Self-Employed Research and Statistics

The NASE has become a primary resource for legislators, businesses and the media to see what micro-business owners are doing.

There’s only one way to make sure the NASE represents the opinions of micro-businesses on Capitol Hill and through a tailored benefits package and that’s by asking.

Through nation-wide surveys on topics such as health coverage and retirement security, the NASE ensures it has the pulse of micro-business.
