The SBA’s Office of Advocacy has released its annual small business profiles for the United States and each of the 50 states.
An annual analysis of each state’s small business activities, the data-rich, user-friendly profiles capture vital information on the U.S. and state-level economic growth, industry, and jobs using completely reproducible data from the leading government statistical agencies.
The small business profiles illustrate the state and national economies in terms of small business employment, diversity, and trade and show the most important small business industries, both in the number of firms and number of employees.
They also show establishment turnover trends, county-level job change, and business owner demographic.
Connecticut’s small business profile indicates that the state’s small businesses employed 732,750 people, or 49.3% of the private workforce, in 2014—the most recent year for which data is available.
