Economic Census ~ Comprehensive Portrait of American Business

In November and December, more than 4 million American businesses, including 22,000 businesses in the Providence-New Bedford-Fall River metro area, will receive 2012 Economic Census forms. Responses to the questionnaire are required by law (Title 13, U.S. Code), to be returned by February 12, 2013.

Every 5 years, the Economic Census develops a comprehensive portrait of American business, from the national to the local level. Timely and accurate data are vital to promote effective public policy, which is important to GPCC and our membership.

A special Web page has been created at to inform our members about the Economic Census.  It also provides statistics you can use to assess and grow your business operations.
