The Small Business Profiles are produced by the U.S. Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy.

Each report incorporates the most up-to-date government data to present a unique snapshot of small businesses. Small businesses are defined for this profile as firms employing fewer than 500 employees.

Net small business job change, employees of minority-owned businesses, and exporter share statistics are based on the 2016 Statistics of U.S. Businesses, 2016 Annual Survey of Entrepreneurs, and 2016 International Trade Administration data, respectively.
