Dun & Bradstreet: U.S. Business Trends Report
Slow recovery continues, but businesses are still encountering an economy that has yet to bounce back to pre-recession levels.
Business bankruptcies continue to rise, but at a slower rate than the same time last year. Overall U.S. business failure rates have improved over the past year, but failure rates for the transportation, construction, and manufacturing sectors are still 40 percent-80 percent higher than the national average.
Businesses are finding it easier to pay lenders and suppliers, a critical leading indicator of economic health. But the percentage of delinquent dollars is still significantly higher than before the recession, indicating sustained difficulty.
