Federal Reserve Survey of Small Business Finances

The Federal Reserve Board has compiled information on American small businesses, defined as businesses with fewer than 500 employees. The National Survey of Small Business Finances (NSSBF) includes such information as financial characteristics, firm size, use of financial services, and income and balance sheets. Users can access the full publication data, working papers, methodology reports, and codebooks from the 1993 and 1987 surveys. NSSBF has also posted recent changes to surveys, abstracts of research using the 1993 and 1987 data, and an FAQ about the past two surveys.
