The 2012 Economic Census, the federal government's official five-year measure of American business and the economy, is entering its final days of data collection.
Many responses are past due, however, despite "extensions and other considerations in allowing businesses additional time to respond," the Census Bureau said in a news release.
The bureau reminds business owners that an accurate measure of the state of the economy is good for the economy.
A response is also required by law, the bureau points out.
Compliance can be discussed over the phone at 877-790-1876, or the survey can be completed online by going to econhelp.census.gov.
