Report Sheds Light on Veteran-Owned Businesses and their Owners

The Office of Advocacy has released a report on veteran-owned businesses. The report gives a detailed profile of this robust business population based on the latest available data, the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2012 Survey of Small Business Owners.

• In 2012, the United States had 21.2 million veterans, and 2.52 million businesses were majority-owned by veterans.
• Almost all of veteran-owned businesses (99.9 percent) were small businesses.
• Veteran-owned firms had receipts of $1.14 trillion, employed 5.03 million people, and had an annual payroll of $195 billion.
• These firms represented 9.1 percent of all U.S. firms.
• The three states with the most veteran-owned businesses were California, Texas, and Florida.
• The three states with the highest percent of veteran-owned businesses in their populations were South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia.

The report is called Veteran-Owned Businesses and Their Owners: Data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Survey of Business Owners. It is one of the only large-scale compilations of data on veteran-owned businesses in the United States, and it provides valuable data for analytical and policymaking.
