US Firm Size

I was just looking around the IBM Many Eyes site and found that you can now embed visualizations into blogs!

One that I have always been fascinated with is the distribution of revenue in US businesses.

This below is the number of non-employer and employer firms in the US - the vast majority are smaller, one person outfits. Try playing with the selector on the bottom right. It changes whether or not you are looking at the number of firms, employees or revenue.

It's amazing how much revenue is tied up in such a small number of entities. Food for thought.
