Introduction to the Economic Census


PURPOSES AND USES OF THE ECONOMIC CENSUS

The economic census is the major source of facts about the structure and functioning of the
nation’s economy. It provides essential information for government, business, industry, and the
general public. Title 13 of the United States Code (Sections 131, 191, and 224) directs the Census
Bureau to take the economic census every 5 years, covering years ending in “2” and “7.”

The economic census furnishes an important part of the framework for such composite measures
as the gross domestic product estimates, input/output measures, production and price indexes,
and other statistical series that measure short-term changes in economic conditions. Specific uses
of economic census data include the following:

• Policymaking agencies of the federal government use the data to monitor economic activity and
  to assess the effectiveness of policies.

• State and local governments use the data to assess business activities and tax bases within
  their jurisdictions and to develop programs to attract business.

• Trade associations study trends in their own and competing industries, which allows them to
  keep their members informed of market changes.

• Individual businesses use the data to locate potential markets and to analyze their own produc-
  tion and sales performance relative to industry or area averages.

INDUSTRY CLASSIFICATIONS

Data from the 2002 Economic Census are published primarily according to the 2002 North Ameri-
can Industry Classification System (NAICS). NAICS was first adopted in the United States, Canada,
and Mexico in 1997. The 2002 Economic Census covers the following NAICS sectors:

21                          Mining
22                          Utilities
23                          Construction
31-33                       Manufacturing
42                          Wholesale Trade
44-45                       Retail Trade
48-49                       Transportation and Warehousing
51                          Information
52                          Finance and Insurance
53                          Real Estate and Rental and Leasing
54                          Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services
55                          Management of Companies and Enterprises
56                          Administrative and Support and Waste Management and Remediation Services
61                          Educational Services
62                          Health Care and Social Assistance
71                          Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation
72                          Accommodation and Food Services
81                          Other Services (except Public Administration)

(Not listed above are the Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, and Hunting sector (NAICS 11), partially
covered by the census of agriculture conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the
Public Administration sector (NAICS 92), largely covered by the census of governments conducted
by the Census Bureau.)

The 20 NAICS sectors are subdivided into 100 subsectors (three-digit codes), 317 industry groups
(four-digit codes), and, as implemented in the United States, 1,179 industries (six-digit codes).

U.S. Census Bureau, 2002 Economic Census
RELATIONSHIP TO HISTORICAL INDUSTRY CLASSIFICATIONS

Prior to the 1997 Economic Census, data were published according to the Standard Industrial Clas-
sification (SIC) system. While many of the individual NAICS industries correspond directly to indus-
tries as defined under the SIC system, most of the higher level groupings do not. Particular care
should be taken in comparing data for retail trade, wholesale trade, and manufacturing, which are
sector titles used in both NAICS and SIC, but cover somewhat different groups of industries. The
1997 Economic Census Bridge Between NAICS and SIC demonstrates the relationships between
NAICS and SIC industries. Where changes are significant, it may not be possible to construct time
series that include data for points both before and after 1997.

Most industry classifications remained unchanged between 1997 and 2002, but NAICS 2002
includes substantial revisions within the construction and wholesale trade sectors, and a number
of revisions for the retail trade and information sectors. These changes are noted in industry defi-
nitions and will be demonstrated in the Bridge Between NAICS 2002 and NAICS 1997.

For 2002, data for enterprise support establishments (those functioning primarily to support the
activities of their company’s operating establishments, such as a warehouse or a research and
development laboratory) are included in the industry that reflects their activities (such as ware-
housing). For 1997, such establishments were termed auxiliaries and were excluded from industry
totals.

BASIS OF REPORTING

The economic census is conducted on an establishment basis. A company operating at more than
one location is required to file a separate report for each store, factory, shop, or other location.
Each establishment is assigned a separate industry classification based on its primary activity and
not that of its parent company. (For selected industries, only payroll, employment, and classifica-
tion are collected for individual establishments, while other data are collected on a consolidated
basis.)

GEOGRAPHIC AREA CODING

Accurate and complete information on the physical location of each establishment is required to
tabulate the census data for states, metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, counties, and
corporate municipalities (places) including cities, towns, townships, villages, and boroughs.
Respondents were required to report their physical location (street address, municipality, county,
and state) if it differed from their mailing address. For establishments not surveyed by mail (and
those single-establishment companies that did not provide acceptable information on physical
location), location information from administrative sources is used as a basis for coding.

