I am messing with yelp academic data set right now and was wondering if there is any info on the financial situation for the small businesses?


Edit: I am looking for the revenues of small businesses in New York, I am trying to analyze corresponding revenues change by the reviews of the customer on yelp.

For example: restaurant A has a 2011 revenue of y, during the end of 2011, a review z is on the yelp website, did that review cause 2012 revenue of A to increase or decrease.

In another word, I want to analyze the corresponding impact on the success each small business in new york due to the rating from yelp. I originally used the closure of a business to indicate the success of one business, but ultimately I would like to use revenue as the indicator, and I am missing that critical piece of data

In Infochimps, you will find hundreds of business related datasets. A few of them are from USA about tax return, receipts and net income. You will find also about revenues for certain business categories.

P.S. If you cannot find what you need in the link, please update your question with more details. Where you have already searched or/and an example of what exactly the dataset you want to contain.

  • Thanks for the answer, although I am aiming toward the revenues of small business in a specific area, for example I would like to know how much a pizza restaurant earned a year, and I want to correspond that to its review to see how the revenue is effected by the customer rating
