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:

721 - Accomodation

721120 - Casino Hotels

713 - Amusement, Gambling, and Recreation Industries

713210 - Casinos (except Casino Hotels)
