I have good news! Here at UMD we now have access to a new database called BizMiner.
We have new capability here. This database will help people in business start-ups, industry analysis, economic analysis, ratio analysis, and benchmarking. This database should be valuable for all our LSBE Departments.
BizMiner offers industry financial analysis benchmarks for over 5,000 lines of business and industry market trends on thousands more. Their market analysis reports are available at the national and local levels down to the zip code. BizMiner is a great resource to use when developing business plans, or for any sort of entrepreneurship initiatives where you need to measure peer performance in an industry. Types of reports:
Industry Financial Profiles
U.S. & Local Market Research Reports (includes business failure rates)
Area Demographic Profiles
Sole Proprietor/Startup Profit & Loss
Local Market Vitality Profile
BizMiner can be accessed from our UMD Library Homepage Database section and it is linked in numerous spots on our Business Research Launch Pad. You may want to access it from this page with its related links:
