The ABS is a new survey planned for survey years 2017-2021. The ABS will replace the Survey of Business Owners for employer businesses, the Annual Survey of Entrepreneurs, the Business R&D and Innovation Survey for Microbusinesses, as well as the Innovation component of the Business R&D and Innovation Survey.

The ABS is a joint project between the U.S. Census Bureau and the National Science Foundation’s National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics. The purpose of the ABS is to reduce respondent burden, increase data quality, reduce operational costs and increase efficiency. The survey will produce annual minority-owned business estimates as well as annual R&D estimates on small employer businesses. Further, the survey will measure new business topics such as innovation and technology as well as other business and business owners characteristics. This webinar will give a background on the ABS, the survey components it has absorbed, and briefly discuss methodology and planned data product tabulation levels.

Presenter:
Naomi Blackman, Supervisory Survey Statistician, US Census Bureau
