How the Coronavirus Recession and Recovery Have Affected Businesses and Jobs in the 100 Largest Metropolitan Areas

ICIC presents the most detailed and comprehensive information about what has happened to businesses and jobs in each of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas during the coronavirus recession and recovery.  On a quarterly basis, we track the changes in the numbers of businesses and jobs by:

  • Under-resourced communities and non-under-resourced communities. (ICIC defines under-resourced communities as relatively heavily populated areas of high poverty and low income located in metropolitan areas.)
  • Race/ethnicity of business owners.
  • Size of business.
  • Industry.

The information we provide will be useful to policymakers, small business assistance providers, community and economic development professionals, community foundations, researchers, and others who want to know how the recession and recovery have affected businesses and jobs in their metropolitan areas and how they can best target assistance to the businesses and locations that need it most.

A summary report gives an overview of the impacts.  For the most detailed information about what has happened to different types of businesses and their jobs in each metropolitan area, see our data dashboard, where you can select the geographic areas and types of businesses in which you are interested.
