New Mex­ico tops women-owned busi­ness list

The Taos News - - BUSINESS -

The Land of En­chant­ment has more women-owned busi­nesses than any other state in the na­tion, ac­cord­ing to data from the U.S. Cen­sus Bu­reau an­a­lyzed by telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions provider, Fron­tier Busi­ness.

A to­tal of 51.7 per­cent of New Mex­ico busi­nesses are owned by women, ac­cord­ing to the anal­y­sis. The next clos­est in terms of women-owned busi­nesses are Idaho (50.8), Wash­ing­ton (50.3), Wyoming (50.1) and Ore­gon (50).

Data was based on the 2012 sur­vey of busi­ness own­ers, which was the most re­cently avail­able sur­vey from the Cen­sus Bu­reau. Fron­tier Busi­ness looked at both “fe­male-owned” and “equally male-/fe­male-owned” busi­ness by state.

Over­all, the United States has had a 114 per­cent in­crease in busi­nesses owned by women in the past 20 years, ac­cord­ing to the group.
