Getting Started with Industry Research

How do I find Industry data, statistics, key ratios, analysis?


  • The first step is to identify the industry you want to research. Here are 2 methods:
  1. Go to the Industry Codes page to find the NAICS and SIC codes for the industry
  2. If you have a company in mind, and simply want to research the industry for that company—look the company up in Mergent Online or Nexis Uni Company Dossiers. The company profiles will include the industry codes. 


Good luck!
