I want to find this Data

2 replies
Hello All,

I am wanting to find a simple number:

How many businesses in a certain Metropolitan Statistical Area, or even a city?

Any ideas? I can find population, families, households, how many black, white and on and on, but nothing to show how many businesses.

    Our local white pages has a separate section for businesses, You could call them and ask how many business are listed. Or count an average on a page and times it by the # of pages.

      Hi Seb,

      Manta.com has the total number of businesses in every city in the USA.

      Here's an example Cheyenne, Wyoming (WY) Companies & Businesses

      You go to state and scroll down bottom of page and the cities are shown with
      the number of businesses.

      I don't know where they get their numbers, but it is constantly updated.

      All the best,
