NAICS, SIC and more

March 4th, 2009 by Jack

While doing company searches yesterday, we ran across NAICS, which I told you was an international industry code akin to the SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) code, but I didn’t know what the acronym represented.  So I checked, and it stands for “North American Industry Classification System.”  For background on the relationship between the two codes, click here or here.  To search or translate codes, click here or here.

Also, one more good business database we have access to through school is STAT-USA.  Give it a spin for business, trade, and economic information from across the federal government.
