Small businesses are especially important in NYC, employing approximately 1.7 million individuals as of Q4 2014. Recently, the Center on Urban Future, a NYC think tank, found that just over 90% of all NYC businesses actually had fewer than 20 employees. According to their research, this is a higher percentage than all but one of the 363 metro areas across the United States. This month’s economic snapshot is zooming in on small businesses to review and analyze trends, post-recession growth and ownership demographics in NYC.
