The Census Bureau today released the first results from its Small Business Pulse Survey. The results represent data collected between April 26 and May 2, 2020 and are available at <www.census.gov/businesspulsedata>.
The experimental Small Business Pulse Survey (Business Pulse) measures the changes in business conditions on our nation’s small businesses during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in near real time. Results will inform government response and recovery planning as well as help businesses make decisions.
We plan to update the data every Thursday through July 9. The release includes national, state, and sector results.
