How can I find business failure rates by size of firm, industry group, and geographic region?


Use Business Dynamics Statistics (BDS) from the US Census Bureau. 

See Business Employment Dynamics from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Search Private sector establishment births and deaths, seasonally adjusted.

Also, look at the U.S. Census Bureau's Statistical Abstracts Series (historical data through 2012). Failure rates are located in the Business Enterprise section.
