1 Puerto Rican Entrepreneurship in the U.S. Research Brief issued April 2017 By: Jennifer Hinojosa Centro RB Puerto Rican entrepreneurs were the fastest growing business firms in the U.S. According to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau s Survey of Business owners 1, Puerto Rican business firms in the U.S. employed over 250,000 employees and generated $24.4 billion in sale revenues in Driven by population growth within the U.S. mainland and the recent Puerto Rican migration from Puerto Rico, Puerto Rican owned businesses exploded throughout the nation, especially in areas of new settlement. Data from the 2002, 2007, and 2012 U.S. Census Bureau s Survey of Business Owners were used to analyze national and state level trends among Puerto Rican business owners relative to the other groups in the nation. National Trends Although Puerto Rican entrepreneurs only made 1 percent of nation s total business establishments in 2012, they are the fastest growing entrepreneurs in the United States. As of 2012, more than half of all business firms in the U.S. were owned by non-hispanic whites (69.8%) followed by Hispanics overall (12%), non-hispanic blacks (9%), and Puerto Ricans (1%). In a 10-year span, Puerto Rican owned business firms increased by 96 percent, from 109,475 in 2002 to 258,221 in Correspondingly, all Hispanic business firms also grew from 1.6 million in 2002 to 3.3 million in 2012, an increase of 43 percent. On the other hand, non-hispanic black entrepreneurs grew from 1.2 million to 2.5 million, with an increase of 72 percent. Lastly, non-hispanic white business firms were the only group to experience no growth in the nation, from 87 percent in 2002 to 70 percent in 2012, declined by 19 percent (see table 1). Gender Nationally, more than half of all businesses were maleowned (55%) followed by 36 percent owned by females and the remaining 9 percent were both female and male owned in 2012 (see figure 1). Contrary to the 2012 national rates, the share of Puerto Rican female entrepreneurs (53%) showed higher rates of businesses ownership relative to their Puerto Rican male counterparts (46%) in the U.S. (see figure 1). In contrast to 2007, Puerto Rican maleowned businesses (54%) was higher compared to females (40%) and male/female owned businesses (5%). Similarly to Puerto Rican female entrepreneurs, non-hispanic black female entrepreneurs (59%) also showed higher rates relative to their male counter parts (39%) and to the nation as a whole (36%) in On the other hand, male-owned business firms were higher among non-hispanic whites and Hispanics overall (57% for non-hispanic white male owned firms and 52% for Hispanic male-owned firms) than 1

2 female-owned businesses (33% for non-hispanic white female owned firms and 44% for Hispanic female owned firms) in Among, all female entrepreneurs in the nation in 2012, Puerto Rican (53%) and non-hispanic black (59%) were more likely to be business owners than non-hispanic white (33%) and Hispanic (44%) female entrepreneurs in the U.S. The findings for Puerto Rican male owned businesses (46%) showed higher rates than non-hispanic blacks (39%) but lower than the national rate (55%), Hispanics overall (52%), and non-hispanic whites (57%). Nationally, the gender gap between male and female entrepreneurs was 23 percent in 2007 and declined to 18 percent 2012, a difference of 5 percentage points (see figure Table 1.

According to the 2012 Survey of Business Owners, Puerto Ricans and non-hispanic black female entrepreneurs were among the only group to reverse the male to female gender gap. As shown in figure 2, Puerto Rican female entrepreneurs surpassed Puerto Rican male entrepreneurs by 7 percentage points (53% of Puerto Rican business firms owned by females and 46% of Puerto Rican business firms owned by males) and reversed the gender gap from 14 percent in 2007 to -7 percent in In other words, Puerto Rican female entrepreneurs outpaced their male counterparts in Similarly, non-hispanic black female entrepreneurs also exceeded non-hispanic black male entrepreneurs in 2012, as well as in For example, there were at least 3 percent more female black owned businesses than males in 2007 and the number of female entrepreneurs increased to 20 percent in 2012 (see figure 2). On the other hand, non-hispanic white firms showed the widest gap between male and female entrepreneurs, 26 percent in 2007 and 24 percent in This finding was also found among Hispanic owned businesses in both years, from 19 percent in 2007 Figure 2.

