The U.S. Census Bureau has released the 2014 County Business Patterns (CBP) statistics on Thursday, April 21, 2016. CBP covers more than 7.5 million U.S. business establishments, and provides employment and payroll data at subnational levels by industry.
In the Greater Mankato area, Blue Earth and Nicollet Counties, there are 2,573 establishments (businesses). This is 12 more than the year before.
Blue Earth ranked 12th in the State in annual payroll with $1,228,666,000. Nicollet was 30th with $472,813,000 in annual payroll. As a region, payroll increased by $61,333,000 or 3.74% over the last year.
