North American Industry Classification System (NAICS): UPDATE

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS pronounced Nakes) is the industry classification system used by the statistical agencies of the United States and replaces the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system. It is the first economic classification system to be constructed based on a single economic concept and identifies hundreds of new, emerging, and advanced technology industries. To learn more about the background, the development and the difference between NAICS and the SIC, visit the following Census website:

NAICS uses a hierarchical structure to classify establishments from the broadest level to the most detailed level using the following format:
Sector2-digitSectors represent the highest level of aggregation. There are 20 sectors in NAICS representing broad levels of aggregation.33Manufacturing
Subsector3-digitSubsectors represent the next, more detailed level of aggregation in NAICS. There are 100 subsectors in NAICS.334Computer and electronic product manufacturing
Industry Group4-digitIndustry groups are more detailed than subsectors. There are 317 Industry groups in NAICS.3341Computer and peripheral equipment manufacturing
NAICS Industry5-digitNAICS industries are the level that, in most cases, represents the lowest level of three country comparability. There are 725 five-digit industries in NAICS.33411Computer and peripheral equipment manufacturing
National Industry6-digitNational industries are the most detailed level of NAICS. These industries represent the national level detail necessary for economic statistics in an industry classification. There are 1179 U.S. industries in NAICS United States, 2002.334111
Electronic computer manufacturing
Computer storage device manufacturing
Computer terminal manufacturing
Other computer peripheral equipment manufacturing

As of 2004, industry and geographic data will be published on a NAICS 2002 basis only. These reports will provide NAICS 2002 data down to the six-digit U.S. industry detail level. Links for data for the 2002 Economic Census reports for computers and peripheral equipment are below.
