New Features of Business Database ReferenceUSA

ReferenceUSA is a database with information on more than 24 million companies in the United States. The library has had a subscription to ReferenceUSA for many years. In the past year several new features have been added: there is a new mapping feature, historical data and a new section of jobs and internship listings.

Each company entry includes the company name, divisions and subsidiaries, address, line of business, number of employees, annual sales and more. The database is searchable by company name, industry, geography and several other options as can be seen in the accompanying screen shot.

The new mapping feature lets you create a map down to the street level and get a list of companies within that map. Or you can create your list of companies first and plot them on a map. For detailed information on creating a map view the tutorial listed on the Business Plans guide.

The U.S. Jobs/Internships section of the databases has over 2.5 million postings. Search by job title, company name, business type, geographic area, etc.

Historical Data has over 150 million records dating back to 2003. Search by geography, sales volume, employment size, etc. Compare company sales and/or number of employees.
