Abstract From December 2007 to June 2009, the United States experienced an economic recession followed by a recovery year in 2010. In this brief, we examine changes in self-employment from 2010 to 2011 for the United States as a whole, the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Self-employment includes individuals working in incorporated and nonincorporated businesses, this brief considers changes in both types of self-employment. In addition, we examine changes in total employment from 2010 to 2011 for these same geographies. Finally, we compare the demographic, social, and economic characteristics of incorporated and nonincorporated self-employed workers in 2011.
