5,000,000 total businesses *

4,995,000 privately held **

4,715,000 small businesses***

Of the 180,000,000 people employed…

90,000,000 are employed by the 4,995,000 privately held businesses.

These numbers are rounded for simplicity.
* Note, this excludes solo businesses with one employee
** I have included the approximately 10,000 thinly, or not traded OTC stocks.
*** This includes businesses with more than 10 but less than 100 employees.
