Using NAICS Codes to find Industry Reports

The United States Census Bureau created a classification system for business entities called the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Several company databases and industry research databases use these to organize their information, and it is useful to know these codes when you are looking for industry reports. These codes start at 2 numbers to identify broad industry group and move to 6 to identify specific industries. 

Example Codes:

561 - Administrative and Support Services

5615 - Travel Arrangement and Reservation Services

561520 - Tour Operators

U.S. Industry Reports from IBISWorld

IBISWorld allows you to search for reports using keywords, company names, or by using NAICS codes. Example Reports: Tourism in the US, Travel Agencies in the US, and Cruise & Travel Agency Franchises in the US
