County Business Patterns is an annual series that provides sub-national economic data by industry. This event featured Patrice Norman and Belitza Rojas Lopez, who took questions from the public live during the event on Facebook and Twitter.

County Business Patterns provides the only detailed annual information on the number of establishments, employees, and first quarter and annual payroll for most of the 1,100 industries covered at the national, state and county levels.

Businesses use County Business Patterns data for analyzing market potential, measuring the effectiveness of sales and advertising programs, setting sales quotas, and developing budgets. Government agencies use the data for administration and planning.

For the first time, County Business Patterns has expanded to include economic statistics for the four Island Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands).
In 2009, businesses with paid employees numbered 7.4 million, a decline of 168,000 establishments from 2008, marking the second consecutive year of decline. Further, between 2008 and 2009, employment dropped 5.3 percent, a decrease of more than 6 million employees, for a total of 114,509,626.
