NEW ORLEANS - The Association of Small Business Development Centers is holding its annual conference in New Orleans.
One of the featured presentations will be from the U.S. Census Bureau.
The topic of that presentation is the 2012 Economic Census, which measures America's economy and is set to begin in October.
Most people have never even heard of this census, but it's conducted every five years.
Mark Wallace, chief of the Service Sector Statistics Division at the bureau, was in the studio to tell us about the survey and how it can be used, especially by small business owners.
