If you need New York State-specific statistics, check out SBA's State Economic Profiles. These annual profiles show the number of small, women-owned, and minority-owned businesses for each state; business turnover (new firms, bankruptcies and terminations); employment; small business income; sources of financing; firms by industry and firm size; and non-farm establishment job gains and losses by firm size. The 2004 New York profile is available in two formats: PDF or plain text.
This data is also available on the NYS SBDC web site at: http://www.nyssbdc.org/News/SmallBizStats/smallbizstats.html.
