PrintStats is an APTech member exclusive business demographic resource, jointly developed by industry experts Dr. Joe Webb, Richard Romano, and economic consulting firm ExpliStats. Launched in 2017, PrintStats provides executives, marketers, and other industry professionals with actionable data they can use to estimate market size, identify geographic opportunities, develop sales territory plans, and much more.

Covering a broad range of industries relating to commercial printing, packaging and converting, publishing, and content creation, PrintStats provides users with details on establishments, employees, payroll cost, as well as estimates on the value of shipments and capital expenditures. The baseline data used in PrintStats comes from the 2016 County Business Patterns data series from the U.S. Census Bureau, released in April 2018. This data has been further enhanced, through additional research and statistical analysis, to include industry shipments (or revenues) and capital expenditure estimates for 2017 and 2018 as well as forecasts for 2023**.

Additional information, including a full listing of available reports, is available through the links above.