AVAILABILITY OF ADDITIONAL DATA

All results of the 2002 Economic Census are available on the Census Bureau Internet site
(www.census.gov) and on digital versatile discs (DVD-ROMs) for sale by the Census Bureau. The
American FactFinder system at the Internet site allows selective retrieval and downloading of the
data. For more information, including a description of reports being issued, see the Internet site,

763-4100.

HISTORICAL INFORMATION

The economic census has been taken as an integrated program at 5-year intervals since 1967 and
before that for 1954, 1958, and 1963. Prior to that time, individual components of the economic
census were taken separately at varying intervals.

The economic census traces its beginnings to the 1810 Decennial Census, when questions on
manufacturing were included with those for population. Coverage of economic activities was
expanded for the 1840 Decennial Census and subsequent censuses to include mining and some
commercial activities. The 1905 Manufactures Census was the first time a census was taken apart

                                                                       U.S. Census Bureau, 2002 Economic Census
from the regular decennial population census. Censuses covering retail and wholesale trade and
construction industries were added in 1930, as were some service trades in 1933. Censuses of
construction, manufacturing, and the other business censuses were suspended during World War
II.

The 1954 Economic Census was the first census to be fully integrated, providing comparable cen-
sus data across economic sectors and using consistent time periods, concepts, definitions, classi-
fications, and reporting units. It was the first census to be taken by mail, using lists of firms pro-
vided by the administrative records of other federal agencies. Since 1963, administrative records
also have been used to provide basic statistics for very small firms, reducing or eliminating the
need to send them census report forms.
The range of industries covered in the economic census expanded between 1967 and 2002. The
census of construction industries began on a regular basis in 1967, and the scope of service
industries, introduced in 1933, was broadened in 1967, 1977, and 1987. While a few transporta-
tion industries were covered as early as 1963, it was not until 1992 that the census broadened to
include all of transportation, communications, and utilities. Also new for 1992 was coverage of
financial, insurance, and real estate industries. With these additions, the economic census and the
separate census of governments and census of agriculture collectively covered roughly 98 percent
of all economic activity. New for 2002 is coverage of four industries classified in the agriculture,
forestry, and fishing sector under the SIC system: landscape architectural services, landscaping
services, veterinary services, and pet care services.
Printed statistical reports from the 1992 and earlier censuses provide historical figures for the
study of long-term time series and are available in some large libraries. Reports for 1997 were
published primarily on the Internet and copies of 1992 reports are also available there. CD-ROMs
issued from the 1987, 1992, and 1997 Economic Censuses contain databases that include all or
nearly all data published in print, plus additional statistics, such as ZIP Code statistics, published
only on CD-ROM.

Wholesale Trade


SCOPE
The Wholesale Trade sector (sector 42) comprises establishments engaged in wholesaling mer-
chandise, generally without transformation, and rendering services incidental to the sale of mer-
chandise.
The wholesaling process is an intermediate step in the distribution of merchandise. Wholesalers
are organized to sell or arrange the purchase or sale of:
 1. goods for resale (i.e., goods sold to other wholesalers or retailers),
 2. capital or durable nonconsumer goods, or
 3. raw and intermediate materials and supplies used in production.
Wholesalers sell merchandise to other businesses and normally operate from a warehouse or
office. These warehouses and offices are characterized by having little or no display of merchan-
dise. In addition, neither the design nor the location of the premises is intended to solicit walk-in
traffic. Wholesalers do not normally use advertising directed to the general public. Customers are
generally reached initially via telephone, in-person marketing, or by specialized advertising that
may include Internet or other electronic means. Follow-up orders are either vendor-initiated or
client-initiated, generally based on previous sales, and typically exhibit strong ties between sellers
and buyers. In fact, transactions are often conducted between wholesalers and clients that have
long-standing business relationships.
This sector comprises two main types of wholesalers: merchant wholesalers that sell goods on
their own account and business to business electronic markets, and agents and brokers that
arrange sales and purchases for others generally for a commission or fee.
 1. Establishments that sell goods on their own account are known as wholesale merchants, dis-
    tributors, jobbers, drop shippers, and import/export merchants. Also included as wholesale
    merchants are sales offices and sales branches (but not retail stores) maintained by manufac-
    turing, refining, or mining enterprises apart from their plants or mines for the purpose of mar-
    keting their products. Merchant wholesale establishments typically maintain their own ware-
    house, where they receive and handle goods for their customers. Goods are generally sold
    without transformation, but may include integral functions, such as sorting, packaging, label-
    ing, and other marketing services.
 2. Establishments arranging for the purchase or sale of goods owned by others or purchasing
    goods, generally on a commission basis, are known as business to business electronic mar-
    kets, agents and brokers, commission merchants, import/export agents and brokers, auction
    companies, and manufacturers’ representatives. These establishments operate from offices
    and generally do not own or handle the goods they sell.
Some wholesale establishments may be connected with a single manufacturer and promote and
sell the particular manufacturer’s products to a wide range of other wholesalers or retailers. Other
wholesalers may be connected to a retail chain, or a limited number of retail chains, and provide a
variety of products needed by the retail operation(s). These wholesalers may obtain the products
from a wide range of manufacturers. Still other wholesalers may not take title to the goods, but
act as agents and brokers for a commission.
Although wholesaling normally denotes sales in large volumes, durable nonconsumer goods may
be sold in single units. Sales of capital or durable nonconsumer goods used in the production of
goods and services, such as farm machinery, medium and heavy duty trucks, and industrial
machinery, are always included in wholesale trade.

