Entrepreneurship Regions
Entrepreneurship regions are based on the U.S. Census Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) for the 2000 U.S. Census. These regions were used because they are the areas upon which the long form of the U.S. Census is based and they are one of the few data sources where detailed statewide information about entrepreneurs can be found. PUMA regions contain between 100,000 and 200,000 people and have been structured so that they do not cross Metropolitian Statistical Areas (MSAs) or County lines. The clickable map below gives detailed geographic information about the counties and metro areas contained in each PUMA.

Click a PUMA on the map below to go to a page for that PUMA or select a PUMA from the pull-down list.
