The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is used by business and government to classify business establishments according to type of economic activity (process of production) in Canada, Mexico and the United States. It has largely replaced the older Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system; however, certain government departments and agencies, such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), still use the SIC codes. CSI helps you look those codes up.
This is a Ruby gem, so you'll need a little Ruby-fu to get it working. If you're not familiar with Ruby, there are CSV and TOML data sets available too that you can load into a spreadsheet, database or parse in your favorite programming language.
gem install csi
Or add this to your
gem 'csi', '~> 0.3.3'
For everyone else:
- All NAICS and SIC codes, classifications, and correlations in TOML
- NAICS codes and classifications in CSV
- SIC codes and clasifications in CSV
You can look up 2-6 digits NAICS codes and 2-4 digit SIC codes. Please note: If you ever cast the String codes to Integers, you're gonna have a bad time. SIC code 011 is
011 as a String and
11 as an Integer. The more you know
naics_record = CSI::naics "928110" # => <CSI::Record:0x007fb3c5fdbb98] naics_record.name # => "National Security" CSI::naics("336992").name # => Military Armored Vehicle, Tank, and Tank Component Manufacturing CSI::naics("611310").name # => Colleges, Universities, and Professional Schools CSI::sic("8211").name # => Elementary and Secondary Schools CSI::sic("91") # => "Executive, Legislative, and General Government, except Finance"
You can also lookup correlating SIC codes for NAICS codes and vice-versa!
naics_record = CSI::naics("928110") # => <CSI::Record:0x007fb3c5fdbb98] naics_record.name # => "National Security" naics_record.correlations # => "["9711"]" correlating_sic_record = CSI::sic naics_record.correlations.first # => <CSI::Record:0x007fd0bd9a4fd0> correlating_sic_record.name # => "National Security"
NAICS & SIC Overview
|Digit range||NAICS Definition||SIC Definition|
|1 - 2||Sector||Major Group|
|1 - 3||Subsector||Industry Group|
|1 - 4||Industry Group||Industry|
|1 -5||NAICS Industry||N/A|
The larger the coode, the more specific the industry. Here's a NAICS example:
|48||Transportation & Warehousing (over arching industry and sub-sectors)|
|4812||Nonscheduled air transportation|
|48121||Nonscheduled air transportation|
|481212||Nonscheduled chartered freight air transportation|
All codes and classifications obtained via http://www.census.gov, so you know it's legit.
