Abstract: The location of Manufacturing Plants data are files providing information on the number of manufacturing establishments in each of the approximately 450 manufacturing industries, classified according to their employment size class and the State and county within which they are located. Each logical record is associated with a particular industry (4-digit SIC) and a particular county (or State or U.S. Summary) and contains the number of establishments in seven employment size categories. There is a record for each industry-county or industry-State combination with one or more manufacturing plants. The data are available in two different formats:

  • File ML-1 (Industry by State, county).
  • File ML-2 (State, country by industry).