Exclusions. Excluded from this sector are governmental organizations classified in the covered
industries except for liquor wholesalers operated by state and local governments.

The tabulations for this sector do not include central administrative offices or other establish-
ments that serve wholesale establishments within the same organization. Data for such establish-
ments are classified according to the nature of the service they provide. For example, separate
headquarters establishments are reported in NAICS sector 55, Management of Companies and
Enterprises.

The reports described below exclude establishments of firms with no paid employees. These
“nonemployers,” typically self-employed individuals or partnerships operating businesses that
they have not chosen to incorporate, are reported separately in the Nonemployer Statistics report.
The contribution of nonemployers may be examined at www.census.gov/nonemployerimpact.

Definitions. Industry categories are defined in Appendix B, NAICS Codes, Titles, and Descrip-
tions. Other terms are defined in Appendix A, Explanation of Terms.

REPORTS

The following reports provide statistics on this sector.

Industry Series. There are 19 reports, each covering a group of related industries. The reports
present, by kind of business for the United States, general statistics for establishments of firms
with payroll on number of establishments, sales, payroll, and employment; comparative statistics
for 2002 and 1997; product lines; and concentration of business activity in the largest firms. The
data in industry reports are preliminary and subject to change in the following reports.

Geographic Area Series. There is a separate report for each state, the District of Columbia, and
the United States. Each state report presents, for establishments of firms with payroll, general sta-
tistics on number of establishments, sales, payroll, employment, operating expenses, and inven-
tory by kind of business for the state, metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas, counties,
and places with 2,500 inhabitants or more. Greater kind-of-business detail is shown for larger
areas. The United States report presents data for the United States as a whole for detailed kind-of-
business classifications.

Subject Series:

• Product Lines. This report presents sources of sales data for establishments of firms with pay-
  roll by kind of business. Data are presented for the United States and states.

• Establishment and Firm Size (Including Legal Form of Organization). This report pre-
  sents sales, payroll, and employment data for the United States by sales size, by employment
  size, and by legal form of organization for establishments of firms with payroll; and by sales
  size (including concentration by largest firms), by employment size, and by number of estab-
  lishments operated (single units and multiunits) for firms with payroll.

• Miscellaneous Subjects. This report presents data for a variety of industry-specific questions
  for establishments of firms with payroll. Presentation of data varies by kind of business.

                                                                       U.S. Census Bureau, 2002 Economic Census
 3. Metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas. A core based statistical area (CBSA) contains a
    core area with a substantial population nucleus, together with adjacent communities having a
    high degree of social and economic integration with that core. CBSAs are differentiated into
    metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas based on size criteria. Both metropolitan and
    micropolitan statistical areas are defined in terms of entire counties, and are listed in Appen-
    dix E, Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas.

     a. Metropolitan Statistical Areas (metro areas). Metro areas have at least one urbanized area of
        50,000 or more population, plus adjacent territory that has a high degree of social and eco-
        nomic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties.

     b. Micropolitan Statistical Areas (micro areas). Micro areas have at least one urban cluster of
        at least 10,000 but less than 50,000 population, plus adjacent territory that has a high
        degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties.

     c. Metropolitan Divisions (metro divisions). If specified criteria are met, a metro area contain-
        ing a single core with a population of 2.5 million or more may be subdivided to form
        smaller groupings of counties referred to as Metropolitan Divisions.

     d. Combined Statistical Areas (combined areas). If specified criteria are met, adjacent metro
        and micro areas, in various combinations, may become the components of a new set of
        areas called Combined Statistical Areas. The areas that combine retain their own designa-
        tions as metro or micro areas within the larger combined area.

 4. Counties and county equivalents defined as of January 1, 2002. Counties are the primary divi-
    sions of states, except in Louisiana where they are called parishes and in Alaska where they
    are called boroughs, census areas, and city and boroughs. Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, and
    Virginia have one place or more that is independent of any county organization and consti-
    tutes primary divisions of their states. These places are treated as counties and as places.

 5. Economic places.

     a. Municipalities of 2,500 inhabitants or more defined as of January 1, 2002. These are areas
        of significant population incorporated as cities, boroughs, villages, or towns according to
        the 2000 Census of Population. For the economic census, boroughs, census areas, and city
        and boroughs in Alaska and boroughs in New York are not included in this category.

     b. Consolidated cities defined as of January 1, 2002. Consolidated cities are consolidated gov-
        ernments that consist of separately incorporated municipalities.

     c. Townships in Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and towns in New York, Wisconsin,
        and the six New England states with 10,000 inhabitants or more (according to the 2000
        Census of Population).

     d. Balance of county. Areas outside the entities listed above, including incorporated munici-
        palities with populations of fewer than 2,500, towns and townships not qualifying as
        noted above, and the remainders of counties outside places are categorized as “Balance of
        county.”

DOLLAR VALUES

All dollar values presented are expressed in current dollars; i.e., 2002 data are expressed in 2002
dollars, and 1997 data, in 1997 dollars. Consequently, when making comparisons with prior
years, users of the data should consider the changes in prices that have occurred.

All dollar values are shown in thousands of dollars.

COMPARABILITY OF THE 1997 AND 2002 ECONOMIC CENSUSES

Both the 2002 Economic Census and the 1997 Economic Census present data based on the North
American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Under the 1997 NAICS, Wholesale Trade was
comprised of two subsectors: 421, Wholesale Trade, Durable Goods, and 422, Wholesale Trade,

2002 Economic Census                                                              Wholesale Trade      xi
U.S. Census Bureau, 2002 Economic Census
Nondurable Goods. In addition, the U.S. Census Bureau presented data in the Wholesale Trade sec-
tor by three type-of-operation categories: 1) Merchant wholesalers, 2) Manufacturers’ sales
branches and offices, and 3) Agents, brokers, and commission merchants.

Under the 2002 NAICS, to recognize production differences in some types of operation, the Whole-
sale Trade sector was reorganized into three subsectors: 423, Merchant Wholesalers, Durable
Goods; 424, Merchant Wholesalers, Nondurable Goods; and 425, Wholesale Electronic Markets and
Agents and Brokers. The 2002 NAICS industry definitions for Merchant Wholesalers in subsectors
423 and 424 include type-of-operation categories for manufacturers’ sales branches and offices,
as well as the 1997 Census Bureau-defined merchant wholesalers. Agents and brokers are defined
as a separate NAICS industry in subsector 425 and are no longer included in the type-of-operation
structure. For 2002, data are presented by two type-of-operation categories: 1) Merchant whole-
salers, except manufacturers’ sales branches and offices, and 2) Manufacturers’ sales branches
and offices. For more details, see Types of Operation in Appendix A.

RELIABILITY OF DATA

All data compiled for this sector are subject to nonsampling errors. Nonsampling errors can be
attributed to many sources: inability to identify all cases in the actual universe; definition and
classification difficulties; differences in the interpretation of questions; errors in recording or cod-
ing the data obtained; and other errors of collection, response, coverage, processing, and estima-
tion for missing or misreported data. Data presented in the Miscellaneous Subjects and Product
Lines reports for this sector are subject to sampling errors, as well as nonsampling errors.

The accuracy of these tabulated data is determined by the joint effects of the various nonsam-
pling errors or by the joint effects of sampling and nonsampling errors. No direct measurement of
these effects has been obtained except for estimation for missing or misreported data, as by the
percentages shown in the tables. Precautionary steps were taken in all phases of the collection,
processing, and tabulation of the data in an effort to minimize the effects of nonsampling errors.
More information on the reliability of the data is included in Appendix C, Methodology.

DISCLOSURE

In accordance with federal law governing census reports (Title 13 of the United States Code), no
data are published that would disclose the operations of an individual establishment or business.
However, the number of establishments in a kind-of-business classification is not considered a dis-
closure; therefore, this information may be released even though other information is withheld.
Techniques employed to limit disclosure are discussed at
www.census.gov/epcd/ec02/disclosure.htm.

AVAILABILITY OF MORE FREQUENT ECONOMIC DATA

The County Business Patterns program offers annual statistics on the number of establishments,
employment, and payroll classified by industry within each county, and Statistics of U.S. Busi-
nesses provides annual statistics classified by the employment size of the enterprise, further clas-
sified by industry for the United States, and by broader categories for states and metropolitan
areas.
