How many companies are there in the United States that fall into each of the following revenue categories: <26M, 26M - 100M, 100M - 250M, 250M - 500M, 500M - <1B, 1B - 2B, 2B - 5B, 5B - 10B, 10B & above?

Hello! Thanks for your question. I understand that you are seeking the number of companies in the United States in different revenue categories that have been specified. The two most useful sources that I found to answer your question are the Small business Association (SBA) and the United States Census Bureau. The short answer is that as of 2013 Census data, there were over 5.6M companies with revenues ranging from $0-$25M. On the high end, there were just 27 companies with revenues exceeding $10B. Below is a deep dive of the research.

METHODOLOGY

I searched through the following sources - Government reports/databases, industry reports, corporate websites, and trusted media sites. Based on the information I gathered from the United States Census Bureau and other sources, I was able to find specific information about the total number of companies in the United States, as well as the size of those companies based on revenue. The data is based on information gathered about United States industry in 2013.

I pulled the information for figures up to the billion-dollar range from the downloadable, searchable spreadsheet located on both the SBA website as well as the United States Census Bureau website. However, the breakdown of information for the companies with revenues above $1 billion slightly differs from the revenue ranges you requested. Meaning, revenue ranges are represented in round fives. To get a breakdown of the billion dollar companies, I had to use additional sources and analyze them, along with the SBA spreadsheet, in the context of the number of companies with revenues greater than $1 billion. This helped me arrive at the numbers which fit the specified revenue category ranges.

In addition, the numbers beyond the $100 million mark had to be individually counted using the SBA and Census spreadsheets and the filter function.

Please note that this information encompasses United States entities identified as public and private firms (companies) only, including all industries from gambling to fashion and everything in between. The data excludes all establishments and small businesses that have unsubstantiated revenue and/or unreported income.

THE RESULTS
As of 2012, there were around 6 million companies in the U.S.
As explained above, I have obtained the following figures from the downloadable, searchable spreadsheet available on the SBA and the U.S. Census Bureau websites. I also used Forbes. I have formatted the information as follows:

revenue range – – number of companies
$0 to $25M -- 5,640,800
$25M to $100M -- 62,968
$100M to $250M -- 211
$250M to 500M -- 572
$500M to $1B -- 1,069
$1B to $2B -- 500
$2B to $5B -- 152
$5B to $10B -- 53
More than $10B -- 27

CONCLUSION
To wrap it up, as of 2013 Census data, there were over 5.6M companies with revenues ranging from $0-$25M. On the high end, there were just 27 companies with revenues exceeding $10B.
