Business Establishment Characteristics by ZIP Code
  -- data resources & data analytics

Among all approximate 38,800 ZIP codes in the U.S.with business establishments, ZIP Code 10001 has more than 7,200 establishments. 9 of the top 10 ZIP codes, ranked on total number of business establishments, are located in Manhattan (New York County, NY); the 10th largest in Miami. Use the interactive table below to examine ZIP code business establishment characteristics of interest.

Business establishments are the places of employment that drive and characterize the economy. ZIP codes are the smallest geography for which business establishment data are available. ZIP code business patterns data can help stakeholders identify areas of employment, business opportunities and more. While we can obtain employment data (by place of residence) for ZIP code areas from the American Community Survey 5-year estimates (ACS), the number of establishments and employment by place of work are only available from the ZIP business patterns data. More about these data.

Use tools described in this section to analyze patterns and characteristics of ZIP code business patterns. The interactive table provides data on the characteristics of business establishments for 2012 and 2013 by ZIP code. Use the GIS tools and related GIS project to develop variations of the views shown below.

ZIP Code Business Data
The annually updated ZIP business data are derived from a confidential register of businesses maintained by the Census Bureau. The register contains a record for each known establishment in the U.S. with employees. An establishment is a single physical location where business transactions take place and for which payroll and employment records are kept. Unlike sample-based household estimates, such as provided by the American Community Survey 5-year estimates (ACS), the ZIP business patterns data are based on data reported by individual businesses. The individual establishment business data are summarized at the ZIP code, county and for higher level geography.

The scope of subject matter is provided in two separate sets of summary data. The "totals" data, as used above in this section, provide data on the total number of establishments, first quarter payroll, employment and annual payroll. The "detailed" data provide summaries for establishments, employment and payroll by industry/business sector (by NAICS codes).

Most NAICS industries are included. Crop and animal production (NAICS 111,112), rail transportation (NAICS 482), Postal Service (NAICS 491), pension, health, welfare, and vacation funds (NAICS 525110, 525120, 525190), trusts, estates, and agency accounts (NAICS 525920), private households (NAICS 814), and public administration (NAICS 92) are excluded. While most government establishments are excluded, the following are included: government sponsored wholesale liquor establishments (NAICS 4248), retail liquor stores (NAICS 44531), book publishers (511130), federally-chartered savings institutions (NAICS 522120), federally-chartered credit unions (NAICS 522130), and hospitals (NAICS 622).
