YourEconomy Time Series Data (YTS)

YTS is an annual establishment-level time-series database used by academic researchers, policy makers, and economic development analysts following companies at their unique locations across the U.S. YTS focuses on establishments that are “in- business” meaning they are intent on conducting commercial activities. YTS tracks all establishments (and their jobs and sales), including for-profit (both privately-owned and publicly-traded), non-profits, and government establishments. YTS is used to power the popular and free economic resource youreconomy.org, as well as the free private equity resource, growtheconomy.org

At it’s core, YTS uses the highly verified version of Infogroup Business Historical databases with establishment data from 1997 thru the current year. Each year BDRC also receives complete Infogroup Suspect and Pre-verified databases. We use these large databases to verify and improve the Historical data used in YTS.
