About ReferenceUSA

What is it?

ReferenceUSA is a subscription database that offers instant access to comprehensive business and consumer listings. Unlike many free Internet directories, ReferenceUSA data is continually being collected and verified. A detailed business listing contains a list of executives, financial information, public filings and even news articles. 

Who Will Find It Useful?

  • Small-business owners
  • Students enrolled in business and marketing courses
  • Marketing or investment researchers
  • Filing a business complaint? Obtaining the name of a CEO couldn’t be simpler.
  • Job hunters can search for jobs by job skills, location and industry.  Locate companies, locations, their Human Resources contact names and more. 

Information sources used by ReferenceUSA include Yellow Pages, White Pages, annual reports, 10ks and other Securities and Exchange Commission information, government data, business magazines, the US Postal Service, and the US Census Bureau.
