Definition: Number of business firms

Notes: Business ownership is defined as having 51% or more of the stock or equity in the business. Businesses could be tabulated in more than 1 racial group. This can result because: a. the sole proprietor reported more than one race; b. the majority owner reported more than one race; c. a majority combination of owners reported more than one race. Racial/ethnic groups may not add to the total because a Hispanic or Latino firm may be of any race, and because a firm could be tabulated in more than one racial group.
