2012 Economic Census

2012 Economic Census


Nearly 4 million businesses have received forms for the 2012 Economic Census, the U.S. Government’s official five-year measure of American business and the economy. By law, these businesses must respond by February 12. And because recipients include many of your members, or readers, here’s some important information for them:

  • Get help with forms and report online at econhelp.census.gov
  • Learn all about the Economic Census at business.census.gov 
  • Mark your calendar for our next webinar at 1:00 EST on January 24 when you’ll receive further instruction about the 2012 Economic Census and how to respond. Visit business.census.gov/webinar for more information.

Thanks for helping us inform businesses – their response really does make a difference.

US Population projected to be 315.1 Million on New Year’s Day


As we approach the beginning of 2013 you may be wondering… what will the population of the United States be on January 1, 2013. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that the United States population will be 315,091,138 as of January 1, 2013.  This
represents an increase of 2,272,462, or 0.73 percent, from New Year’s Day 2012
and an increase of 6,343,630, or 2.05 percent, since the most recent Census Day
(April 1, 2010).

In January 2013, one birth is
expected to occur every eight seconds in the United States and one death every
12 seconds.
