Government Reports and Statistics

National and state governments gather data on industries and on the demographic makeup of the nation and smaller areas.

The U.S. Census Bureau, for example, gathers and distributes industry data such as the number of establishments, sales or shipments, materials consumed in manufacturing and concentration ratios. It also gathers demographic data related to age, race, educational level, income, and occupation, and so on.
