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:

71 - Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation

7113 - Promoters of Performing Arts, Sports, and Similar Events

711320 - Promoters of Performing Arts, Sports, and Similar Events without Facilities
