The Census data is the place to go for county and place level data. In order to use Census data you will need to know the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) and code for your business.   A link to the NAICS webpage is giving below be sure that you know how the Census Bureau classifies your business or industry so that you can retrieve  the proper data. 


Use the information on this page to find out how the Census  Bureau classifies your industry. Listed on this page are the first two digits of the NAICS code and the corresponding description. This description will be used to identify the table that contains the data for your industry.
