Industry Codes

Searchers will notice that many of the ASU Library databases use industry codes (NAICS, SIC, NACE) to help limit and target a company search.

"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" (US Census Bureau).
