We often hear the term "small business" used when talking about our local economies, but just what is a small business?
This webinar will cover the business size data available from the recently-released Economic Census (as well as other Census programs), and how you can use these data in your own definition of a "small business."
The webinar will also include a demo of how to access these data in data.census.gov, and how best to use it.