4 to 7 percent in Industry & Total Revenues In 2012, Puerto Rican owned businesses generated more than $24.4 billion in total sale revenues, a 47 percent increase from 2007 ($16.6 billion). Relative to other groups in the U.S., non-hispanic whites ($11 trillion) showed the highest combined gross receipts (also known as total sale revenues) followed by Hispanic owned firms ($473.6 billion), and non-hispanic blacks ($150.2 billion) in As shown in table 2, compared to all U.S. firms (12%), Puerto Rican (47%) owned businesses showed the highest percent change in total sales revenues, followed by all Hispanic firms (35%), non-hispanic blacks (11%), and non-hispanic whites (7%), between 2007 and This finding suggest Puerto Rican owned businesses are not only increasing in terms of the number of business establishments throughout the nation, but they are showing a promising economic future as their total sales revenues increased by 47 percent in a 5 year span.

Puerto Rican female owned businesses generated $6 billion in Top 10 industries owned by Puerto Rican female entrepreneurs included: health care and social assistance (26%), other services (23%), administrative and support and waste management and remediation services (15%), professional, scientific, and technical services (9%), retail trade (7%), arts, entertainment, and recreation (4%), real estate (4%), educational services (3%), accommodation and food services (3%), and lastly construction (2%).

The increasing Puerto Rican population in the U.S. South was a result of migration from Puerto Rico due to the Island s financial crisis and internal migration from states of traditional settlement has led states like Florida become a hot spot for Puerto Rican entrepreneurs. As shown in table 4, the presence of Puerto Rican owned businesses continues to grow rather than decline in states of traditional settlement like: New York (21.6%), New Jersey (7.7%), Pennsylvania (5.4%), Illinois (4.2%), Connecticut (3.6%), and Massachusetts (2.9%) in More importantly, it is evident, based on the most recent 2012 and 2002 Survey of Business Owners from the U.S. Census Bureau, Puerto Rican entrepreneurs are increasingly Figure 3.

7 growing throughout the nation. The surge of Puerto Rican owned businesses in non-traditional states like Florida, Texas, California, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia doubled and in some states even tripled in size since 2002 (see table 4). For example, the number of Florida s Puerto Rican entrepreneurs tripled in the state, from 24,480 business establishments in 2002 to 71,291 in 2012, an addition of 46,811 in a 10 year span. Correspondingly, Puerto Rican owned businesses in Texas, although ranked in 8th place, also grew from 3,362 in 2002 to 8,351 in 2012, an increase of at least 5,000 additional Puerto Rican establishments. Modest growth was seen across Southern states like: Georgia (+3,543), North Carolina (+3,320), and Virginia (+2,927). The growth of Puerto Rican entrepreneurs in the U.S. South is attributed to the internal migration of Puerto Ricans from (1) traditional states to the southern region, (2) southern states (like Florida) to other southern states, and lastly (3) migration from Puerto Rico. Six of the top 10 sates- New York (21.6%), New Jersey (7.7%), Pennsylvania (5.4%), Illinois (4.2%), Connecticut (3.6%), and Massachusetts (2.9%) accounted for 43 percent of all Puerto Rican owned businesses in the U.S. While Florida outranked New York in 2007 and 2012, in terms of the proportion of Puerto Rican owned businesses, New York Puerto Rican entrepreneurs along with other states of traditional settlement grew between 2002 and For example, in terms of absolute growth of Puerto Rican entrepreneurs, Massachusetts increased by 4,723 while Connecticut increased by 6,058, New Jersey increased by 9,354, and lastly New York increased by 24,192 Puerto Rican entrepreneurs between 2002 and A Closer Look at Florida and New York In 2012, Puerto Rican entrepreneurs generated at least $4.8 billion in Florida and $3.2 billion in New York alone in total sales revenue. Popular industries among Puerto Rican owned businesses in Florida included: other services (21%), administrative and support and waste management and remediation services (18%), professional, scientific, and technical services (10%). Although, Puerto Rican owned businesses within the manufacturing sector made up only 2 percent in Florida State, it generated $1.1 billion in sales revenue alone. This accounted for 23 percent of all total sales revenue among Puerto Rican owned firms in Florida. Unlike Florida, not one industry reached $1 billion among all Puerto Rican owned businesses in New York State. Popular industries among Puerto Rican owned businesses in New York included: health care and social assistance (23%), other services (22%), and lastly administrative and support and waste management and remediation services (12%). Summary and Conclusion Overall, the findings from this report showed Puerto Rican owned businesses is on the rise nation-wide, more importantly, in areas of both new and old settlements. The rapid increase of Puerto Rican entrepreneurs was attributed to the growing and dispersion of Puerto Rican communities throughout the nation, especially areas in the South and West Coast. Despite Puerto Rican population declines in some states of traditional settlement, Puerto Rican entrepreneurs continue to grow. 1 Data for the Survey of Business Owners (SBO) is collected every 5 years and provides selected socio-demographic and economic characteristics of business owners in the United States and Puerto Rico.
