Women owned firms have increased as a share of total businesses over the years, but they remain smaller, on average, than male-owned firms. In 2012, 36 percent of business owners were women. The most recently available data on the number of women owned businesses are from 2007. These data show there were 7.8 million women owned firms and they averaged $130,000 in receipts in 2007.
