The report applies data from 69 firms, and includes industry market volume, average sales, small business vitality, failure and startup rates, sales per employee and other critical market research measures.

The report applies data only from US firms which identify this classification as their primary line of business. Firms in this market may elect to identify a broader classification only, in which case their sales, etc. may not be attributed to this specific classification. For example, a report on Furniture Retail shops will not include sales data for furniture sales from department stores, which are in a different classification although they sell furniture. Note that the US Market Research series is statistically-driven industry trend report; it is not a narrative report, and no individual company information is conveyed.
