This dataset shows the 1,040 Six-Digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Codes profiled by Annual Sales Ranges (Sales from all Locations Aggregated by Headquarters), Number of Employees and Number of Employees on Site from the NAICS Association. The 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. NAICS offers an array of highly reliable and valuable resources to assist companies in determining all things pertaining to NAICS Codes. The NAICS code search includes industry classifications created by the “North American Industry Classification System”. NAICS is an industry classification system that groups establishments into industries based on the similarity of their production purpose. For use by government policy analysts, academics, researchers, the business community and the public.
There is no central government agency with the role of assigning, monitoring or approving NAICS codes for establishments. NAICS Codes are self-assigned based on the establishment’s primary activity (the activity that generates the most revenue for the establishment). Individual establishments are assigned NAICS codes by various agencies for various purposes using a variety of methods. The U.S. Census Bureau has no formal role as an arbitrator of NAICS classification. The U.S. Census Bureau assigns one NAICS code to each establishment based on its primary activity (the activity that generates the most revenue for the establishment) to collect, tabulate, analyze and disseminate statistical data describing the economy of the United States. Generally, the U.S. Census Bureau’s NAICS classification codes are derived from information that the business establishment provided on administrative, survey or census reports. (e.g. when a company applies for an Employer Identification Number (EIN), information about the type of activity in which that business is engaged is requested in order to assign a NAICS code).
