The Synthetic Longitudinal Business Database (SynLBD) provides a synthetic longitudinal business micro-level database created from the U.S. Census. It contains no geographic or firm-level information but it does provide establishment data from all sectors from 1976 – 2000.
Establishment level data
21 million establishments from 1976-2000 are included.
Synthesizes information on establishments’ employment, payroll, birth and death years, and industrial classification.
Still in beta stage, data are available from 1976-2000 currently.
Generated by fitting models based on confidential data and simulating replacement values for those models. They have been tested for disclosure risk.
