to identify emerging job markets and growing industries.
