Every year when Fortune publishes their list of largest US companies — the Fortune 500 or 1000 — it is always interesting to get a sense of growth in business. Especially these days.

If you wanted to make the F1000 this year, your sales/revenue needed to be $1.729 billion. That honor goes to Career Education. That is 5.6% higher than last year’s #1000 on the list – -Helmerich & Payne. For the previous year, the change was 3.8% for that top spot.

Want to be in the top 500? Last year, that was SCANA at $4.621 billion. This year, it only grew by 0.3%. Legg Mason made it at #500 with revenue of $4.634 billion.
