ZIP Code Business Patterns
The ZIP Code Business Patterns interactive ranking table shown in this section provides data on the characteristics of business establishments for 2007 and 2008 by ZIP code. The ZIP business patterns data are derived from the Standard Statistical Establishment List (SSEL), a confidential register of businesses maintained by the Census Bureau. The register contains a record for each known establishment U.S. or Puerto Rico and has employees.
An establishment is a single physical location where business transactions take place and for which payroll and employment records are kept. Groups of one or more establishments under common ownership or control are firms. A single-unit firm owns or operates only one establishment. A multi-unit firm owns or operates two or more establishments.
Integrate these data with your data in analyses. Examine opportunities and competitive position. More detailed characteristics of businesses, by type of business, are available.
