NETS database by Walls & Associates
Coverage of over 54 million unique establishments on a national basis with over 300 data fields, including:
Establishment Data: The NETS Database has over 300 fields that uniquely describe each establishment from 1990 to 2012. These variables include business type, location information, employment, sales, Dun and Bradstreet ratings and payment performance, and special indicators like minority or women-ownership and whether the establishment imports or exports.
Covers all businesses including sole-proprietors and the self-employed: NETS includes all businesses including from every industry level, and containing the self-employed, sole-proprietors, and partners. No company left behind!
Corporate Affiliation: Headquarters identifiers (HQDuns) are available in every year, as well as an indicator if there has been a headquarters (ownership) change. In addition, the numbers of related establishments or establishments reporting to a headquarters are also computed.
Relocation Behavior: Every significant establishment relocation is chronicled with 30 fields that tell us the move year, SIC, origin and destination, distance of move, employment and sales in the move year, type of location and whether the establishment is still active in the last year. In addition, we have the latitude-longitude of all origins and destinations of all moves.
Building a better economic resource
The cumulative effect of our mission instilled into the IEGC Databank is to assemble and avail large time-series data sets that continue to unveil the reality of the dynamic U.S. economy. Currently deposited into the databank:
NETS: A true business census of the U.S. economy, attempting to locate, verify, and count every establishment (and its jobs and sales) at its unique location anywhere in the U.S., Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands.
Current data: IEGC assembled and verified D&B DMI files for latest full calendar year. To produce and verify the best time-series dataset and strengthen the current year data, IEGC goes back through the NETS data to verify and update any information where the current data reflects necessary changes.
Growth factors: Establishment and job births, deaths, expansion, contraction, move in/out for EVERY state, MSA, or county from 1995 thru 2013
Alternative linkages: Alternative linkages from D&B DMI files identifying operational categories (eg. franchise, co-op, dealer, health, partnership) starting in 2013.
