We rarely use infographics created by others. However, we are fans of the SBA Office of Advocacy and their ongoing surveys. By the way, “Advocacy” (which it is often called in Washington) was created to be an independent voice for small business within the federal government. So while it has “SBA” in its name, in many ways, it is independent of the SBA. It is also the watchdog for the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) and the source of small business statistics. Advocacy advances the views and concerns of small business before Congress, the White House, the federal agencies, the federal courts, and state policymakers.
