Women’s Business Center Client Growth Dynamics

This interactive dashboard was created using client survey data from the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Women’s Business Center (WBC) program.

Select a business characteristic on the right-side filter pane to explore the annual change in the average business client to a WBC, by industry, age group, or geographic region. The orange bar represents the average change in the 2014 and 2015 WBC client population. The blue bar represents the change in businesses given the characteristic you selected. For example, click the circle next to “Age: less than 1 year” to see the annual revenue growth, employment growth, and percentage of businesses that received financing for businesses that have been in operation for less than 1 year at the time they visited a WBC.

Be aware that there are many factors that affect business growth that are neither shown in this dashboard nor collected from clients by the SBA. Additionally, the survey methodology does not permit attribution of change to the assistance provided by the WBCs.
