More Business Patterns Data and Maps Now Available

cbp_thumbRing in the new year with new data!

We recently introduced detailed industry data from the 2014 County Business Patterns (CBP) to the site. Now, we have more data available in both our reports and maps. The Census Bureau developed the CBP as an annual series to provide economic data by industry. These data include the number of establishments, employment, first quarter payroll, and annual payroll. Much of the data is organized by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), standardized codes used by the federal government to track and analyze industry and establishments.

Our 2014 County Business Patterns data are now also available at the zip code level in both tables and maps. In addition to the number of establishments, employment, first quarter payroll, and annual payroll, average employee wage data are now also available.

For example, in the U.S., jobs in Management of Companies and Enterprises have the highest average employee wage ($108,228), followed by jobs in Utilities ($96,546).

Looking at the five boroughs of New York City, average employee wages vary by sector and borough.

In Bronx-based establishments, Construction jobs have the highest average employee wage ($65,103), followed by Management of Companies and Enterprises jobs ($57,277).

In Brooklyn establishments, Utilities jobs have the highest average employee wage ($89,137), followed by Information jobs ($77,825).

In Manhattan establishments, Information jobs have average wages nearly double Brooklyn Information jobs, but other sectors eclipse those wages by much more. Manhattan Finance and Insurance jobs have the highest average employee wage ($305,048), followed by Management of Companies and Enterprises jobs ($165,845). Manhattan Finance and Insurance employees earn on average nearly five times as much as Bronx Construction employees.
