First published March 2011

Using data from the three most recent business census surveys, the most recent just published in December 2010, this report provides estimates of the number, employment and revenues of women-owned firms as of 2011. By sharing these estimates in a timely manner, it is American Express’s aim to inform business planning, program development and enterprise support activities—as well as to shine a light on gains made and barriers to address.
