The economic censuses are the major source of facts about the structure and functioning of the Nation's economy. They provide essential information for government, business, industry, and the general public. Economic censuses furnish an important part of the framework for such composite measures as the gross national product, input-output measures, production and price indexes, and other statistical series that measure short-term changes in economic conditions. Policy-making agencies of the F ederal Government use the data, especially in monitoring economic activity and providing assistance to business. State and local Governments use the data to assess business activities and tax bases within their jurisdictions and to develop programs to attract business. Trade associations study trends in their own and competing industries, and keep their members informed of market changes. Individual businesses use the data to locate potential markets and to analyze their own production and sales performance relative to industry or area averages. Title 13 of the United States Code (sections 131, 191, and 224) directs the Census Bureau to take the economic censuses every 5 years, covering years ending in 2 and 7. The 1987 Economic Censuses consist of the: Census of Retail Trade, Census of Wholesale Trade, Census of Service Industries Census of Transportation, Census of Manufactures, Census of Mineral Industries, and the Census of Construction Industries. Special programs also cover enterprise statistics and minority-owned and women-owned businesses. The 1987 Census of Agriculture and 1987 Census of Governments are conducted separately. The next economic censuses are scheduled to be taken in 1993 covering the year 1992. This file identifies geographic areas and industrial or business categories by codes, including codes for the United States, regions, divisions, States, Standard Consolidated Areas, Standard Metropolitan Areas, counties, and places
