New Stats Show Rise of Women Owned Businesses

According to new census statistics, women own almost one in three small businesses in the United States. As the Washington Post reports, “The largest numerical increase was in businesses owned by women, up 1.3 million to a total of 7.8 million. That represented a 20 percent increase over the five-year span. A study published earlier this year by the Guardian Life Small Business Research Institute projected that small businesses run by women will create one third of all new jobs in the upcoming decade.”
