This webinar will cover the Census Business Builder and the Survey of Business Owners resources available from the United States Census Bureau.

In mid-September 2015, the Census Bureau launched its new business tools for small business expansion or startups. The tool enables the business owner to conduct basic market research with a few simple clicks.

Also, the long-awaited 2012 Economic Census release, the Survey of Business Owners, details characteristics of businesses: women-owned, veteran-owned, African American-owned, Asian-owned, Hispanic-owned. This release may be the first to indicate the effect of the economic downturn on small businesses.
