Very interesting infographic. Being a small business owner, I'm definitely interested in how other areas are working out. I'm surprised to find the number so high on businesses that are 90+ days behind on payment. That's very unfortunate. More people need to support their local businesses.

You didn't mention the Antiques and Collectibles business. We don't sell anything anyone needs just what they want and with no disposible income most stop buying. Only high end sells to more well off folks. We are generally the first to feel the effects of the economy and the last to recover.
