Some of these databases are currently available through MCCC Library A-Z Databases.

Industrial classification helps individuals identify industries, their profiles, and related products and services.  It is useful in both business intelligence and corporate industry research.

There are three main classification systems currently in use today:

North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is the standard used by Federal statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy.

You may search by keyword or 2-6 digit code (if available).

Standard Industrial Classification (SIC)

The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) are four-digit codes that categorize the industries that companies belong to based on their business activities.  While NAICS codes are replacing SIC codes in business and industry, SIC codes are still widely used today.

Standard International Trade Classification (SITC)

The Standard International Trade Classification (managed by the United Nations Statistics Divisions) classifies industries on an international scale.  Its tables can be used effectively to identify companies and industries in participating countries.
