WASHINGTON - (Business Wire) Much has been said about small employers of up to 500 workers, but little is known about the three-quarters of firms in the economy that are "nonemployers," generating full - or part-time work for their owners.
These nonemployers, often “mom and pop” corner stores or home-based businesses, comprised more than 70 percent of all businesses.
For data years 2002-2004, the Census Bureau matched nonemployers across years to determine entry and exit by major industry and state.
Exit rates in the time period studied were lower but similar to entry rate levels for both nonemployers and employers.
Of existing companies in 2004, 34.3 percent of nonemployers were new and 12.6 percent of employers were new.
