Definitions: The Accommodation and Foodservices sector (sector 72) comprises establishments providing customers with lodging and/or prepared meals, snacks, and beverages for immediate consumption. The 2007 Economic Census classifies businesses according to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), 2007.

Sales includes payments from customers for services rendered, from the use of facilities and from merchandise sold. If tax-exempt, sales includes dues and assessments from members and affiliates. Sales do not include carrying or other credit charges; sales and other taxes (including Hawaii's General Excise Tax) collected from customers and forwarded to taxing authorities; gross sales and receipts of departments or concessions operated by other companies; and commissions or receipts from the sale of government lottery tickets. Excluded are sales from civic and social organizations; amusement and recreation parks; theaters; and other recreation or entertainment facilities providing food and beverage services.

Scope and Methodology:

The 2007 Economic Census measured activity during calendar year 2007. Large- and medium-size firms, including all firms known to operate more than one establishment, and a sample of small employers were sent questionnaires to be completed and returned to the Census Bureau by mail. Most very small firms were not sent a form, and data from existing administrative records of other Federal agencies were used instead.

These data include only establishments with paid employees. These data exclude governmental establishments.
