• T-1 displays 7 industries that yield at least 100,000 Blk Firms. They range from Healthcare & Soc Ast (almost 300,000 firms) to the Arts, Enter & Rec industry with 124,500+ Blk Firms. (It’s noteworthy that there are 3 industries that match or have a greater % of Blk Firms than the US’s African Ams pop% of 13%). Unfortunately in the TOP 7, #3 Prof, Science & Tech and #6 Construction ONLY have 3% and 4.7%, respectively of their industries with Blk Firms.
  • T-2 reveals that the receipts from Blk Firms are less than 1% of overall receipts for the various 20 listed industries. $10 B receipts from Blk Firms are produced by 8 specific industries led by Wholesale Trade, $28.4 B, Healthcare & Soc Ast $25.0 B and Manufacturing ($21.8 B). Unfortunately, 2 of the 3 Wholesale Trade & Manufacturing have less than ½% of their industry receipts from their Blk Firms. While Healthcare & Soc Ast Blk Firms yield a weak 3% of their receipts; it surely is more robust than the aforementioned receipts % from Wholesale Trade and Manufacturing.
  • As for receipts per Blk Biz Firm, they share the same stage as Hispanics and Asians with the Mgt of Cos and Wholesale Trade industries producing the greatest receipts per firm with $3.01 M and $1.2 M, respectively. As for the % of the receipts vs the non-Blks in various industries, Blk Firms actually have a higher % of receipts per firm than non-Blk firms in 2 industries, Arts, Enter & Rec (162%) & Realty (110%). CONGRATS, CONGRATS!!
