Technical Bulletin Number (TB-1958) 38 pages

This report provides new information on headcount and sales from the National Establishment Time Series (NETS) Database, which provides time series data on establishments in all sectors, including grocery stores and food service outlets. It compares NETS employment numbers from 1998 to 2016 at the State and State levels with the US Census County Business Bureau (CBP) and compares NETS sales from 1998 to 2019 with ERS’s Food Expenditure Series (FES) at the national level. Additionally, this report recalculates NETS sales numbers, allowing researchers to more precisely analyze food sales at a more localized level.
