Do you know the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS, pronounced "nakes") code for the industry you are researching?
The federal government assigns these codes to business establishments for data collection and reporting purposes. Many research resources, such as databases, utilize NAICS codes for searching purposes, to provide a uniform name for industries.
For example: does a particular database call your industry "shoes" or "footwear"? "Apparel" or "clothing"? If you have the NAICS code in hand, you don't have to worry about the words the database uses.
Find NAICS codes for a specific industry using one of the resources below.
