Small Businesses in the U.S.

Generally speaking small businesses have up to 100 employees. According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2004:

  • About three quarters of all U.S. business firms had no payroll. Most were self-employed persons operating unincorporated businesses
  • There were almost 20 Million (19,523,741) Nonemployer firms
  • There were almost 5 Million Firms with up to 100 employees (4,980,165)

That adds up to about 99% of all businesses in the U.S. being small businesses.
