"It's true that large, established corporations have been shedding jobs for the past couple of decades, but it's important to note the sector that has been most impressive at creating new jobs: young, small businesses."

Anecdotally, I'm inclined to echo that sentiment, although I do wonder about finer points such as the lifespan of these jobs and the sectors in which the job creation is taking place. (Restaurants, for example, would certainly qualify as young, small businesses, but they are also a service sector entrepreneurial venture that has a knack of high turnover and marginal wages. Call centers might also qualify if measured against traditional monolithic corporations or public sector employers.) Do you know if this sort of information is being tracked? I can imagine it's not straightforward, but I can also imagine an official rationale for simply identifying broad trends without disclosing specifics.
