Applying NAICS Codes

One source you can use to apply NAICS codes is the Business Patterns database from the U.S. Census Bureau.  This can help you determine what has been the trend in a particular industry from a National, County, Metro, and Zip Code perspective.  Please note, however, that this will probably not include those establishments that are purely web-based.

You can also use NAICS and SIC codes to find Industry reports from First Research.
