NEW YORK, May 18, 2020 — Today, FORTUNE announced the 66th FORTUNE 500, its annual list of the largest corporations in the United States, ranked by revenue for the 2019 fiscal year. Additionally, FORTUNE and Qlik, the official analytics partner of the FORTUNE 500, have launched the “History of the FORTUNE 500” interactive site. This visual experience, developed by Qlik, takes users on a journey through the FORTUNE 500.

According to FORTUNE, the revenue threshold for making the 2020 FORTUNE 500 list was $5.7 billion, up 1% from last year. In total, FORTUNE 500 companies represent two-thirds of the U.S. GDP, with $14.2 trillion in revenues (up 4%), $1.2 trillion in profits (up 8%), $20.4 trillion in market value (down 10%), and employ 29.2 million people worldwide.
