I have neglected to mention a couple of popular data releases from the Census Bureau in the last few months. Unfortunately, these are not 2008 or 2009 data, which is the time period everyone really wants currently.
United States businesses with employees added more than 100,000 establishments in 2007, bringing the total number to 7.7 million and adding more than 650,000 employees to their payrolls. Overall, employees of businesses in the United States earned more than $5 trillion in annual payroll in 2007, up from $4.8 trillion in 2006.

Nonemployer Statistics is an annual series of information about businesses without paid employees that are subject to federal income tax, as described in introductory material. Most nonemployers are self-employed individuals operating very small unincorporated businesses, which may or may not be the owner's principal source of income. These firms are excluded from most other business statistics (the primary exception being the Survey of Business Owners).
