FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30: NATIVE-OWNED BUSINESSES

Profile America — Friday, November 30th.  As National American Indian Heritage Month draws to a close, attention is being focused on the increasing role American Indians and Alaska Natives play in the country's economy.  Businesses owned by this group grew in a recent five-year period and now number more than 237,000.  They generate nearly $34.5 billion in annual revenue.  Just over half of these firms are in construction, retail trade, and wholesale trade.  The largest number of firms owned by American Indians and Alaska Natives — nearly 46,000 — is in California; Oklahoma and Texas follow.  You can find current data on the country's economy — on the go — by downloading the new "America's Economy" mobile application at www.census.gov/mobile.
