Featured Database - ReferenceUSA
ReferenceUSA is an essential information source for finding information on businesses, individuals, and physicians. There are three separate sections in Reference USA.
With over 14 million US businesses listed and updated continually, this database is comprehensive and current. You can search by company name, location (down to zip code level) business type, sales volume, number of employees, parent company and more. Some companies even have job postings and current news articles included. The real strength of this database is that you can make custom lists by using your own combinations of search criteria.
