Still lots of interest in small business financing information but to date no U.S. statistical agencies are stepping up to the plate to replace the Federal Reserve's cancellation of the Survey of Small Business Finance (Rebel Cole has an interesting piece out today
using this data for the SBA). John Tozzi has an article reviewing small business lending data
in the U.S. for Bloomberg Businessweek
. And, lastly, the G-20 SME Finance Working Group on Data has preliminary outcome steps
from a recent meeting of experts.
