US Census Invites Business to Participate in Economic Census

Washington, DC, USA -- In November and December, more than 4 million American businesses, including 2700 amusement parks and arcades, 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 effective public policy and important to your company.

The Census Bureau has created a special Web page at business.census.gov to tell you about the Economic Census, and provide statistics you can use to assess and grow their business operations.

Learn more on October 11 at 1pm EST at a webinar designed for organizations like yours. Get the details at business.census.gov/webinar. You can contact the Economic Census outreach staff at 1-877-790-1876, or e-mail at econ.2012@census.gov.
