Question ID: 724659
I am trying to identify the breakdown of the number of U.S. businesses
(not just corporations, but also partnerships and sole
proprietorships) by revenue range.  Specifically, I need to know how
many businesses in the US have annual revenue between $5 million and
$250 million.  The more detail the better as far as the breakdown
goes.  I would also like to have the sources used to provide the data,
as the revenue range I need to use may change over time.

According to Dun and Bradstreet's Million Dollar Database of US
companies, there are 364,900 companies in the US with annual revenues
between $5 million and $250 million.

These are broken out as follows:

162,902 -- $5 - 10 million

123,203 -- >10 - 25 million

43,720 -- >25-50 million

21,887 -- >50-100 million

7,174 -- >100-150 million

3,692 -- >150-200 million

1,298 -- >200-225 million

1,033 -- >225-250 million

These figures include corporations, partnerships, proprietorships and
numerous other forms of businesses, and represent the most recent year
available in D&B (which is generally pretty current).

By the way, statistics on business income are also available from the
IRS, but unfortunately (and rather foolishly!), they only provide
breakouts at the less-than-a-million range, and after than, lump
everything together.  Your government at work!

I trust this information fully answers your question.

However, please don't rate this answer until you have everything you
need.  If there's anything more I can do for you, just post a Request
for Clarification, and I'm happy to assist you further.
