I'm looking for a detailed split in the number of companies in the US
(nationwide) based on revenues generated. Answer needs to have a
reputable source and data as new as possible.
There is no answer at this time.

I'm not exactly sure what you're searching for, but the economic
census lists indsutries by revenue and number of companies.  I
downloaded this in XLS format.$|NAICS2002|NAICS2002$|OPTAX$|FOOTID|YEAR|ESTAB|RCPTOT|PAYANT|EMP&-_lang=en&-fds_name=EC0200A1

Looking at publicly traded companies we can find the following breakdown:
(source: Yahoo! Finance)

$100 billion +: 13 companies
$50-100 billion: 43 companies
$25-50 billion: 79 companies
$10-25 billion: 215 companies
$5-10 billion: 238 companies
$1-5 billion: 959 companies
$500 million - 1 billion: 589 companies
$250 million -$500 million: 670 companies
$100-250 million: 895 companies
$10-100 million: 2331 companies
$0-10 million: 1625 companies

I'm actually looking for the "yahoo like" numbers but for the whole
economy, including the non-listed companies.
