From SIC to NAICS
Since the 1930's, the basic four-digit coding system used to describe the U.S.
economy has been the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Manual.
The SIC has undergone many revisions but the underlying structure has remained basically unchanged.
Beginning in the summer of 2002 and extending into 2003, LMI data series
were converted to the new six-digit North American Industry Classification System
(NAICS, rhymes with "snakes"). This represented a major revision of the
industries and, for the first time, the coding structure. NAICS provides a new view
that better reveals the inner workings of the U.S. economy but initially may be challenging for data users.
