Industry Focus quickly reports the top industries for an area, age group or sex. It allows users to focus in on a particular industry to see how it ranks among others and look at the characteristics of those who work in that industry. Like QWI Online, Industry Focus is based on eight quarterly workforce indicators, including total employment, measures of change such as job flow, new hires and separations, and average earnings.

The Census Bureau conducts nearly one hundred surveys and censuses every year. Data from the following surveys and censuses are available in Data.Census.Gov (formerly American FactFinder): Decennial Census; American Community Survey; Puerto Rico Community Survey; Economic Census; Population Estimates Program; Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM); County Business Patterns (CBP) and ZIP Code Business Patterns (ZBP); and Nonemployer Statistics (NES) Data Sets.
County Business Patterns (CBP) is an annual series that provides subnational economic data by industry. This data is useful for studying the economic activity of small areas; analyzing economic changes over time; and as a benchmark for other statistical series, surveys, and databases between economic censuses.
ZIP Code Business Patterns data are available shortly after the release of County Business Patterns. It provides the number of establishments by employment-size classes by detailed industry in the U.S.
